Sonic Overload 9/12/11

A longer-than-usual show this week, recorded one day after the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. I don’t think I need to go into any great detail in this space because the audio clips and many of the songs on the show tell the story and the show runs almost an extra quarter hour because I wanted to get everything on there. A tragedy in so many ways—the lives lost, the physical and emotional toll on the survivors, their families and the selfless, courageous first responders. The subsequent military actions overseas were also tragic, with the deaths of not only US troops but tens or perhaps hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq. And, of course, the fear and paranoia that grips this country, along with the attack on civil liberties. In some ways, you wonder if the terrorists actually won, given what’s happened in the US over the past decade.

This week’s show is dedicated to the memory of my friend Jane Simpkin, who was on the second plane that flew into the World Trade Center. Rest in peace...
