Sonic Café, the Black Keys there with title track music from 2014’s Turn Blue album, so welcome to the café, we’re glad you dropped by. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 305. This time the Sonic Café chases down a motley crew of robbers, thugs and gangsters… and ahh puts the hurt on ‘em. Ahh, So if you can’t do the time don’t do the crime. Right? Comedians Brian Regan, Paul Ogata, Hannibal Burress, Collin Moulton and Mike Marino take us into the murky underworld inhabited by the bad guys to flush them out into the light of day. Our bad guy stories serve as backdrop to a music mix assembled from the last 51 years and includes Hall & Oates, Garbage, Arctic Monkeys, Gin Wigmore, Mountain and of course many more. Then to get equipped to deal with any bad guy that crosses your path, we bring you a word from our newest sponsor Ammu-Nation! From armor piercing bullets to anti-tank missiles, Ammu-Nation’s got you covered. America, stay armed to the teeth, Ammu-Nation, the paradigm of patriotism. So ahh all that and more as the Sonic Café proves once again that crime doesn’t pay on Robbers, Thugs and Gangsters. Here’s the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. 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 week. 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 (
