Sonic Café, from The Grand Pecking Order LP that is Mr. Oysterhead here on the Sonic Café. Welcome to episode 130. I’m your host Scott Clark, so glad you could drop by the program. This time the Sonic Café presents a very eclectic mix of tunes we’ve pulled from 38 years. So eclectic in fact, that we bet you’ve never heard of most of the artists, and you’ve probably never heard any of the tunes. But stick around because they’re all great. Listen for music from Dim Dim, Ghost Beach, Afterlife, Mark Eitzel and many more. Then later the Sonic Café features comedian Robert Mac, presenting his vast array of Chinese Conspiracy Theories, so good they’re almost believable. And finally a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. E-Meth. E-Meth, it’s Crystal Meth, but now electronic, so it produces vapor instead of smoke. So now you can ride the ice pony anywhere you want with all new E-Meth. All that and of course more this time as we present another hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from that little café on the coast where we’re cookin’ it up fresh just for you. 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 (
