Sonic Café, from 1988 that’s Waiting For A Star To Fall, so what’s up? I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 171. This time the Sonic Café brings you songs about the Sun, the Moon and the Stars. Yes Virginia there is still some truth in advertising. We’ve pulled our eclectic music mix from 42 years with tunes from Weezer, Echo and the Bunnymen, Cream, The Animals, REM and many more. We’ll also check in with Seattle comedian Drew Barth, who’s always amazed at how the sun takes people by surprise when it makes an occasional appearance in Seattle. Oh and a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from Salivex. Salivex the ultimate cure for dry mouth. Take Salivex and spit again. All that and more as we bring you songs about the Sun, the Moon and the Stars this time from that little café that sits high atop a cliff watching the Sun set on the big blue Pacific, we’re the Sonic Café.

About the Producer:

Scott Clark has always had a lot of music in his life. Growing up outside of Chicago, he was mesmerized early on by the radio of the sixties and seventies and began collecting records at a very early age. From 45’s and LP’s to cassettes and CD’s and now digital… he really never stopped. Today everything in his library is digitized because he got sick of lugging all that stuff around.

The concept for the Sonic Café is to deliver the high production values and feel of the radio he grew up listening to. But unlike the tight, repetitious playlists of those commercial stations, feature a massive range of artists, genres and tunes. The whole idea is to package it in an eclectic, engaging, no repeat format that brings both new and old together in a unique, entertaining, and most importantly fun and fast paced way. There’s really nothing on the radio today, or in the past, that compares with it.

About the Sonic Café:

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves up eclectic, intelligent music, comedy and pop culture. The program originates 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.

An episode is released each Friday. 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.

The Sonic Cafe has a Facebook page ( where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (
