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 - DAVE EDMUNDS - HIGH SCHOOL NIGHTS - 1985 - #91

Best known for his top 40 hits "I Hear You Knockin'" and "Slipping Away," British guitarist Dave Edmunds hit the Hot 100 one last time in 1985 with this track that was featured in "Porky's Revenge," the third and last movie in the successful "Porky's" franchise. I always thought this song wasn't given a fair chance, and the best way to hear it is through the extended version that was played during the movie's closing credits.

Dave always had an obvious love for late 50's and early 60's rock and roll. This was especially true with his playing a big part in getting The Stray Cats a lot of success in the U.S. He could also crank out some frenzied fretwork with the best of them; check out "Sabre Dance" from his late 60's group Love Sculpture and you will quickly understand!

Choosing this video this week was easy for another reason: it is my way to remind you of my new show "Gil's High School Reunion," which begins today and runs daily until June 29th from 2 to 3 PM eastern. This will really be the only time on The Retro Attic when you will get to hear mostly hits! The show features all of the hits from 1973-83 that you love(or perhaps can only barely tolerate) along with the occasional lost gem. The show culminates on June 29th with an all-day marathon that will serve as the background music at my 30th reunion party. All I know is that it cuts down considerably on having to lug around a bunch of equipment and everyone will get to mingle/enjoy themselves!
