Sonic Café, Dysfunctional, that’s Demolition 23. So ahh welcome to our mildly dysfunctional radio café, I'm Scott Clark and this is episode 385. This time the Sonic Café asks the question, is the glass half full, or half empty? Sometimes it can be both. Comedian Brian McKim is here to explain. Our eclectic music mix is pulled from 52 years and includes, none of us are free, a great Ray Charles & Eric Clapton collaboration. Also Radiohead, Oasis, Sly & The Family Stone, The Woggles, The Mother Truckers and more, including the Sonic Café’s first ever Two-for-Two feature, it’s a new thing we really like, this time we’ll spin The Animals original 1965 classic We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place, followed by a 2012 cover from the Romantics. Cool stuff! And finally, like everyone, we’ve embraced Artificial Intelligence here at the café. What could possibly go wrong, right? Well nothing, because we’ve got Starship Captain James T. Kirk on our side, he possesses the reasoning ability to force any AI to destroy itself. So yeah we’re boldly going into the future. So ahh let’s Take It Away, here’s Paul McCartney 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 (facebook.com/SonicCafeRadio) where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (SonicCafeRadio@gmail.com)
