Yep, one hundred and a whole lot more. Welcome to episode 100 of the Sonic Café, I’m your host Scott Clark and I’m really glad you could join as we embark on our next hundred episodes. How about that? This time the Sonic Café presents a music mix that pulls from over 35 years. Listen for cuts from Off Broadway, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, Neko Case, Yes, Morphine and more. Plus great jazz from Charlie Hunter’s 2001 Analog Playground release. Then still later listen for the late great George Carlin’s prolific prediction of how a simple water main break in Los Angeles will finally bring our world to a cataclysmic end and send every ones Uncle Dave’s to heaven in the process. Of course we don’t know exactly when this will happen … but at least now we know how. And finally a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor, listen for a word from Artificial Orange Juice… with genuine pulp like particles added. Yum! All that and of course more, straight ahead from that little café in the beautiful Pacific Northwest… 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.

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 (
