Sonic Café, that’s Elvis Costello with Radio, Radio, which is what we do here. Welcome I’m your host Scott Clark and we’re going where this radio program has never gone before, because this is episode 365! Wow! So you can now listen to a Sonic Café episode daily and it would take a year to hear them all! It also means that we’ve been broadcasting the Sonic Café for over 7 years now, which is something that could never have happened without your. Thanks for and thanks this radio station too. So this time the Sonic Café presents music pulled from the last 52 years and mixed together with a bunch of Star Trek pop culture and comedy clips to warp us through the hour. Listen for, Alice Merton, Donald Fagen, 30 Seconds To Mars, of course, Tom Waits, Kings of Leon and more. We’ll also warp back to 1972 in the Sonic Café time machine. Listen for the Long Distance Runaround. Yes music after the bottom of the hour. Of and we’ll also play a recording of that time Captain Jean Luc Picard placed an order at the McDonald’s drive, spoiler alert, it didn’t go so well. So all that and more as the Sonic Café goes where this radio program has never gone before, here’s bluesman Albert Collins 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 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 (
