Sonic Café, the time has come for you my friend, to all this ugliness we must put an end… lyrics from Golden Country, REO Speedwagon music from 1972. Another example of the more things change, the more they stay the same. So ahh hey, I’m Scott Clark, welcome to episode 237. This time the Sonic Café brings you all that glitters is gold, as we present King Midas, another Fractured Fairytale from Jay Ward’s classic Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon series. We’ll compliment our fractured fairytale with an eclectic mix of music that ahh has the Midas Touch. Pulled from 36 years or so listen for Les Dudek, the Supreme Beings of Leisure, Natalie Merchant, Tina Turner with the James Bond theme from Goldeneye, the Beatles and of course many more. Heck we’ll even revive the gold standard with Ken Nordine from his 1966 Colors album. Ohh and before we forget, a gold bar sized welcome to our latest sponsor, listen for a word from Fleeca Bank. Fleeca, it’s time to start paying for everything. All that and more as we bring you the Midas touch, this time from that little café on the coast looking over the big blue Pacific, we’re the Sonic Café reliving those Golden years, here’s David Bowie.

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 (
