Sonic Café. Hey welcome to episode 59, I’m your host Scott Clark. This time our eclectic, headphone friendly music mix is on the jazz side. Chunky bass lines, infectious beats, and tasty grooves… that will transform you into a jazz junky if you’re not careful… Our mix covers over 40 years. Listen for tunes from Doctor Rockit, Bob James, Active Ingredient, Henry Mancini and more. Plus listen for excerpts from an extremely rare interview John Coltrane gave to Frank Kofsky in 1966. The Trane shares his thoughts on how music can create initial patterns that contribute to new thought … how it can be a force for good … and how he always lived to be a force for good. Cool stuff from a musical legend. Intelligent, eclectic music … from the jazz side… this time on 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.
