Sonic Café… the show that never ends, welcome to episode 46, I’m your host Scott Clark. This time our music mix is pulled from the last 43 years. Listen for tunes from Tonic, Flash and the Pan, Johnny Marr and the Healers, Zero 7 and more. Plus All Things Considered a jazz classic from the late great tenor man Joe Henderson. Then hilarious stand up comedy from Brian Regan... Listen as Brian gives us his take on men in sports… from the great outdoors to hardwood floors… And finally listen for the way we handle unwanted telemarketing calls in a little thing we call, Long Island Energy. Wow. Eclectic music, comedy and pop culture all straight ahead from that little café on the coast. We’re the Sonic Café.

The Sonic Cafe features an intelligent, eclectic mix of music, comedy and pop culture showcasing 30 to 60 years of content within each episode.

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves music, comedy and pop culture rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. All announcer voiceovers are presented over the background noise of a busy cafe with references made to the café environment to create a theatre of the mind experience for listeners.

The program actually does originate 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.

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.

Original syndication date was 7/22/2016. At that time 31 shows had already been produced (over six months of content) with new episodes produced weekly. A new episode is released each week. You can confidently add The Sonic Cafe to your schedule knowing that a backlog of shows is already produced awaiting weekly release.
