Sonic Café, 1997 music there from Collective Soul, welcome to another hour of intelligent, eclectic music, comedy and pop culture from the Pacific Northwest. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 313. This time the Sonic Café breaks up with our cable company, ahh or at least tries to. And you know what we mean if you’ve ever tried to cut the cord. Yeah it ain’t easy. Listen as Successions Roman Roy tries to wiggle free from Spectrum in a hilarious, because it’s so close to the truth sketch from SNL. We grab our music mix from the last 54 years or so including Joy Division, The Black Keys, Crowded House, Everclear, ZZ Top and of course many more including a trip in the Sonic Café time machine all the way back to 1969. Listen for It’s Your Thing from the Isley Brothers. We’ll spin that up near the bottom of the hour. So ahh Breaking Up with Cable straight ahead from that little radio café on the big, blue Pacific.

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 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 (
