Sonic Café. You’ve been Thunderstruck, that’s AC/DC captured in the wild. Hey, welcome I’m Scott Clark, we’ve got a huge crowd in attendance here at the café, as we bring you episode 201. This time the Sonic Café is Alive with a mix of live concert recordings that we really like. Pulled from over thirty years, we’ve got some classic rockers, blues, southern rock, alternative and indie cuts. Listen for the Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, Neil Young, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Cheap Trick and many more. It’s hard not to get caught up in the energy and excitement you get from listening to great music, captured live with a few thousand of your closest friends. So crank up the volume, jump out of your seat, and go friggin’ crazy along with the rest of us as the Sonic Café presents It’s Alive! Great bands, powerful music, captured alive at the amphitheater here at the Sonic Café. Yeah that’s right, cause though it may look small from the outside, our little café has seating for thousands.

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 (
