Sonic Café with a Miracle Out Of Nowhere, Kansas music from 1977. I’m your host Scott Clark bringing you another hour of the radio program where amazing things happen at almost every moment. Welcome to episode 162, this time the Sonic Café presents a music mix we’ve tapped from 44 years. Listen for Ani DiFranco, Robert Plant, Argent, the Arctic Monkeys, Sparks, Gerry Rafferty and many more. Then later the Sonic Café helps you feel the burn baby, as we get into shape with stand-up comedy from Danny Johnson. And finally a huge Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from The Military. Get a career where you’re always on the winning team in the Military. All that and probably some other neat stuff too, all this time from that little café perched high on a cliff overlooking the big, blue Pacific. A place where amazing things happen at almost every moment, 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 (
