Sonic Café. Hey welcome to another hour of intelligent, eclectic music comedy and pop culture that’s ahh out of this world. I’m Scott Clark, thanks for joining us as we prepare to launch into episode 133. This time the Sonic Café comes just a bit unhinged as we first hear an aging baby boomer rant on about millenials. Then later well hear comedian Shayne Smith hate on the entire state of Wyoming. All wrapped in a music mix pulled from over forty years. We’ll spin the Baker Brothers, Blink 182, Herb Alpert and Lani Hall, Joe Jackson, and of course many more. Then later listen as Hollywood movie star Matthew Mcconaughey gives you tips to live a better life in our very first Matthew Mcconaughey moment. And finally a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Swiftamine. Get Swiftamine, for those times when you’ve just had enough of Taylor Swift. All of that and more this time from that little café on the coast in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, 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.
