Sonic Café… that’s the music of Moon Hooch, so ahh welcome, I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 211. This time the Sonic Café cranks it up to 1.21 gigawatts, which is like way powerful. So, to be safe, we ask that you practice a couple of safe listening techniques during this broadcast. First and foremost, do not touch your radio dial, because at 1.21 gigawatts, voltage can arc through your radio at any moment, and with this much power… well let’s just say we wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to you. And second, maintain a safe distance from your radio… just in case the whole thing blows up. Take these simple precautions, and we’ll all have a good time. OK? So yeah, we’ve got a high-voltage music mix lined up from like the last half-century. Listen for AC/DC, Eddie Grant, Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band, Tinariwen, the Wild Bunch and many more. Then later comedian Chris Porter stops by to tell us about his Dad, a wonderful father, who also just happens to be a very bad electrician. All that and of course more, this time, as we try to convince you, in every way imaginable, that we are the most powerful radio program on planet Earth, broadcasting at ahh 1.21 gigawatts, 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 (
