Hungry like the wolf? Well then you’ve come to the right place, because this time the Sonic Café is broadcasting from your grocery store. Yeah that’s right. Welcome to episode 94… and I’m your host Scott Clark. From the hunting and gathering days to today’s supermarket spree, where the shopping carts are like bumper cars, and almost everything is microwave ready… obtaining, preparing and consuming copious amounts of groceries has always been a big part of our daily lives. To help you find everything you need today, the Sonic Café is joined by comedians Andy Hendrickson, and his Mom in the produce department, Patten Oswalt over in frozen foods, Forrest Shaw sampling the organic grapes, and Jerry Seinfeld, who’s just trying to find his way to the parking lot with a fresh gallon of milk. Along with that we’ve lined up an unconventional Muzak mix covering 53 years, including tunes from John Mellencamp, The Newbeats, BB King, Hurray for the Riff Raff and more. Plus Home Cookin’… some classic jazz from Horace Silver. All presented to make your shopping experience more enjoyable… so grab a cart and join us, as we take over your grocery store this time at 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.

The Sonic Cafe has a Facebook page ( where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. The Sonic Café can also be streamed from MixCloud (

Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (
