Sonic Overload 12/23/13

And, here it is, the Sonic Overload holiday show—songs you won’t hear in the mall or shopping center or a lot of other holiday shows, even the punk ones. No sappiness, no saccharine but it’ll hopefully put a smile on your face or even generate a few hearty guffaws. And if you don’t like any holiday music, then you can be grateful it’ll be another year until you have to hear any of this shit again.

Next week—the Best of 2013 show. Happy Holidays...

Time for one of my favorite shows of the year—the all-covers one and I’ve got a lot of new material this year. I’ve been keeping a running list when I hear a new cover version that would be good for the show. Yes, I put effort into this shit! As always, I didn’t use any tracks from “tribute albums” or all-covers albums. Those occasionally yield something worthwhile but not that often so I stick with doing it this way. Hope you enjoy it...

Sonic Overload 11/18/13

November 22nd, 1963—the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. You’ll find no discussion of conspiracy theories here although I don’t think it’s beyond the realm of possibility. Anyway, this week marks the 50th anniversary of that infamous day and I mark it with some appropriate (inappropriate? Take your pick) music for the occasion.

I forgot to mention it on the show but next week will be a special Sonic Overload, my annual all-covers show. I’ve got a lot of new selections this year so you’ll definitely want to check it out. I usually do it the Monday after Thanksgiving but since it’s coming so late this year, I’m doing it a bit early.
