Sonic Café, blasting you into the future with a song from the past, bet you didn’t see that one coming? Heh. Pulled from the list of the 1001 albums you must hear before you die, that was Suicide from 1977 with Ghost Rider. So ahh welcome, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 243. This time the Sonic Café spins up a music mix from over 44 years. Listen for Morphine, Thievery Corporation, Twenty One Pilots, Bill Nelson and oh so much more. Home makeover shows. We’ve all seen them. Those shows where the homeowners can’t see the results until the big reveal scene at the end, and for some reason always love the results. Well not always, listen as the Sonic Café presents a decorating makeover reveal that goes badly, courtesy of the BBC. Then coming to us all the way from the Alpha Quadrant, Star Treks Odo, from Deep Space Nine explains the compromises we make when we choose to couple. And if that wasn’t enough, the Sonic Café presents our first shout-out and request for Mauricio, who listens to the Sonic Café in Brazil.

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 (
