Sonic Cafe, People Are People, that’s Depeche Mode. Hey welcome to another headphone friendly hour of intelligent eclectic music, comedy and pop culture. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 156. This time the Sonic Café slips into the middle ground between light and shadow with another Twilight Zone Classic. Listen as we explore People Are Alike All Over, episode 10 from season 1, originally aired in March of 1960. It’s the story of two men taking a highway into space, destination Mars. One of our travelers is a positive thinker who thinks any aliens they might discover in the universe would be kind, carrying people, just like them. The other traveler has a more cynical view of humanity and interplanetary nature, and since this is the Twilight Zone we find that both men are correct… People ARE alike all over. We’ve wrapped this tale in a music mix 46 years that explores the milk of human kindness from a number of angles. Listen for Melody Gardot, Spandau Ballet, the Supreme Beings of Leisure, Gentle Giant, Procol Harum and many more as we bring you People Are Alike All Over on another Twilight Zone classic 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 (
