Sonic Café, I gotta a feeling that was the Black Eyed Peas and you know I was right. I’m Scott Clark, welcome to episode 213. Millennials, born between 1981 and 2000, and stereotyped as self absorbed, obsessed with selfies, technology and social media, and untrusting of their Baby Boomer parents. Which sounds very similar to just about any proceeding generation to us, accept for the social media part. The oldest millennial is now on the edge of 40, so technically they’re no longer the youngsters, because generation Z, or whatever they’re called, is hot on their heels. So maybe everyone should welcome them to the establishment and quit picking on them… well maybe not quite yet, because this time the Sonic Café presents something about millennials, the stereotypes, and tunes they rocked out to as kids. Listen for Lady Gaga, Cold Play, Maroon 5, Gwen Stefani and many more. We’ll also listen in on an actual millennial job interview, then check in with comedian and English major Michael Palascak to see how his job search is going, and finally, in our OK Boomer segment, comedian Orny Adams, will tell us what it was like back in the day. All that and probably more as we present something about millennials, this time from that little café on the breathtaking Pacific coast, 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 (
