Sonic Café, The More You Get, that’s Mose Allison from the 1988 Gimcracks and Gegaws album, love that title. Hey, I’m Scott Clark and this is episode 374, welcome to the café. This time the Sonic Café taps into our consumerist culture, of getting more stuff, cheaper and faster in a thing we’re calling More of Everything. Our music mix is pulled from 51 years. Every tune in this set is either about wanting more, or conversely the question, how much is too much. Listen for The Police, Yes, Frank Zappa, bluesman Leo Welch, Goo Goo Dolls, Ani DiFranco and of course many more. Also, comedian Ronny Chieng describes America as the land of the free, and the land of never leaving your houses in a rant about Amazon Prime not being fast enough, so they gave us Amazon Now. Funny stuff and great observations all straight ahead as the Sonic Café brings you more of everything, in another episode of intelligent eclectic music, comedy and pop culture, from way out here in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s More Than Ever, this is Robert Palmer, and as always, 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)
