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)!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 6/24 PLAYLIST

It's reunion week here on The Retro Attic! DJ Gilbert Matthews' 30th high school reunion is coming up on Friday and Saturday, so our daily one hour flashback to the hits of the 70's and early 80's only has around 3 more new shows before the grand finale: an all-day marathon that begins on Saturday at 12 noon eastern!

Today, we look back at the 1971-1984 era with: Honeymoon Suite, Bellamy Brothers, The Modern Lovers(for those who are in love with Massachusetts), Charlie Daniels Band, Corey Hart, M, Prince And The Revolution, Captain & Tennille(one of their top 40 hits, but probably their least-known hit - the AC station in Claremont, NH used to play it quite a bit), Michael Jackson, Huey Lewis And The News, George Harrison, Triumph(this is for you, Lisa!), The Grease Cast, Scandal Featuring Patty Smyth, Boz Scaggs, and Nigel Olsson.

Join "Gil's High School Reunion" today at 2 PM eastern by visiting The Retro Attic at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com. Get ready to rawk, play your fiddle hard, and leave that 9 to 5 up on the shelf. You may want to slow dance too, and as you know whoa whoa whoa whoa, it takes two to tango...

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 6/17 PLAYLIST

It is once again time to be banished to the music room of your old high school or middle school(mine was in the basement at the middle school) between 2 and 3 PM eastern on Monday for another offering of "Gil's High School Reunion!" This may be the most torturous or the most entertaining detention you will ever serve; these 16 tunes will either have you throwing chalk-filled erasers at Gil or propping your feet up on the desk and cranking up your Walkman!

You will hear classics, a couple of obscurities, a guy curling his lip, a couple of numbers that we danced to at Howard Johnson's during 84-85 thanks to cover bands(my classmates will know what I'm talking about), and even a true "oldie but goodie" that Red Sox fans know very well. Monday's roster includes: Billy Idol, Romeo Void, INXS, Kajagoogoo, Kenny Loggins With Steve Perry, Twisted Sister, Tommy Tutone(they're filed under "To" - I used to work with college girls who would file Jethro Tull cassettes under "T"), Billy Thorpe, Bee Gees, Smokie, Stevie Wonder, ABBA, Patrick Hernandez, Dazz Band, Autograph, and The Standells.

"Gil's High School Reunion" can be heard by tuning in at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com. The site also now features Facebook "Recommend" and "Like" buttons for the site and for the station's Facebook page, respectively; if you get a moment, please look for them, click on them, and help spread the word about the show and The Retro Attic through your social network of friends!

The show only has about 2 weeks more to go and will be capped off with a 24 hour marathon that will run from 12 noon eastern on Saturday, June 29th to 12 noon eastern on Sunday, June 30th. A lot of the tunes will end up being moved over to The Retro Attic's regular rotation afterwards.

A big thanks goes out to those who have been checking out the show and the station. More new shows are looming in the near future!

The hour's worth of memories begin at 2 PM eastern on Tuesday and include: Gino Vannelli, Duran Duran, Kool & The Gang, The Human League, Scorpions, Eric Clapton, Ramones, The Beach Boys, Christopher Cross, Peter Frampton, Tesla, The Tubes, Berlin, The Clash, Starz, and Michael Stanley Band.

We have one of the most eclectic oldies rotations out there; whether it hit #3 or #93, whether it was a soon-to-be successful TV show actor, or whether it was a little girl who would one day become a gold medal hockey player, the chances are pretty good that your favorite obscure oldie will be showcased at some point during the day! Thank you for listening!

GIL'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - 6/2 PLAYLIST

It's once again time to take you former high school rebels of the Class Of '73, '78 and '83 back to simpler, yet very trippy times! "Gil's High School Reunion" is ready to rock your Sunday afternoon with a playlist of 70's and early 80's hits that is almost as hot as this New England weekend is!

Get out your Slip N' Slide and while you're cooling down, go on a flashback with the following artists: Alice Cooper, Suzi Quatro And Chris Norman, Leo Sayer, Peaches & Herb, Wet Willie, 10cc, Night, Janis Ian, David Bowie, The Fixx, Naked Eyes, Ozzy Osbourne, Dolly Parton, Men Without Hats, and Red Rider. The fun begins at 2 PM eastern; check us out and tune in at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com.

There are only 4 weeks left before Gil's big day and the end of this show. If you're wondering what The Retro Attic has in store once Gil comes back from his 30th reunion, then dig this: Rod Stewart will be July's "Featured Artist Of The Month," which means you will hear one of his classics, a lesser-known charter, or an album cut once every 60 minutes. Coming on July 13th will be the premiere edition of "Flannel Free Music," a weekly 60 minute show that will play mainstream, catchy and easy-to-understand tunes from the 90's; if you were into artists like Toy Matinee, Material Issue, Spin Doctors, Firehouse, Starclub, Russ Irwin, Mitch Malloy, etc., then you should find this to be enjoyable!

Also hopefully in July will be the launch of a sister station called "The Retro Attic Of Rock(Retro AOR)." It will be devoted to playing nothing but late 60's to early 90's music full of guitars, keyboards, exquisite musicianship, partying attitude, epic song lengths, long hair, rebellion, ridiculous amounts of makeup, and spandex. Whether it was a major label release or an obscure indie, you won't be able to predict what you will hear next!
