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 hour. 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 room in the bottom left 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)!

A DAY WITH SHADES OF GRAY - RIP DAVY JONES

Those of us who have a love for 60's music are certainly experiencing a great deal of sadness today; Monkees singer Davy Jones has succumbed to a heart attack. The Monkees may have been a prime target for the rock critics back in the day due to their "manufactured image(discussed in the 1968 Head soundtrack segment "Ditty Diego")" and their using a lot of session musicians in their early recordings(numerous other notable 60's bands did too, yet they were never targeted), but they had certainly earned a lot more respect over the years. One cannot deny their significant contributions to the world of psychedelia, music videos, and country rock. I don't know about you, but I'm hard-pressed to come up with another musical group who can be gone for almost 20 years, reunite, and place 7 albums on the Billboard 200 during 1 year! Not bad for a "fabricated" band, I must say! Remember their 3rd album "Headquarters?" They showed that they had decent musical chops that were good enough to stay right on the heels of Sgt. Pepper during the summer of '67(after it had spent a week on top of the album charts).

I had The Monkees as The Retro Attic's February artist of the month and had Olivia Newton-John slated for March. I have decided to push Olivia back to April and continue focusing on The Monkees for March. March's difference will be the inclusion of rare Davy solo tracks and some tracks from Dolenz, Jones, Boyce And Hart's mid 70's effort. If there is a special Monkees or Davy Jones related track you would like to hear, then please feel free to use our request form on our site.

Thank you for all of the wonderful musical memories Davy; you will be severely missed, but rest assured that The Retro Attic - Rare 50s To 80s Oldies will keep them alive and well!
