Sonic Café with the Smithereens… how you doin’? I’m Scott Clark, sitting here enjoying a giant whammy burger and fries, as we bust out a Fast Food Feast on episode 114 of the Sonic Café. Though we’ll never admit it, we American’s love our fast food. Over 230 thousand fast food locations, ringing up $198 billion dollars in sales a year suggest that a few of us may be hiding our love for all that flame broiled flavor and deep fried goodness. Heck, 79% of us visit MacDonald’s at least once a year. So to celebrate our secret passion for all food that is fast the Sonic Café presents a musical feast cooked up from over 40 years. Listen for the Allman Brothers, Deep Blue Something, a Billie Holiday remix, Larry Cordie, MonkeyJunk and more. We’ll also join comedian Jeff Richards and his uncle’s friend at Denny’s, and also listen in on Patrick Stewart, Star Trek’s captain Picard, at a MacDonald’s drive thru. And finally, a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor… Almost Pizza… it’s practically pizza in every way except for a few key ones. Sounds yummy. So join us for our fast food feast at the little café on the coast that’s always grillin’ up a big, juicy whammy burger… we’re the Sonic Café.

The Sonic Cafe features an intelligent, eclectic mix of music, comedy and pop culture showcasing 30 to 60 years of content within each episode.

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves music, comedy and pop culture rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. All announcer voiceovers are presented over the background noise of a busy cafe with references made to the café environment to create a theatre of the mind experience for listeners.

The program actually does originate 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.

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.

Original syndication date was 7/22/2016. At that time 31 shows had already been produced (over six months of content) with new episodes produced weekly. A new episode is released each week. You can confidently add The Sonic Cafe to your schedule knowing that a backlog of shows is already produced awaiting weekly release.

The Sonic Cafe has a Facebook page ( where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. The Sonic Café can also be streamed from MixCloud (

Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (

Pre-recorded Sonic Cafe promos are available to promote the show on your station. Each is roughly :24 seconds in length with time left to tag local broadcast day and time. We are also happy to produce custom promos, station IDs, etc. Contact us via email to request promo files. Also please let us know if you pick-up the program on your station so we can announce it on our Facebook page.
