Yeah Use Me, until you’ve used me up. That’s the music of Bill Withers from 1972 on the Sonic Cafe. Hey welcome to the program. I’m your host Scott Clark and this episode 123. This time the Sonic Café presents the Love Show, where we explore love, the most elusive of human emotions, and the one we search for and try to hang on to the most. You’ve got your new love, you’ve got your bad love… and you’ve got your love that is just over baby. Listen for a love struck music mix spanning 42 years. We’ll hear tunes from Eric Clapton, Liquid Soul, John Lee Hooker with Bonnie Raitt, Walter Trout, the Talking Heads, Bad Suns, the Blue Oyster Cult and many more. Plus the Sonic Café presents first date perspectives from a woman’s and a man’s point of view. Listen for comedians Illiza Shlesinger and KT Tatara. All this time on the Love Show… from that little café in the Pacific Northwest that brings you intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture that’s loveable in any language. We’re the Sonic Café.

The Sonic Cafe features an intelligent, eclectic mix of music, comedy and pop culture showcasing 30 to 60 years of content within each episode.

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves music, comedy and pop culture rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. All announcer voiceovers are presented over the background noise of a busy cafe with references made to the café environment to create a theatre of the mind experience for listeners.

The program actually does originate from KYAQ radio located on the Oregon coast in the Pacific Northwest, so the imagery is not a huge stretch.

Each program is 58:00 minutes in length leaving room for station ID, promos and PSAs. Each episode is .mp3 encoded at a constant rate of 256kbps and ready for broadcast.

All episodes are evergreen; never focusing on time of year, weather, month, holidays, events etc. so each show is timeless. All music is presented in a no repeat format. Once a song airs in an episode it never airs again. Episodes may be downloaded and grouped together to quickly create program blocks of two, three, four or more hours in length.

Original syndication date was 7/22/2016. At that time 31 shows had already been produced (over six months of content) with new episodes produced weekly. A new episode is released each week. You can confidently add The Sonic Cafe to your schedule knowing that a backlog of shows is already produced awaiting weekly release.

The Sonic Cafe has a Facebook page ( where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. The Sonic Café can also be streamed from MixCloud (
