Sonic Café, Reelin’ in the Years, that’s the music of Steely Dan from there 1972 Can’t Buy a Thrill album release. I’m Scott Clark, that guy over there, in the booth, in the back, in the dark… yeah that’s me, welcome to episode 128. This time the Sonic Café rewinds the clock to the days of top 40 radio with a fun mix of solid gold hits from the 1970’s. Listen for Rod Stewart, Billy Preston, The O’Jays, Stealers Wheel, Elton John, the Doobie Brothers and of course more. You’ll also hear King Tut, captured from Steve Martin’s 1978 debut performance on Saturday Night Live. And finally, a big Sonic Café welcome to a new sponsor, who’s actually an old sponsor. Listen for a word from the Super Bass-o-matic 76. Man, that’s great bass! All that and of course more as we spin Solid Gold hits of the 1970’s this time from that little café on the coast, where we’ve just finished installing all new wall to wall shag carpeting. 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 (
