Sonic Café. Featuring a mix of eclectic music, comedy and pop culture. Welcome to episode 66, I’m your host Scott Clark. This time our music mix is all about family fun… family vacations, sibling rivalries, marital bliss and more. Listen for tunes from Three Dog Night, John Lee Hooker, Tonic, and Eric Clapton to name a few. Plus classic jazz from Horace Silver, we’ll play title track music from his Song for My Father LP, released in 1965. All that, plus comedian Jim Gaffigan tells us all about his first, and last, Disney World family vacation. All mixed together with some clips from classic family sitcoms… as we focus on a little family time… here at that little café on the coast, 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 (
