Sonic Café, Alice in Chains music from 1992, so welcome to another hour of head phone friendly music, comedy and pop culture, I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 219. The Seattle sound, more commonly know as the grunge, originated here in the Pacific Northwest in the late 80’s and became one of the most powerful forces shaping the music of the 90’s. Though grunge may just be some marketing term, the music was an authentic movement to revive the rebellious roots, of punk and rock n’ roll. This time Sonic Café presents the ghettos of Seattle. Listen for Billy Anderson, a Seattle transplant from Georgia, as he shares his observations of the emerald city in a music mix that celebrates many of the artists whose names became synonymous with the grunge movement, including Soundgarden, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and of course many more, as we pay a visit to the ghettos of Seattle this time from that little café on the coast in ahh the grungy Pacific northwest, where we all wear flannel, and drink craft brew from our artisanal beer mugs, ahem 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 (
