Sonic Café. Welcome to another Twilight Zone Classic. I’m Scott Clark. This time listen for excerpts from It’s a Good Life… which aired originally in 1961. It’s about Anthony Fremont. You’re typical bratty little six year old. But since this is the Twilight Zone, there is most definitely a twist. You see, little Anthony does cute things like making three headed gofers out of thin air and killing anyone who isn’t absolutely adoring him by sending them out into a cornfield they never return from. Oh yeah, also no automobiles, electricity, internet or television… unless of course the little brat decides to have TV night. Which as I understand it … is much better than the old television. Yeah, the kind of kid you’d definitely send to bed without super, if you could that is. All that, plus a mix of diabolical and devilish tunes covering 32 years… from Grace Jones, Matt Berry, Tommy Bolin and more, all chosen to enhance your listening experience… just remember to think happy thoughts and keep smiling… this time on another Twilight Zone Classic … here at 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 (
