Sonic Café, that’s Lou Gramm from 1987 with Midnight Blue, the tune music reviewers have agreed was the last great single of the album-rock era. So ahh here we go again, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 373. This time the Sonic Café features music pulled from 49 years. Listen for Broadcast, Depeche Mode, Heartless Bastards, Future Islands, Steve Hackett and the late, great John Wetton, and also, Crosby, Still, Nash and Young from way back in 1968 and of course more. Also comedian Alex Velluto will stand up for himself and others, whose identities just aren’t worth stealing. So there’s that. Finally the Sonic Café brings you another installment of News You Can’t Use, from the Onion News Network, we’ll hear a touching story from Folsom, California about the emanate failure of the Folsom dam. It seems state legislators could not agree on funding a fix for the dam, but instead approved money to erect a monument to all of the residents who will die when the dam eventually fails, ahh another story of your tax dollars at work. All that and more from that little radio café way out here in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s David Gilmour, 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 (
