Sonic Café with music from Dope Lemon, hey welcome I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 207. This time the Sonic Café features some of our favorite alternative and indie rock bands. And unlike most Sonic Café episodes that feature artists from 40 years or so, most of this mix is pulled from the last five years or so with just one outlier, from the late Canadian artist Leonard Cohen. So ahh, listen for Dinosaur Jr., New Order, TV On The Radio, Twenty One Pilots, Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Eat World and of course more. Then later the Sonic Café brings you stand-up comedy. Listen for Saturday Night Lives’ Colin Jost with some interesting observations about New Yorkers and living in New York. Oh and prairie sized welcome to our latest sponsor. Listen for a message from the Corn Syrup Producers of America who stress how important it is to have as much high fructose corn syrup in your daily diet as possible. All that and some other neat stuff too just ahead from our little café overlooking the big blue Pacific ocean, 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 (
