Sonic Café that’s Hot Chip covering Transmission the 1979 Joy Division tune, so hey welcome to another hour of our radio transmission from the Sonic Café. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 204. This time the Sonic Café travels into the world of Jay Ward’s Fractured Fairytales as we present the tale of the three little pigs. Now there’s no huffing and puffing in this version, and our wolf isn’t big, nor bad. In fact his name is Hank and like the original tale Hank doesn’t get exactly what he’s expecting, but sure gets what’s coming to him. So yah, our tale is wrapped in a music mix pulled from just about 50 years. Listen for Genesis, the Bombay Bicycle Club, Franz Ferdinand, Flunk, World Party The Jayhawks and of course many more as we bring you another hour of intelligent, eclectic radio that thumbs it’s nose at big corporate radio by bringing you a radio transmission where the music really matters. 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 (
