Sonic Café, with the Lenny Kravitz cover of the Jimi Hendrix psychedelic rock classic Purple Haze, so ahh far out huh? Hey I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 224. This time the Sonic Café has some fun with the ever-changing perceptions around drugs and alcohol in today’s world. Representing drugs are good; listen for comedian, social critic and satirist Bill Hicks, captured live in 1989. Bill was way ahead of his time, but left too early, passing on to that big stage in the sky in 1994. But his impact lives on with Rolling Stone recently ranking him number 13 on its’ list of the 50 best comedians of all time, so yeah. Then representing drugs are bad, the Sonic Café presents an enlightening lecture from Southparks school counselor Mr. Mackey, Mmkay? These wildly divergent opinions are wrapped in a music mix conjured up from like 80 years. Wow, just wow. Listen for Steely Dan, All Time Low, Chick Webb & His Orchestra, Nine Inch Nails, john Lennon, Ike & Tina Turner and of course many more. Ohhh and a big Sonic Café welcome to our latest sponsor. Toilet Cleaner, the hot new legal high that takes you to places you never imagined, and ahh leaves you forever changed. Toilet cleaner. It’s time to smoke a real bowl. Ahh all that and more this time from that 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 (
