Sonic Café. Killing Strangers, Marilyn Manson from 2015, which is a fitting way to launch into another episode of Spy Guys on the Sonic Café. I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 247. Person of Interest, a television series aired on CBS for five years; is regarded as one of the best science fiction tales ever broadcast. It’s the post 911 story of reclusive billionaire and computer genius Harold Finch, who builds the government, a secret all knowing artificial intelligence called the machine, which spies on us every hour of every day. It’s also the story of John Reese, a former CIA operative and all around badass. Ahem. Seriously John Reese could show James Bond a thing or two. Anyway Finch and Reese join forces with the Machine to take down bad guys. Listen for excerpts that clearly demonstrate how John Reese takes care of business, baby. Mixed in is a fitting batch of tunes selected from 45 years including Billie Ellish with No Time To Die, the latest James Bond theme, plus Pink Floyd, the X Ambassadors, Patterson Hood, Marijn Korff de Gidits and more. All straight as we bring you John Reese, Person of Interest on Spy Guys, from our super secret clandestine location in the foggy, mysterious, Pacific Northwest 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 (
