Sonic Café. Hey welcome, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode one hundred and ten. This time the Sonic Cafe presents another Twilight Zone Classic. We’ll feature Judgment Night, which aired originally in 1959. We like it because it explores what happens when the hunter becomes the hunted. Set in 1942, it features ruthless U-Boat captain Carl Lanser. A guy who’s perfectly OK with sending a defenseless British freighter to the bottom of the frigid north Atlantic, without the slightest thought about the crew or passengers. But you know Karma can be hell, and since we’re in the Twilight Zone, Captain Lanser soon finds himself on the deck of that same freighter… but this time the U-Boat is hunting him. All this maritime action is wrapped in an eclectic music mix pulled from over thirty years Listen for Pete Townsend, The Tubes, Kings Of Leon, ZZ Top and many more. So stow your bags, grab a deck chair and get ready for cast off as we dive into another Twilight Zone Classic, here at the little café on the coast that’s always ready to set sail… 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.
