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(returning in June 2019!). 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 - 6/17 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!
