Sonic Café. Put on your red shoes and dance the blues. That’s the music of the late great David Bowie. Hey welcome to episode 124 of the Sonic Café. I’m Scott Clark, your host with the two left feet. Dancing. When it comes to dancing really, you either got it, or you don’t. There’s those folks who’ve got the moves. Then there are those of us that can’t dance a single step… and finally there are those like me who just stink up the whole dance floor with my natural white boy rhythm. Ahem. So this time the Sonic Café confidentially struts out onto the dance floor with a music mix pulled from 48 years. Listen for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, King Harvest, Wang Chung, Genesis, Leo Sayer and many more. Then to compliment this collection of dance hall favorites the Sonic Café brings you a variety of comedic observations on dancing. Listen for Cory LeRoy, Jill Michele Melean, Max Amini, Lowell Sanders and Dwayne Perkins. All this just ahead as we present another hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from that little café in the great Pacific Northwest where we always dance like we don’t care ahhh cause we really don’t. 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.
