Sonic Café, with the B-52’s, a truly underrated band, so how the heck you doin’ ? Welcome to another slightly twisted hour of eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from the Sonic Café. I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 240. This time the Sonic Café presents the comedic ramblings of the late, great Mitch Hedberg. Mitch left us in 2005 at the age of 37. It seems like the great ones always flash out too soon. During his short, but brilliant career, his surreal brand of short one-liners and absurd non-sequiturs earned him a huge almost cult like following, with many declaring that Mitch was destined to be the next Jerry Seinfeld. To celebrate his quirky brand of humor the Sonic Café has pulled together an anthology of his stand-up performances and sprinkled them liberally throughout the show, which also includes a great mix of tunes from the last 23 years. Listen for DJ Shadow, the Killers, OMFO, Tom Petty, Republica, Arctic Monkeys and more, this time as the Sonic Café presents the miscellaneous ramblings of the late, great Mitch Hedberg from that little café on the coast. A place where the closer you listen, the better we sound. 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 (
