Sonic Café, that’s Lenny Kravitz a covering Smokey Robinson and the Miracles released back in 1965 launching us into another mix of cover tunes so great, they’re scary. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 361. This time the Sonic Café presents a bunch cover tunes that we really like. We’ve got Scary Pockets with a funk cover of the Bee Gees Stayin’ Alive, Robert Palmer covering Little Feat, Billy Gibbons covering a bluesman Big Joe Williams tune from way back in 1935, Phish covering the Talking Heads, Placebo covering Kate Bush, and the list goes on. Also comedian Tim Walkoe steps up to the mic to tell us why there is nothing worse than watching Day Time television. All that plus toss in a few quick comedic observations from Mark Normand, Robert Mac and Jim Gaffigan. All straight ahead as the Sonic Café discovers why daytime television is the worst in another mix of cover tunes so great they’re scary, from that little radio café shrouded in the misty fog out here in the great Pacific Northwest.

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 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.

An episode is released each Friday. 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 (
