Welcome to the webpage for Sonic Overload. As my regular listeners know by now, I play punk, hardcore, garage and other loud music, although there are surprises from time to time as well as decidedly slanted commentary on the “issues of the day” and that’s also presented through song selections and audio clips.


All of the shows from January 2009 to the present are archived for download at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

JANUARY 15, 2018


      It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day and you have people asking the current president if he’s a racist. Said president says he doesn’t want immigrants from “shithole” countries. He wants it based on merit. He doesn’t want to provide opportunities for people from those “shithole” countries to better their lives. Is he a racist? Damn fucking right he is… and when Trump tells a reporter that he’s the least racist person they’ll interview, you’re expecting him to say “some of my best friends are…”

      I’ll leave it at that. While you think about King’s legacy, realize that it’s far from fulfilled. In fact, it’s going in the opposite direction.
