Sonic Café, that’s the Art of Noise featuring Tom Jones with a cover of the Prince tune Kiss. So ahh welcome I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 251. This time the Sonic Café takes it old school baby, with a mix of cover tunes so great they’re scary! Every song we’ll hear was originally released between 1958 and 1986, so now, even the covers are oldies. So ahh, listen for Kansas covering the Beatles, Billy Idol covering the Doors, the Supersonic Blues Machine covering Bobby Bland, Kandace Springs covering War, and well you get the idea. Also listen for a comedic quick take from Ryan Singer, who’s absolutely convinced Aliens built the pyramids. And before we forget, an Affordable Care Sized welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from Cheyenne Dialysis, offering great dialysis deals every day. They chose this episode because for some reason, oldies just seem to attract the right audience. Anyway, enough of that. Here’s Cheap Trick with they’re cover of the song Elvis made famous way back in 1958, an old school cover tune so great it’s scary! 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 (
