Sonic Café, welcome to the jazz club where the coolest cats around blow the best mess of music ever… yeah man. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 206. This time the Sonic Café drops into the world of jazz. A music and a lifestyle that only comes out to at night. Listen for music from Le D, Bobby Sanabria, Thelonious Monk, a great scat number from Anita O’Day, even sax man Stephen Riley covering I’m an Old Cowhand. Plus of course many more. Then listen for the jazz language as defined by Jeff Goldblum. And finally a big Sonic Café welcome to The Beatniks, a hip movie that’s coming to a theatre late some night, in a parallel universe somewhere. All that and some other hip stuff too straight ahead in another hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from our jazz club, where the hippest cats only come out at night to hear the jazz go down. 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 (
