Sonic Café. Mr. Brightside that’s music from the Killers. So how you doin? I’m your host Scott Clark. Welcome to episode 163. This time the Sonic Café once again unleashes the power of our song-selecting algorithm the Totally Random Improbability Drive. It’s just like a Spotify… but it’s not. Anyway we turned it loose to select all the tunes you’ll hear this hour and we think it did a pretty darn good job, grabbing tunes from over 40 years. Listen for Keepsake, The Black Crowes, Joe Walsh, a beat poetry poem form Ken Nordine and more. Then the Sonic Café asks you to complete this sentence. You know you’re getting older when… For help, we’ll check in with comedian Ty Barnett for some plausible answers. See if you can relate. And finally for all those aging men out there a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Man-O-Pause Adventure Travel, men the decline has begun, time to fight back with Man-O-Pause Adventure Travel. All that and much more as the Sonic Café turns loose the powers of the Totally Random Improbability Drive once again, from that little café on the coast where something random happens every day. 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 (
