Sonic Overload 1/3/11

Happy New Year to ‘ya—welcome to first Sonic Overload for 2011. On time, finished early in fact and under the influence of some rather potent coffee. The caffeine buzz or rush or whatever you want to call it lasted most of the day. I’m still feeling the after-effects, in fact, although there didn’t seem to be any sort of “crash.”

I mention this on the show but when I played “Transmission” by Joy Division, I checked my database to see when it was last played. It was January 3, 2005, six years to the day. That also happens to be the day I started recording this show at home, following the closing of Allston-Brighton Free Radio. A completely unintentional coincidence. That day, the  recording set-up was incomplete compared to what I have now. If memory serves me correctly, I had one turntable and I can’t remember if I had the CD mixer yet but I did complete the set-up within a few weeks and it’s been that way ever since. It still boggles my mind that I’m able to record this show in my house and people all over the world can listen to it.

The holidays are over, it’s back to real life or whatever it’s called. Hopefully, that signals the end of those infernal holiday commercials that lasted straight into this past weekend and I’m wondering if they’re FINALLY going to disappear. And, hopefully, this show and subsequent installments will at least partially help you get through the day/week. If not, try some strong coffee. Did the trick here...
