Sonic Café, Cheap Trick music there from 2016’s Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello album release. So ahh welcome, I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 320. So ahh here we go again. This time the Sonic Café spins up a mix pulled from just the last 12 years, so a tighter mix than we usually present but we feel these tunes all gel together. Listen for Lenny Kravits, Future Islands, The Killers, Car Seat Headrest, best band name ever, right? Anyway near the bottom of the hour we’ll spin up their hate tune for Hollywood, they’re, like really angry for some reason. Plus music from Foster the People, Alabama Shakes, Saint Motel and more. Also comedian Casey Peruski steps up to the mic to explain why eating healthy just takes the fun out of everything. Pizza or steamed broccoli? we know it’s a tough choice, right? So all that and more this time from that little radio café way out here in the Pacific northwest, where ahh we all eat our tofu and goji berries, and dog gone it we like it. Here’s Lust For Life from the Girls, 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 (
