Sonic Overload 7/16/12

We’re in the midst of a heat wave although today wasn’t quite as bad—I kept the door open and the fan running and that kept it relatively comfortable. I sometimes wonder if my neighbors ever catch a glimpse of what I’m doing or know what even goes on in here. You all know exactly what I’m doing--evil plotting, an ongoing subversion of people’s psyches through the devious tool of punk rock. Nah, I’m not that clever.

I revisit my teenage years a bit, once again, with a trio of 70s era songs, one of them a last-minute addition—Deep Purple’s “Fireball,” played in memory of their longtime keyboard player Jon Lord, who I found out had passed away just before I started recording the show. I’d also like to dedicate this week’s show, once again, in memory of Jeff “Jef Leppard” Davis, who played guitar in Voetsek and was also in STFU, who are played this week. He was killed in a motorcycle accident last month and his wife Nikki was badly injured.

Two hours and thirteen minutes, this week. Will I hit the 2 ¼ hour mark next week? You’ll just have to listen to find out...
