Sonic Café, Here Comes Yet Another Happy Day, that’s music from the Primitive Radio Gods, Hey welcome, to another hour of intelligent eclectic music, comedy and pop culture. I’m your host Scott Clark, and I am very glad that you’ve chosen to join us for episode 153. This time the Sonic Café helps you mellow out, forget about all your fears, and just be happy with a music mix pulled from 46 years. Listen for Bad Suns, Sheryl Crow, REM, King Crimson and many more including an instrumental track. We’ll present Traffic’s great tune entitled Glad from their 1970 John Barleycorn Must Die album. Then later the Sonic Café joins comedian Brian Regan as he navigates the ME monsters we frequently find during dinner party conversations… and then shares the topic of conversation that trumps them all. And finally a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor, listen for a word from Just Married… Just Married the only store you’ll ever need! All that and of course more from that little café on the pacific coast, a place where you can leave all of your worries at the door… and just be happy. 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 (
