Sonic Café, that’s the music of the Heimatdamisch, a German polka band with a really cool cover of the Guns n’ Roses tune Sweet Child of Mine. So ahh how you doin’? I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 212. This time, if you have not already guessed, the Sonic Café roles through another mix of cover tunes so great they’re scary. We’ll hear from Lake Street Dive, DiVinyls, Weezer, Son of Dave, Placebo and many more, as they cover songs from the last 40 years. Then latter we’ll check in with comedian Robert Mac, with the closest thing you’ll ever hear to a weather forecast at the Sonic Café. And finally a germ free welcome to our latest sponsor, listen for a word from Pontious Advanced Hand Sanitizer. Pontious, it’s time to sanitize everything! All that along with some other neat stuff too, as we roll into another hour of cover tunes so great they’re scary, from that little café in the Pacific Northwest that features music, comedy and pop culture that’s distinctly anti, big corporate, radio. 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 (
