Sonic Café, pulled from their 1997 So Much For The Afterglow album release, that’s music from Everclear. So hey what is up? Thanks for stopping by, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 221. Bad Dad Jokes. Every dad has a bunch of them. They make you laugh and cringe at the same time. They’ve really always been around, but it took the Internet to make them a thing. Dad Jokes got it’s first listing in the Urban Dictionary in 2003, and today has blown up into this pop culture thing you’ll find all over the web. Well to celebrate the rise of Bad Dad Jokes the Sonic Café brings you our first ever Bad Dad Joke-Off. During the show we’ll check in on the competition that pits one dad against another, they mercilessly pepper each other with every Bad Dad Joke possible, until one Dad laughs. When you laugh, you lose! Sounds exciting, right? Anyway, our high intensity competition is wrapped in a fatherly music mix pulled from 47 years. Listen for Elton John, Eric Clapton, Cat Stevens, Gnarls Barkley, the Fantastic Plastic Machine and many more as we bring you our first ever, Bad Dad Joke-Off from that little café on the coast, that brings you a weekly does of intelligent, eclectic radio that’s fun. 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 (
