Sonic Café. Hey welcome to the program. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 141. This time the Sonic Café brings you yet another mix of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from our little café nestled on the coast in beautiful Pacific Northwest. We’ll hear music pulled from over 43 years. Listen for Cat Clyde, Charlie, Matchbox Twenty, Birdy, blues man Kenny Wayne Shepherd and many more. Then later, the Sonic Café features classic stand-up from the late great comedian Mitch Hedberg captured for your enjoyment. All that plus some inspiring words from Matthew Mcconaughey as the Sonic Café brings you yet another in our series of Matthew Mcconaughey moments. And finally, a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor, listen for a few words from the Alco and Alcotine patch, two new products featuring the discreet transdermal delivery of alcohol and nicotine. So don’t drink it, and don’t smoke it… get the patch! All that and of course more this time from that little café on the coast that brings you a weekly dose of creative radio that’s fun! 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.
