Sonic Café rockin’ with rocket fuel! Hey, welcome to the show, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 185. This time the Sonic Café presents a music mix pulled from 47 years. We’ve got your old school, with the Allman Brothers and we’ve got your new school, with a cut from Sheer Mag, and then a whole bunch in between with music from the Boom Boom Satellites, All Time Low, Barenaked Ladies, Jade Warrior and of course many more. Then later the Sonic Café helps you live a better life with another in our occasional series of Matthew Mcconaughey moments. We’ll also hear from comedian Dwayne Perkins with some interesting observations about You Tube and the state of today’s big corporate radio. And speaking of monopolistic media, the Sonic Café would like to extend a hearty handshake to our newest sponsor, your local Internet and cable provider. You don’t like ‘em, but you know there’s nothing you can do about it. All that and more as we present another distinctively independent hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from that little café in the breathtaking Pacific northwest, 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 (
