Sonic Café, Roll With The Changes, from 1978 that’s REO Speedwagon, hey welcome to episode 144, I’m your host Scott Clark. This time the Sonic Café is entertaining a tour bus here at our little coastal cafe. The bus rolled in about an hour ago, packed with some older folks, in what you might call their golden years, and also some younger folks, eager to get to those golden years. We’ll get comedic perspectives from both. Listen as George Carlin and Brad Upton share how they’ve accepted there golden years along with comedians Nick Swardson and Tone Bell who imagine how cool those golden years will be. All of these perceptions on aging are wrapped in a music mix focused on the only two things we can count on in this life, constant and continuous change along with the irreversible march of time. So join us as the Sonic Cafe presents those golden years… oh I almost forgot, a big Sonic Café welcome to our special sponsor for this episode. The all-new Amazon Echo Silver edition, developed specifically for people of a certain age, and also special thanks to these fine sponsors for providing additional support… 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 “I 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, instead 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 (
