This time the Sonic Café presents a great big blast of a party, we’ll release a little tension, by blowing things up! Yep, better not get too close to your radio cause we’re bringin’ the heat. First, we’ll blow up a propane tank with an RPG. Then listen as Arnold Schwarzenegger blows up a closet… and his neighbors’ car, plus check in with Monty Python to witness the awesome power of the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, plus a bunch of other big bangs too. Then listen for a word from our newest sponsor… the Exploder Survival Knife, it’s the knife that saved America, and now it can save you too! All wrapped in a lethal mix skillfully selected from like 45 years. Listen for an explosion of tunes from Led Zeppelin, Sufjan Stevens, Green Day, the Psychedelic Furs, Thievery Corporation, the Strawbs and of course many more, all just ahead as the Sonic Café makes a really big bang blowing things up, right at that little café on the big blue pacific, here’s Stevie Wonder with the Masterblaster… 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 (
