Sonic Café that a tune that will sure get you going, from 1978 Elvis Costello and the Attractions with Pump it Up. Broadcasting from planet earth I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 280. Yes Virginia we’re still cranking them out… and we’ve lined up another good one this time at the Sonic Café. Musically our mix covers selections from 43 years or so. Listen for Cold Play, Ivy Levan, something brand new one from Billy Gibbons, Donald Fagen live at the Beacon, The Cure, The Killers and of course many more. Then comedian Jim Gaffigan stops by to explain why lying is a more serious crime than murder.Then later we’ve got that time Frank Zappa told Americans that it’s alright to be smart. And then still later a word from our newest sponsor Scrub a Dub. Don’t just clean your kitchen or bathroom Scrub a Dub it with Scrub a Dub. So all that and probably some other neat stuff too this time in another hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture. Here’s sax man Richard Elliot with Mr. Nate’s Wild Ride.

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 (
