Sonic Café, hey welcome, thanks for dropping by the café. I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 176. This time the Sonic Café presents another Twilight Zone Classic, Living Doll which aired originally in November 1963. One of the more famous Twilight Zone episodes, it’s seen parodies including the Simpson’s and Toy Story 4. It’s the story of the day Talky Tina joined the dysfunctional Streator family, mother Annabelle, her daughter Christie and stepfather Eric… apparently Eric is infertile and bitter, he directs his hostility toward his whole family. Well, since this is the Twilight Zone, we quickly discover that Talky Tina is not only aware, buy also evil… and she’s not having any of Daddy’s BS. So ahhh yeah. We’ve wrapped our story in a music mix including Devo, Florence & The Machine, Locust, a quirky instrumental from Frank Zappa and more. Plus the Sonic Café brings you an exclusive interview with the late, great, voice actress June Foray. June shares how she came to be the voice of Talky Tina. And finally, listen closely to the soundtrack of this Twilight Zone classic and you’ll hear it’s mostly bass clarinet… which we feel once again proves our theory that our world today would be much better off if it included more bass clarinet. So ahh join us as we present Living Doll in another Twilight Zone classic from that little café overlooking the awesome, blue Pacific… 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 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.

An episode is released each Friday. 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 (
