Sonic Café. I’m Scott Clark, and this is episode 132. Time. The days, months and years slip by so quickly. We spend our irreplaceable time attending to everything, but what matters most. So what would happen, if everything were turned upside down and we finally had time to ourselves? What would that be like? This time the Sonic Café brings you Time Enough at Last, a Twilight Zone Classic that originally aired in 1959. Starring the late Burgess Meredith, as the mild mannered bank teller Henry Bemis, a guy who just wants to be left alone to read. Read anything, from soup labels, to the classics. But everyone in his life conspires against him. That is, until a nasty nuclear firestorm came along and wiped out everything and everyone accept Henry and a library packed with books. At last with all distractions are gone, Henry has time enough at last. But then, in a cruel twist of fate, it’s taken from him in an instant, when his reading glasses are smashed beyond repair, leaving Henry with the time, but no longer the means to indulge his passion. To compliment this time warn tale, the Sonic Café presents a mix of artists who each have their own take on time. Listen for Sugar Blue, Crosby, Stills, Nash, the Anderson Ponty Band, Led Zeppelin and many more. All this time, on another Twilight Zone Classic, from that little café on the coast, where we always have enough time for what matters, we’re the Sonic Café.

The Sonic Cafe features an intelligent, eclectic mix of music, comedy and pop culture showcasing 30 to 60 years of content within each episode.

The show is set in an imaginary cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Central Oregon Coast. The cafe serves music, comedy and pop culture rather than breakfast, lunch and dinner. All announcer voiceovers are presented over the background noise of a busy cafe with references made to the café environment to create a theatre of the mind experience for listeners.

The program actually does originate 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.

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.

Original syndication date was 7/22/2016. At that time 31 shows had already been produced (over six months of content) with new episodes produced weekly. A new episode is released each week.
