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 January 2019). 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)!

Some of these you may not have heard of. Tina Charles was a gal who, while she may not have had any U.S. hits on her own, did sing lead on the mid 70's top 30 dance hit "I'm On Fire" from 5000 Volts. Neil Scott was better known as Neil Bogart, the founder of Casablanca and Buddah Records. Pat Hervey was pretty much the Canadian equivalent of Brenda Lee. And Arkade...you will hear some background info on the group when you hear it on the station!

Thanks for tuning in and thanks to those who have offered their support! And prayers go out to those who may end up in the path of Florence on the east coast.

MORE NEW ADDS/SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER FEATURED ARTISTS

Here are some more new adds from the past several days. I'm sorry that they're not in alphabetical order, but I just keep a running list as the requests come in or when my warped, twisted mind decides to add something that hardly anyone has ever heard of:

The Hollies - On A Carousel
Johnny Preston - Feel So Fine
Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay
The Osmonds - One Bad Apple
The Tams - What Kind Of Fool(Do You Think I Am)

The Monkees - A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You
The Packers - Hole In The Wall

Aretha Franklin will be our September Featured Artist Of The Month(7 songs a day for all 30 days, 8 AM to 8 PM eastern). I certainly have enough from 4 decades' worth of charters to work with, so it won't be a problem making it interesting. There have been a few scattered complaints about how very few internet stations have been paying tribute to her, so I'm throwing my hat into the ring(I already play several of her hits now, as some of you know).

Since the leaves change colors around here usually during the first half of October, I think that October will be "Featured Colors Of The Month" - in other words, 50's-70's songs with colors in the title. I'm not sure yet on who will be showcased in November and December.

My son is having major surgery on Wednesday, so I will need some musical therapy this weekend! Stop by the webpage and say hi; I'll be around off and on during the next couple of days.

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.
