DJ Gilbert Matthews welcomes you to The Retro Attic Of Oldies, a 24/7 internet radio station that primarily plays those classic and seldom heard top 40 entries from 1957-1989. Hopefully our 5-song year blocks will be mind-blowing musical history lessons for you! In each block, we will include a rarity/"truly lost oldie," which will be either a minor charter(peaked between 41 and 100), a Bubbling Under/Looking Ahead entry(a song that peaked between 101 and 150), a non-charter, or a tune that was only an overseas hit. Sit back, have fun, and take yourself back to simpler times(when people smiled at each other and didn't question why, kids played outside all day, and parents never worried)! You can also find us on Shoutcast, Virtual Radio, Nobex Radio, Delicast, Streamfinder, Tunein.com(highly recommended for those of you who use mobile apps), and ITunes Radio in their "Golden Oldies" category. Feel free to chat with other oldies lovers in our Chatango chat room(look for it below - it's just underneath our "Live Streaming" button) or request a live chat with the DJ(look for the "Chat With DJ Gilbert Matthews" section that is just below here - please leave a message if it shows that I'm offline). Happy LISTENING! Spread the word about us!

REPETITION ISSUE

The Retro Attic Of Oldies is now back on Shoutcast, which made me decide to rebuild the station from scratch. For a little while, you will be hearing the same 5 song year blocks over and over while I'm in the rebuilding process. I apologize for this, but the previous programming format I had on Icecast had no organization to it whatsoever; I would rather have my listeners hear "mini musical history lessons" for 1973, 1985, etc. instead of bouncing all over the place with each song.

Eventually, everyone should be pleased! When all is said and done, I will have a different playlist for each day of the week. The only chance of something repeating during the same day will be one of the random tracks from my Featured Artist Of The Month. Once those 7 playlists are completed, any new year blocks I put together will be added to the next day's playlist.

I know it's frustrating, but stations have to change their presentation every so often or else they will get stale. Bear with me, keep checking in periodically, and you will find that my variety of oldies will get more and more diverse!

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW STREAMING HOST PROVIDER

After 3 years, The Retro Attic says goodbye to Shoutcast and hello to Icecast! Beginning on Saturday 8/16, The Retro Attic will have a new streaming host provider. We will be spending the next few days revamping our playlists; you may hear several repeats at first, but before you know it, the variety that you've come to know from us will be back and better than ever!

One of our listeners pointed out that playing only one forgotten oldie every 45 minutes makes us lose what originally made us unique among oldies stations. With this provider change, we can announce that both sectors of our audience will be happy; we will continue to focus primarily on classic and lost top 40 hits from the 50's through the 80's, but there will now be 4 forgotten oldies played every 45 minutes! And for those who mainly love the obscure side of the charts, we will be bringing back an American Bottom 45 countdown show in the near future(visit our website or join our Facebook group to keep posted on when the first show will air).

Join us on Saturday night, 8/23 from 7 to 9 eastern as we present a block of tunes that were showcased on MTV during August of 1981. Needless to say, it will be a mix of the familiar and obscure! Feel free to contact us and make a request for the block if you know your MTV history well!

Our website is located at retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and our Facebook group can be found at http://facebook.com/groups/retroatticrareoldiesradio. Thanks go out to our past and present listeners and we look forward to seeing many new listeners in the coming weeks!

FINAL FORMAT CHANGE COMING IN THE FALL

It looks like it's time for me to heed the advice of some fellow radio nuts in an Internet Radio Broadcasting Facebook group that I belong to. Apparently most people who listen to classic rock and/or oldies radio want to hear songs that, for the most part, they are familiar with. An occasional "wow" factor is okay, but if you primarily base your station on material that only a hardcore record collector would know, then your station will never build a significant audience.

It's going to take me the rest of the summer to do it, but The Retro Attic will eventually be formatted so that classic and lost top 40 hits from the 50's through the 80's will make up the majority of the programming day. 2 hours of each day will be devoted to songs from these decades that hit the bottom half of the charts or didn't chart at all(and each day, these 2 hours will be totally different!). There will still be a Featured Artist Of The Month heard once an hour, but only during the other 22 hours of the day. Requests will always be accepted.

I will admit that I have programmed my station during the past 3 years with primary emphasis on what I want to play, and that was apparently not the correct way of thinking. Whatever it takes, I will make The Retro Attic one of your ideal choices for oldies music. If you have any comments, then please feel free to submit them; I need to start listening to YOU, not me!
