Today’s Internet, Al Gore claims to have invented it via legislation crafted in the early nineties. Whether true or not, today the net is a force changing our world in ways Al could never have imagined, because we now have the power of instant information, available anytime, which has led to the phenomenon known as going down the proverbial internet rabbit hole. This time the Sonic Café boldly dives deep down the rabbit hole with comedians Rick D’Elia, Ellen DeGeneres, Emmy Blotnick and Andy Hendrickson. Their rabbit hole stories our wrapped in a music mix googled from that last 56 years. Listen for Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver, a 1995 Primus track with one of the best music videos ever.

Also Ambrosia, Neil Finn, The Gang of Four, The Clash and more, including You Really Got Me, a 1964 Kinks classic, rated number 80 on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 greatest rock songs of all time, all that and more as we all go down the rabbit hole together, from that little radio café way out here in the magnificent Pacific Northwest.

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 (facebook.com/SonicCafeRadio) where complete show notes and playlists are presented for each episode. Listeners can also reach the show producers via email (SonicCafeRadio@gmail.com)
