Sonic Café, that’s music from The Alarm… so glad you could drop by for the program. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 111. This time on the Sonic Café our headphone friendly music mix includes tracks from Walk Off The Earth, Dr. John, Son of Dave, Empire of the Sun, Bill Nelson, and Badly Drawn Boy to name just a few. Then later comedian Brian Regan will give you a few pointers to help ace your next eye exam. Oh and yeah we’ll toss in some great jazz too from Chaz Jankel. And finally the Sonic Café would like to welcome our newest sponsor, listen for a word from the Joe Johnson Memory System. All that … and of course more, coming at you this hour, as we bring you another episode of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture, from that little café, that sits high on cliff overlooking the big blue Pacific… 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 (

Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (

Pre-recorded Sonic Cafe promos are available to promote the show on your station. Each is roughly :24 seconds in length with time left to tag local broadcast day and time.
