From 2004--the Ronald Reagan "tribute"

On June 5, 2004, former president Ronald Reagan died. Naturally, this passing had to be noted on Sonic Overload so almost all of the June 7 show was a "tribute" of sorts, where I played pretty much every song about Reagan and related topics that I could dig up. I did end up missing a few and those were played the following week.

This is by far the most popular show I ever did in 9 years of broadcasting/webcasting. It was recorded at Allston-Brighton Free Radio, where the show originated for nearly 5 years although it's also been available as a webcast since mid-'03. One thing I notice, when playing some of it back, is how goddamned fast I talked on the air back then. Not that I sound any better now but at least the tempo is slower. Must be my increasing age!

There are two files to download and it's been encoded at 192 kbps so it'll sound quite a bit better than the regular webcast. I did a show marking the 5th anniversary of his death this week and there's some overlap but also some songs that have come out since his death.

Enjoy!
