Sonic Café, yes they are watching you, that’s the Police from 1983’s Synchronicity album release. Hey, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 208, which, if my arithmetic is correct, means our little radio café has been open four years now, so ahh happy anniversary to us. Yeah, so this time the Sonic Café brings you another episode of Spy GUYZ, and this time it’s your government that’s doing the prying and spying. With your right to privacy quickly vanishing into the rear view mirror, the Sonic Café shares the top 10 ways somebody is probably watching you right now, courtesy of the Infographics Show. Then listen for comedian Ron Funches, for some strange reason Ron thinks the government may be lying to us. Then later British comedian Rhys James fears his laptop just might be spying on him. Wow. Just Wow. All this conspiracy and paranoia wrapped in a music mix from 31 years. Listen for Hall & Oates, Elvind Aarset, Black Eyed Peas, Beck, Massive Attack and of course more, as we celebrate our fourth anniversary with an episode of Spy GUYZ from that little café in the Pacific Northwest where even though our therapist says it’s crazy talk, we know somebody is watching us, ahh right now, 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 (
