Sonic Overload 4/20/10

No shortage of topical material this week—from the “tea party” rallies, including one in Boston with Sarah Palin. Then there’s the death of former LA police chief Daryl Gates and that’s followed by an acknowledgement of the anniversary of the Columbine shootings. And in the segment before that one, I talk about the 15th anniversary of the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

Yeah, I push the envelope a bit this week by playing a band called the McVeighs, a song that’s seemingly pro-school shooter and the infamous “Cop Killer” by Body Count. Make that pushing the envelope more than a bit. Add to that the fact I play a song by Carnivore due to the fact that Peter Steele from Carnivore (and Type-O Negative, of course) passed away last week. Carnivore’s repertoire had some rather sketchy lyrics but, then again, so did Type O. Carnivore were a bit more brazen, perhaps.

Gratuitous provocation? It might seem that way to some listeners, I suppose. But I’d like to think there’s always provocative material on this show or I’m not doing my job!
