Sonic café, Black Flamingo, that’s The Wombats from 2018. So welcome to our little radio café on the Oregon coast, I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 353. With the rise of Tik Tok, Twitter and the like our attention spans just keep getting shorter. We want to be entertained, but please get to the punch line quicker. Well this time the Sonic Café does that as we present a whole batch of quick comedic take in a thing we’re calling Comedy Shorts. Listen for Robert Mac, Ralph Barbossa, Jim Gaffigan and many more. Our music mix pulled from the last 53 years and includes tunes from Todd Rundgren featuring the amazing Bettye LaVette, Alice Merton, Robert Plant, Primus, Glass Animals, Train and more. Just past the bottom of the hour we’ll spin up Persuasion, a great Santana track from 1969. So grab a seat and come along for the ride as the Sonic Café get’s to the punch line quickly with Comedy Shorts.

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 (
