Welcome to another Twilight Zone Classic here at the Sonic Café. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode one-hundred-and-one. This time the Sonic Cafe takes you on a flight through space and time as we present The Odyssey of Flight 33, which originally aired in 1961. It’s really a modern day version of the 17th century Flying Dutchman myth… about a legendary ghost ship doomed to sail the seas forever in search of home. Our in-flight entertainment includes a music mix pulled from 50 years including tunes from Blue Six, The Amboy Dukes, Jon Anderson, Thomas Dolby, The Peddlers and more… plus classic jazz from Dexter Gordon’s 1964 One Flight Up release. So fasten your seatbelt, make sure your seat back is upright, your carry on bag is stowed and your digital devices are set on airplane mode, and prepare for take-off as we present The Odyssey of Flight 33 on another Twilight Zone Classic, here at the little café located right next to the runway to oblivion, on the big blue Pacific 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.
