Sonic Café, the Girl Is Crying In Her Latte, new music from Sparks. It’s like their 25th studio album since 1971. After all these years, Ron and Russell are still on the cutting edge of cool, demonstrated by the art pop video-starring actress Cate Blanchett. Please check it out, it’s great! Anyway, welcome to the café, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 372. This time the Sonic Café takes a trip into the great outdoors, with a thing we’re calling Camping Is Only Fun, If you Actually Enjoy Camping. Comedian Tim Harmston is here with his camping story. Give it a listen as see if you can guess ahh if he enjoys camping. Tim’s campfire stories are wrapped in a music mix pulled from the last 50 years. Listen for The Tragically Hip, Fast Eddie Clarke, Fall Out Boy, Alice Merton, Dirty Honey and more, including a warp back to 1973 in the Sonic Café Time machine. Listen for Lady, Styx music pulled from the Styx II album. All that and more as the Sonic Café goes camping here in the magnificent Pacific Northwest, here’s music from The Whitest Boy Alive, and 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 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 (
