Sonic Café, the intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture… you know that you need. Yeah. I’m your host Scott Clark, welcome to episode 148. This time the Sonic Café gives you the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars as we explore the vastness of the space. I checked it out last night and believe me the place is huge. But don’t take my word for it… listen as renowned astronomer, astrophysicist and author Carl Sagan explains just how insignificant our little blue planet is against the back-drop of the cosmos. Carl’s comments are wrapped in a music mix pulled from 49 years. Listen for Small Sails, Radiohead, The Quitters, Janelle Monae and many more. We’ll also present starship captain, William Shatner’s beat poetry version of David Bowie’s Major Tom. Where else are ya gonna hear that, huh? Then, for additional perspective, comedian Joe Rogan describes the vastness of space in his ahh own unique way… and later comedian Nate Bargatze explains how he should have been your science teacher, if it weren’t for that whole Pluto debacle. Oh, and yeah, a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from Cumulonimbus Cloud Computing. The future is in the cloud… all that and probably some other stuff too, as we give you the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars from that little café on the coast 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 (
