Sonic Café. Welcome to episode 142, I’m your host Scott Clark. You know everything about life is a gamble. With each new day yet another opportunity to take a chance, to maybe win big, or lose it all. This time the Sonic Café explores what can happen when you take a chance, and everything goes sideways, in another Twilight Zone Classic. We present The Fevor, which debuted in1960. It’s the story of Franklin and Flora Gibbs, who’ve won a trip to Las Vegas. Now Franklin isn’t at all happy in Vegas because he detests gambling, and even more, all those degenerates who gamble. But since this is the Twilight Zone, just by chance our high-minded Franklin gets coerced into putting just one dollar into a slot machine, and then pulling the handle of that one armed bandit, just once. After that, well Franklin gets the fever, and you know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. We’ve wrapped this story of compulsive behavior in a music mix that explores the idea of chance in a number of ways. Listen for Morphine, Joni Mitchell, Sarah Vaughan, Modest Mouse, Dan Fogelberg, Steve Winwood and of course more. All this time, from that little café on the coast that compulsively brings you a weekly dose of headphone friendly, intelligent, eclectic programming 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.
