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)!

Depending on where you're located this holiday weekend, you either got rained out or...dare I say it...snowed out! Here at The Retro Attic, the forecast is always sunny as we dish out abundant amounts of musical memories from 40 years' worth of Hot 100 and Bubbling Under charts. It's time to usher in the start of summer and the 1 month countdown to a special event as we present another episode of "Gil's High School Reunion!"

Anybody who has an upcoming reunion in the 25th to 40th range will dig Monday's playlist! The volume intensity will fluctuate from -1 to 11 thanks to artists such as The Emotions, Greg Kihn Band, Dr. Hook, Air Supply, Randy Meisner, The Doors(RIP Ray Manzarek), Grand Funk, Laura Branigan, Sammy Johns, Gene Cotton, Pointer Sisters, Thin Lizzy, The Wing And A Prayer Fife And Drum Corps., Trooper, ZZ Top, Bruce Springsteen, and The B-52's.

Tune in Monday(as well as every day until June 30th) at 2 PM eastern to hear the show! You can do so by visiting us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com; while you're there, feel free to request your favorite summertime oldie!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 5/22 PLAYLIST

"Gil's High School Reunion" rolls on tomorrow at 2 PM eastern with another hour of 70's and 80's tunes that will make you twist, shout, cry, sing along, or perhaps even beg for mercy. Wednesday's playlist contains all bonafide classics except for one, but it can be forgiven; the lone exception and one other tune have connections to everyone's favorite arena rock group, Journey!

The menu will include: Warren Zevon, Eddie Rabbitt, Stevie Nicks, 707, Bonnie Tyler, Paul Simon, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus, Joe Jackson, Chic, Santana, Ronnie Milsap, Supertramp, George Baker Selection, and Toni Basil.

If you haven't seen your favorite 25th or 30th high school reunion era tune in the menus(approximately 1973-83) so far, then let Chef Gilbert Matthews know and he will whip up a sizzlin' platter straight from his vast musical grill! But hurry...his reunion is only a little more than a month away!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 5/16 PLAYLIST

Going to high school in the 70's and early 80's meant dealing with a melting pot of classmates: you had the rebel who wrapped fake soda labels around beer cans and brought them into school, you had the girl who was mellow and as nice as could be, and you had the bespectacled genius who was a closet metalhead. Today's edition of "Gil's High School Reunion" could also be called an extremely eclectic melting pot; where else in the course of 10 minutes can you jump up and down like a pogo stick, quickly change into denim and leather and give yourself instant whiplash, and come back down to earth by grabbing your office co-worker and doing a slow dance?

Today's musical alumni includes the following: The 4 Seasons, Wall Of Voodoo, Daryl Hall & John Oates, John Sebastian, Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, The James Gang, AWB, Uriah Heep, Motorhead, Rhythm Heritage, Alabama, Raydio, The Motels, Nicolette Larson, Ali Thomson, Duke Jupiter, and Peter Brown. 60 minutes of musical bliss...or laughs...or the reasons you bought 5 dollar concert tickets...whatever the case, there is no denying that we grew up in a fun musical era!

The fun begins today at 2 PM eastern. Tune in at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and make sure to follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/melrocker65.

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 5/15 PLAYLIST

"Gil's High School Reunion" takes to the Retro Attic Oldies Radio Arena ice today at 2 PM eastern with more of those hits and occasional lost gems that the classes of '78 and '83 will remember well. They will be coming at you faster than goals from the Boston Bruins in the last half of a Game 7's 3rd period! A couple of these may result in your wanting to penalize Gil 2 minutes for roughing up the listeners' ears, but that's a chance he's willing to take(if he played a lot of today's music, he'd probably be given a multi-game suspension!).

Today's playlist also includes a couple of 5 minute jams from '69 and '71 that, even though they fall "outside of the radar," are instantly recognizable classics. The roster includes: Devo, Franke & The Knockouts, Andrew Gold, Creedence Clearwater Revival, 38 Special, Stray Cats, Steve Martin, Paul Davis, Outlaws, Donna Summer, Bob Welch, Grateful Dead, Adam Ant, and Al Stewart.

Tickets to listen are always free, so what are you waiting for(and that includes overtime listening after 3 PM)? Visit us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and groove to tunes that Terry O'Reilly and Ken Dryden once enjoyed on their 8 track players!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 5/8 PLAYLIST

"Gil's High School Reunion" is ready to bring more smiles to your Wednesday workday than those "Have A Nice Day" alarm clocks ever did! The show's 16 choice cuts from 1975-1982 will take you back to those days of long lines at the gas stations and long lines at the record stores; remember when you couldn't wait to dash out of your local record store, get back home with your new album, and cut open the shrink wrap(and bleed all over the place if you weren't careful)?

Featured acts will include Orleans, Blondie, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Diana Ross, Robbie Dupree, Neil Diamond, Nazareth, Silver Convention, Cheap Trick, David Gates, The Bus Boys, Gerry Rafferty, John Stewart, Toby Beau, Karla Bonoff, and Benny Mardones. Unlike our regular rotation, this show will be 80% top 40 and 20% minor/non-charters.

"Gil's High School Reunion" can be heard on The Retro Attic - 50s To 80s Rare Oldies every day from 2 to 3 PM eastern until June 30th(on the 29th, Gil will walk into his 30th reunion party clean-shaven and will probably scare most of his classmates!). Visit us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and return to the days when radio was truly unpredictable!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 5/6 PLAYLIST

"Gil's High School Reunion" returns with an all-new(or is it all-old?) show on Monday at 2 PM eastern, featuring more of those classic early 70's to early 80's artists whose names you wrote down on your brown grocery sack covered textbooks. Or maybe you didn't due to peer pressure or else the radio station you listened to back in the old days never mentioned who the artists were!

The playlist will include Firefall, The Beatles(yes, they had hits during my school days), The Kiki Dee Band, April Wine, KC And The Sunshine Band, Starbuck, Rainbow, Van Halen, Henry Gross, Juice Newton, Jackson Browne, The Marshall Tucker Band, Paul Anka With Odia Coates(no, it's not THAT one - I wouldn't be that cruel on a Monday), Rockets, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, and John Paul Young.

Shampoo with Agree, put on your Right Guard, and then join us upstairs in The Retro Attic as we shower the people with 60 minutes of classic oldies! Plenty of musical lessons await you when you visit us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com.
