 Starting on November 1st, I want The Retro Attic to be your go-to outlet that has an impressive and wide variety of hits and rarities from the 50's through the 70' outlet that brings back great memories of simpler times and no boundaries when it came to radio outlet that pays attention to its listeners. For a very small monthly subscription of five dollars, you will get to send limitless request lists and get access to higher quality, on-demand tracks that you can hear on your schedule. And more importantly, your subscription will help keep the station running for a long time to come and will help launch a life-changing vision that I'm looking to start in the summer of 2021!

 My family and I have lived in the same small abode for over 12 years now(you know the deal, throwing money away), and we're ready to move on. We will be getting a 30 foot plus RV and will be seeing the country. I have a record collecting/former "junking" buddy down south who recently went on an RV trip out west(Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Oregon), and his pictures heavily inspired me to the point of realizing how drastically different scenery can be just a mere one thousand miles away. I'm not getting any younger, so now is the time. I want to take The Retro Attic out on the road and host oldies parties for those who want them; my wife and I have a professional mixing board and a couple of big speakers and soon will have lots of oldies karaoke at our disposal. I would also like to start a vlog(video blog) called "Somewhere We've Never Travelled," which I have to thank Ambrosia for the title. I'm also going to sell music-related collectibles that I've accumulated over the years, and traveling around should keep the inventory fresh.

 The music of yesteryear lives and breathes in me. It has done so especially since I was 10 years old and found myself alone, dealing with the breakup of the one and only family I truly wanted to be a part of. You could even say that this music was my "girlfriend" until I found a lady who really understood what I was all about(we got married in 2010). The pandemic is making me realize that my time in the job market is just about done. I telework at night and answer questions about a worldwide system that is very flawed. All I do is tell people that their cases aren't moving forward and won't for quite some time; other questions I can't help with because I'm not the one who does the actual adjudication of their cases. And the precious few times you go the extra mile and really help them move forward, you don't get any thanks. It's very unsatisfying and frustrating.

 But there are two things that bring me happiness and that use natural, unforced energy(besides my wife and son)...AND THOSE ARE BRINGING MY FANS THE MUSIC THEY GREW UP WITH AND HELPING THEM DISCOVER FORGOTTEN GEMS. I'm quite good with music trivia and my dedication to the station I would hope has been fairly obvious!

 There is no ulterior motive here. A good number of people know that The Retro Attic has been around since 2011. Could some improvements be made? Of course, but I do my best to keep up with the changing technology. The station is licensed, and at least a couple of loyal supporters out there are making sure that it stays that way.

 Please help out if you can by subscribing at for the "Five Dollar Club" banner below the Paypal banner for more information). All I ask is that when you send your lists of requests, please realize that I will chip away at them as my free time permits. Some requests may not get played if I feel that they could be objectionable/profanity-laced or are just way too long for the average listener to tolerate. Feel free to use the site's chat widget and I will explain how the on-demand tracks will work. You can also ban a song you think is terrible for two weeks as long as you understand that it can't be banned repeatedly.

 Thank you for reading this and for your continued listening. Here is hoping that we all have a bright future!

THE AMERICAN BOTTOM 45 OF THE DAY - The Glass Bottle - Sorry Suzanne - Peaked At 130 In Cashbox Magazine On 7/25/70.

Recently I had an hour to kill, so I decided to watch an original broadcast of "The 5th Dimension Special" from May 1970 on CBS. It featured cuts from their newly released "Portrait" album as well as some earlier hits; there were also appearances from Glen Campbell, Flip Wilson, Tiny Tim, Arte Johnson, and the absolutely stunning Joey Heatherton('72 hit "Gone," a Retro Attic staple).

The commercials focused solely on The Glass Container Manufacturers Institute, Inc., and that's where today's featured group comes into the picture. Two of the commercials featured this group performing while the audience consumed soft drinks out of glass bottles. I guess the idea was to stress that soda belonged in glass bottles since glass could be grinded down afterwards and returned to the earth's surface.

The Glass Bottle were a 4 man, 2 woman group who looked like a pop version of Sly And The Family Stone. Their drummer rocked the 'fro as well as Grand Funk's Don Brewer did! This 45 was one of their first releases and yes, it is the same tune that The Hollies had a mid-charter with in '69(as a result, The Hollies' version will be retired from the rotation for a while). Some of you may remember their top 40 hit from the summer of '71, a woeful pop tune called "I Ain't Got Time Anymore." It has been a Retro Attic standard since Day 1, and I could always picture David Cassidy singing it.

Come to our website at and hear The Glass Bottle anytime! I highly recommend checking out that 5th Dimension special; I'll leave it up to you to decide if you want to enjoy it with Miller Beer and a pack of Viceroy cigarettes.
