Sonic Café with 50 ways to leave your lover, that’s Paul Simon from 1973. So what’s up? I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 210. If love songs are the number one subject for songwriters, then break up songs must come in a very close second, at least that’s what we think. So this time the Sonic Café brings you a mix of the Internet’s favorite break up songs, along with a few of our own. Pulled from 47 years of broken romances our mix includes tunes from Big Brother & the Holding Company, Pat Benatar, Sinead O’Connor, Amy Winehouse and even the king himself… Elvis Presley. Then comedian Taylor Tomlinson stops by to share her recent break up story, along with more comedic break-up thoughts from Chris Potter and Dylan Moran, all straight ahead as the Sonic Café presents break up songs, this time in another hour of intelligent, eclectic music comedy and pop culture from our little café on the Pacific coast with the Greg Kihn Band. 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 (
