Sonic Café that’s ZZ Top with I thank you… and I do thank you for stopping by our little cafe. I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 214. This time the Sonic Café stops by the grocery store to pick-up a few things, cause you know we all gotta eat, and walks right into the middle of a standoff in the check out line at Trader Joe’s. Comedian Gary Gulman has the blow-by- blow details. Then later comedian Sebastian Maniscalco stops by to Talk about declining customer service at his grocery store. And if all of this food talk makes you hungry, don’t worry, because we’ve lined up a tasty music mix that will take your mind off the hunger pains. Pulled from 44 years, listen for Matchbox Twenty, Dukes of the Stratosphere, Brian Eno, Joe Jackson, King Crimson, Fast Eddie Clark, the Supreme Beings of Leisure and many more. Oh and before I forget, a supermarket sized welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from The Sustenance Warehouse. The Sustenance Warehouse, shop from us or starve. All that and some other neat stuff too as the Sonic Café goes grocery shopping, this time from our little café on the big blue 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 (
