Sonic Café with the convenience of a Velcro fly, that’s the music of ZZ Top. So how you doin? Welcome to another hour of intelligent, eclectic music comedy and pop culture. It’s a thing we call the Sonic Café. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 317. This time the Sonic Café presents a more music hour, where we tell you we’re going to play more music and then we do it. Then later we tell you that we’re gonna play more music, and then we do it again pretty clever right? So yeah there’s that. Our mix was pulled from 42 years and includes quite a few great oldies from the likes of the Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, blues from Albert Collins, plus 4 Non Blondes and more. We’ve even tossed in a great jazz tune called the Taxidermist from Nostalgia 77, which we’ll spin up around the bottom of the hour. All that plus it’s time we had an intervention here at the Sonic Café and comedian Ian Edwards is here to ahh facilitate it for us. So kick back and enjoy another more music hour from that little radio café in the Pacific northwest here’s the Black Crowes, and we’re the Sonic Café.

About the Producer:

Scott Clark has always had a lot of music in his life. Growing up outside of Chicago, he was mesmerized early on by the radio of the sixties and seventies and began collecting records at a very early age. From 45’s and LP’s to cassettes and CD’s and now digital… he really never stopped. Today everything in his library is digitized because he got sick of lugging all that stuff around.

The concept for the Sonic Café is to deliver the high production values and feel of the radio he grew up listening to. But unlike the tight, repetitious playlists of those commercial stations, feature a massive range of artists, genres and tunes. The whole idea is to package it in an eclectic, engaging, no repeat format that brings both new and old together in a unique, entertaining, and most importantly fun and fast paced way. There’s really nothing on the radio today, or in the past, that compares with it.

About the Sonic Café:

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves up eclectic, intelligent music, comedy and pop culture. The program originates 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.

An episode is released each week. 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.

The Sonic Cafe has a Facebook page ( where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (
