Sonic Café with the words of Ronnie Butler, Jr. , so how you doing anyway? I’m Scott Clark, welcome to episode 229. This time the Sonic Café looks at social media, how it’s reshaping our society, and our brains. So put your smart phone down and listen up as internet pioneer and author Jaron Lanier explains how the sophisticated algorithms in your social media apps are subtly changing how we feel, what we think, and where we spend our money. To lighten things up a bit, we’ll also present some social media comedic perspectives, listen for Lachlan Patterson, Seth Tippetts and Rachel Feinstein, all wrapped in a social media aware music mix including the Limousines with their tune, Internet Killed the Video Star, plus music from Distrubed, Parquet Courts, Incubus, Sheryl Crow, Thrice and also a tune from Broken Social Scene. Because if you’re going to present a show about the social media you’ve just got to include a song from Broken Social Scene. Right? Anyway all that and more as the Sonic Café presents something we’re calling the Social Network, from that little café on the coast that hopes you like us on Facebook. 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 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 (
