THE BEST, WORST, AND MOST OVERLOOKED TUNES FROM 1960-1979 - IT'S TIME TO CRINGE OR SMILE!
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)!

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!
