Sonic Overload 6/16/14

The spirit or specter or ghost or what-have-you of legendary radio personality Casey Kasem hovers over this week’s Sonic Overload, with a few tributes sprinkled throughout the show. Casey died last week at the age of 82. Sure, American Top 40 was corny as hell and, as has been pointed out in other articles, Casey wasn’t exactly a passionate rock ‘n roll fan. But, amusingly, he had quite a potty mouth when he didn’t think the tape was running, as you’ll hear at the outset of the show. I did play Negativland’s “U2” on the all-covers show last fall, which includes some of Casey’s infamous outtakes mashed up with a rather warped version of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” I also end the show with  a song I heard on his show for the first time, believe it or not—not a track you’d expect...

So, as Casey always said, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. Or something like that...

Sonic Overload 6/9/14

It’s now been over ten years since the subject of so many great 80s punk and hardcore bands shuffled off this mortal coil. I’m referring to Ronald Reagan, of course. I did a “tribute” to him on the Stench Radio show last week and it continues this week, as well. The original “tribute” in 2004 remains one of the most popular Sonic Overload shows I ever did. Maybe I’ll re-post it at some point.

Sonic Overload 6/2/14

I begin and end the show with adolescent touchstones—I suppose you could say that, anyway. The first song is a tribute to Ann B. Davis, who played Alice on the Brady Bunch and passed away over the weekend. That show went off the air in 1974 (although it lived on in reruns and there were the various reunion shows/movies). And that was also the year that Brownsville Station’s “Smokin’ In The Boys Room” was a big hit on Boston rock radio during the spring.  I was in the 8th grade and there were mini-courses we took towards the end of the year (damned if I can remember the one I took) and we’d play the radio in the classroom. That was one of the songs I’d always her. 40 years ago... as I always say, yikes!

Memorial Day already, so I play the perennial songs about the costs of warfare. And when I saw the news reports of President Obama’s surprise visit to the troops in Afghanistan, it got me thinking that he shouldn’t have to be taking those trips because, well over 5 years into his administration, one would think the troops should already be home.

Department of corrections—I said Special Duties did “Dead Soldier.” It’s by Special Forces and is noted as such on the playlist.
