Sonic Café, that’s The Strokes from 2001, thanks for dropping by our little radio café, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 389. So what’s going on with all of this generational bickering anyway? The Baby Boomers are upset with the Millennials, and the Millennials don’t like Gen Z, and nobody even remembers Gen X. It’s all a bit confusing, but not to worry because comedian Karen Morgan is here to explain it all to us, Gen X in particular, even though ahh nobody remembers them. So plan to takes notes. Our music mix covers 49 years and includes a track from X-Ray Spex from the 1978 Germ Free Adolescents release, also 2020 music from Sir Paul McCartney. From 1971 we’ll spin Taj Mahal, who wants to buy you a Chevrolet, the Black Crowes and more, including another Sonic Café twin spin. Listen for Kids in America, the 1981 Kim Wilde original followed by Billy Joe Armstrong’s 2020 re-imaging of the tune, both after the bottom of the hour, as the Sonic Café presents the Great Generational Divide, this time from way out here on the left coast. Here’s Richard Hell & The Voidoids. This is Blank Generation, 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 (
