Sonic Café with music from the Killers! So ahh how you doin’? glad you could drop by our little coastal café today, I’m your host and proprietor Scott Clark and this is episode 230. This time the Sonic Café presents the stereotypical Oregonian lifestyle, listen for comedian John Beehner in something we call hippie wife, hippie life. Also life lessons about things you can say about a movie, ahh but never about your life partner. All this lifestyle wisdom is wrapped in a music mix including Twenty One Pilots, The Beat Poets, Michael McDonald, Dee-Lite, Twin Forks, the Strokes and of course many more. Ohh and a big Sonic Café welcome to our latest sponsor. Listen for a word from Finger Blasters, let’s get real, your teens are gonna eat snacks, better to have them snacking at home than at some movie theatre or in the woods. Finger Blasters, from the makers of Circle Jerky… ahem, so all that and more this time as we bring you another episode of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture… that’s just a bit irreverent, all from the hippie dippie Pacific Northwest, 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 he 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, 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 (
