DJ Gilbert Matthews welcomes you to The Retro Attic, a 24/7 internet radio station that primarily plays those classic and seldom heard top 40 entries from the 60's and 70's, along with a sprinkling of late 50's and early 80's hits that also fit the format. Hopefully our wide variety of oldies will be mind-blowing musical history lessons for you! A couple of "Bottom 45's" from each decade will be included every hour; these are defined as minor charters(peaked between 41 and 100), Bubbling Under/Looking Ahead entries(peaked between 101 and 150), non-charters, or tunes that were only hits in Canada, the UK, or Australia. A track from our "Featured Artist Of The Month" will also be heard every 2 hours(beginning in November 2017). 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 me, DJ Gilbert Matthews, through our live chat widget in the bottom right corner of our webpage. HAPPY LISTENING! Spread the word about us and join other fellow oldies lovers in our Facebook group(search for The Retro Attic)!

THE LATEST NEW ADDS AND WE'RE STILL FIGHTING!

Below is a big list of the latest new adds on The Retro Attic!

We're continuing on. Streamlicensing wants us to forward any mean ASCAP letters to their attorneys, and they stated in a conference call today that they will have our backs in case their dispute with ASCAP goes to trial. Simply put, all of the performing agencies SL is in agreements with were overpaid in royalties for almost the past year due to a technical glitch in the songbase software. All of our stations' commercials, jingles, sweepers and liners were being included in the count. BMI, SESAC and Soundexchange are all being cooperative with the internal audit, but ASCAP ran out of patience. Any monies due ASCAP are currently sitting in an escrow account and will be released to them once an amicable solution is reached(even though, for all intents and purposes, they had been paid all along!). We are supposed to be getting a letter tomorrow that further states SL's intentions and indemnifications for us.

SL has been good to me over the past 3 years, so I'm going to give them a chance to prove themselves. I really think they do have a case. If I feel that it is starting to get "too hot," then I will move on to another outlet.

Please give me until the 10th, and I'll see what I can do about spotlighting Elvis in August(there's a good reason, I'm sure you know). I'm also going to make more of an effort to beef up the 60's hits and there are a bunch of Cashbox "Looking Ahead" and Uni Records singles I want to throw in.

OUR 154 LATEST NEW ADDS/APRIL ARTISTS OF THE MONTH

As promised last night, here is the list of our 154 latest new adds. It's a combination of requests and some selections that I felt should have been in the rotation a long time ago!

I know it's been delayed, but Stevie Wonder and The 5th Dimension as co-Featured Artists Of The Month will definitely start on the morning of April 1st. I just wanted to make sure that they were thoroughly covered. From Stevie, you will hear all of the charters from '63 through '79(except for the Xmas tune) along with some selected 80's charters. From The 5th Dimension, you will hear all of the charters from '67 through '76 along with The Versatiles, some Marilyn/Billy numbers, and some cuts from the group's unsuccessful tenure with Motown Records.

POTENTIAL CLOSING OF THE RETRO ATTIC ON 2/28?

Unless things drastically turn around in the next several days, The Retro Attic and Awfully Awesome 80's will be shutting their doors at 11 PM eastern on February 28th. It's just not possible for me to continue dealing with a higher licensing cost if I'm taking care of 2/3 to 3/4 of the operating costs every month.

It's not out of the question that I could return one day, and it's also quite possible that I could be back in the short term as an occasional podcaster.

If you can help these stations to survive, then please get in touch with me.
