Sonic Café, love is a good thing, Sheryl Crow. So welcome to another hour of intelligent, eclectic music comedy and pop culture. It’s a thing we call the Sonic Café, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 274. This time the Sonic Café presents the feel good psychobabble of Stuart Smalley’s Daily Affirmations. A bit that aired on Saturday Night Live through the mid nineties. Stuart was the brainchild of Al Franken, comedian, SNL alum, and former US Senator who was canceled by the cancel culture, a few years back. So ahh yeah. The Sonic Cafe brings some of Stuart’s most helpful segments including the time he helped Michael Jordan get his game back, Martin Lawrence overcome 400 years of oppression, talk with his nephew about chicken butts, and help Charles Barkley deal with the fact he never won an NBA championship. Hey, if Stuart Smalley can help these guys, he can sure help us too, right? All these Daily Affirmations are wrapped in a music mix pulled from 30 years or so. Listen for U2, Blind Mellon, Journey, Godley & Crème, The Strawbs and many more, as the Sonic Café makes you feel good about yourself with the Daily Affirmations of Stuart Smalley from our little café overlooking 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 (
