Sonic Café, Steely Dan there, from the 1973 Countdown to Ecstasy album. So welcome, time to forget all those things you’re worried about and join us here for episode 259. I’m your host Scott Clark and this time the Sonic Café presents the Jack in the Beanstalk: the sequel. Yes, just like any blockbuster, Hollywood makes a follow-up to keep ringing that cash register baby… so we thought we’d do the same with this Fractured Fairytale narrated by Edward Everett Norton. Our sequel picks up a generation later and tells us how the Giant’s son gets the goose back. Yay bet you didn’t see that one coming? Our story is supported by a music mix plucked from 45 years featuring tunes about gold and clouds and guns from Tonic, The Bamboos, David Sylvian, Aerosmith, Panic at the Disco and of course many more. All that plus a bang up Sonic Café welcome to our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from Guns. Yes guns. Wherever life takes you, there will be Guns. Guns, they’re here to stay! All that and more as we present Jack and the Beanstalk: the sequel, here from that little café that brings you intelligent, eclectic, irreverent radio that’s fun! Here’s Todd Rundgren. 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 (
