Sonic Café. That’s the late, great Joe Cocker from 1972. Hey welcome, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 180. This time the Sonic Café presents a music mix pulled from 51 years. Listen for a very rare Steely Dan recording captured at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in 1974. It’s famous for the, shall we say inebriated, band introduction from Jerome Aniton, who was the bands truck driver back in the day. We think it’s one of the best intros of all time, and hope you agree. Then listen for classic jazz from Andrew Hill, also great blues from my cousin Fast Eddie Clarke, ahh he’s not really my cousin, but what the heck, and of course many more. Then later the Sonic Café checks in with comedian Jamie Lissow who’s hanging out at your local craft store… should be a good time… and finally a huge Sonic Café welcome to our latest sponsor, new Soothe Cough Medicine, featuring the patented cough killing concoction of codine, morphine and alcohol. Take Soothe and you’ll soon forget you ever had a cough, your name ahh and where to properly go to the bathroom. All that and of more this time from that little café on the big, blue Pacific coast. 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 (
