Sonic Café that’s the Starseeds with Starman from the dawn of the new millennium, ahh so hey how you doin’? I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 236. Stellar Seismology, the technique astronomers use to record the cosmic symphony of stars. Though we can’t hear it with our ears, stars perform a concert that never stops. Big stars make deep sounds, small stars produce high pitches, mix it all together and you’ve got quite a concert. So, this time the Sonic Café brings you the songs that stars sing in a thing we’re calling My God It’s Full Of Stars. Our mix includes actual star sounds along with a star-crossed batch of tunes pulled from over 40 years. Listen for Starcastle, the Flaming Lips, Flunk, Broken Social Scene, Tears for Fears and many more. Then later we’ll get cosmic perspective from Carl Sagan, listen in on an actual alien abduction, courtesy of Chris and Jack and still later listen for William Shatner, the original star ship commander in his search for major Tom. All that and of course more straight ahead as we bring you the sounds stars make from that little café that looks out over the star filled sky over the big blue Pacific. 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 (
