Sonic Café, Let the good times roll from the Cars, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 355. This time the Sonic Café has fun with America’s love for our cars. The technology may be shifting to electric, but whether you drive a giant SUV or a friendly little Leaf we’re all part of one giant car culture. Comedian Jose Sarduy steps up to the mic, to share his experience of driving a car that makes people angry, a Toyota Prius, and his audience wholeheartedly agrees. Our car-centric mix is pulled from 40 years. Listen for Cake, The Cure, blues man Joe Bonamassa, REO Speedwagon, Tom Waits talking about his Pontiac, the Plain White T’s and more. Then a big Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor, listen for Honest Ed’s Used Cars, where every car is backed by an iron clad guarantee so comprehensive they don’t feel the need to put it writing. Ahem. And finally a pop culture clip pulled from Seinfeld as we present, the washer fluid is NOT fine. All that and more as the Sonic Café celebrates America’s crazy car culture, from our little radio café way out here in the Pacific Northwest, here’s the Arctic Monkey’s with One For The Road, 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 (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)
