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)!

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - CLIMAX BLUES BAND - I LOVE YOU
This week, I thought I'd feature one of the songs that will be on the upcoming American Bottom 45 show for this month. Who says that these guys couldn't get it right? As far as top 40 success was concerned, they got it right twice by hitting the top 3("Couldn't Get It Right") and the top 15(this one). I felt they deserved a 3rd appearance in the top 40 with "Gotta Have More Love," but sometimes timing isn't everything.
Some critics slammed this song because it sounded "too influenced" by Badfinger, but I know I didn't care. I thought that Badfinger was a great band!
Anyways, enjoy this clip and I'll see you on Sunday for the countdown show!
