THE GREATEST VARIETY OF HITS AND RARITIES FROM THE MID 50'S THROUGH THE 70'S!
Thanks for stopping by! The Retro Attic is your 24/7 listener-supported internet radio guide to the mid 50's through the 70's. We play lost and classic top 40 hits, but we also place a heavy emphasis on the minor charters and non-charters...or as we call them, bottom 45's. Special shows will be announced as time permits. If you have a request or a suggestion or just want to say hi, then please use our chat widget in the lower right corner. There is also a song request form below on the right sidebar.
If you appreciate what we do, then please make use of our PayPal buttons on the site. You can donate a one-time amount or choose from 10 monthly subscription amounts; the donations will help enhance our programming and keep us on respected broadcasting platforms like Mixcloud and Live365.
Please feel free to ask how you can reserve a 2, 4, 6 or 8 hour block with a playlist of your favorites! Hardly anyone else is willing to offer this service!
The Retro Attic is officially on Live 365 as of February 4, 2020. For a donation of $5.00 a month(cheaper than Spotify, SiriusXM, and the cost of your monthly beverages), you will get the below perks. If you think that I'm doing a stellar job, then feel free to donate more. But just remember that this is a legitimate station and it does have monthly expenses to meet; I am also very passionate and serious about the music I program!
5 requests per day(50's-70's charting or non-charting singles only)
Ban a specific song from the rotation for 1 month
Your own 2 hour theme block every other month(all Motown, all teen idols, all psychedelic rock, etc.)
Thank you in advance for your contribution!

Reunited With A Long-Lost Song!
Have you ever had a few words from a chorus stuck in your head for over 20 years, but you couldn't quite figure out what the song was? I got reunited with one of those songs today for the first time since hearing it on adult contemporary radio back in 1980. Nationally, it peaked out at #69, but in my old stomping grounds, you would have sworn it was a top 10 hit! The chorus went something like this: "You're taking all I've got and now you're leaving, ooohhhhh, baby don't go, I thought love was something to believe in, oooohhhhh, baby don't go..." Listen for it later on today on The Retro Attic! Thanks for the catchy tune, Karla!
