"FLANNEL FREE MUSIC" PLAYLIST FOR 7/31

"Flannel Free Music" will not be on tonight, but instead will return on Wednesday morning the 31st at 11 eastern with an all-new show of tracks from the 90's music scene that tried their best to keep the spirit of the 70's and 80's alive...not to mention that they were also some of DJ Gilbert Matthews' personal favorites! The show will then be repeated next Saturday night at 8 eastern; this is how future shows will air from now on.

Wednesday's show will include the following artists: The Smithereens, Giant, L.A. Guns, Tall Stories, Belinda Carlisle, Matthew Sweet, Rush, The Knack, Wilson Phillips, Shakespear's Sister, Go West, Stryper, Glass Tiger, Jellyfish, Sophie B. Hawkins, Steve Perry, The Human League, Tora Tora, Julian Lennon, and Jude Cole.

Thursday morning ushers in the month of August, which means a new Featured Artist Of The Month on The Retro Attic. It should be a "mighty good" time as we focus on the works of the late Rick Nelson!

Tune in now and in the future at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com.

FLANNEL FREE MUSIC - 7/20 PLAYLIST

Our weekly dose of friendly-sounding pop, alternapop and arena rock from the 90's music scene known as "Flannel Free Music" returns on Saturday night at 8 PM eastern with a repeat airing on the following Wednesday morning at 11 AM eastern. Get ready for nearly 90 minutes of tracks from the following artists:

The Posies - Dada - Patty Smyth - Brother Cane - The Badlees - Alias - Kings Of The Sun - Danger Danger - Michael Penn - Robert Palmer - Firehouse - Toad The Wet Sprocket - The Juliana Hatfield Three - Cheap Trick - Del Amitri - Damn Yankees - The Screaming Jets - Peter Cetera - The Church - Mitch Malloy.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking..."These aren't oldies!" Considering how passe some of these artists' musical stylings are these days, plus the mere fact that in 1977 we considered the 1957 hit "Oh, Boy!" to be an oldie, I think that I'm justified in treating "Flannel Free Music" as a reminiscing type of show. Everything that we once knew is gone; be thankful that someone is still playing these tracks!

Visit us on Saturday night at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and you will soon realize that just like the 50's through the 80's, the early to mid 90's tunage was pretty cool too!

"FLANNEL FREE MUSIC" DEBUTS THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!

The Retro Attic will always continue to have as its main focus the showcasing of 50's to 80's music, but starting this Saturday night(July 13th), a small change will occur. For 60 to 90 minutes every Saturday night, "Flannel Free Music" will present DJ Gilbert Matthews' personal favorites from the 90's that most people will find to be easy on the ears with lyrics that can be understood. The playlists will primarily delve into the world of pop, AOR and classic rock and of course will feature some bands that were mainly known for their 70's and 80's output. My purpose is to bring back those songs that, a lot of the time, didn't get anywhere near as much exposure as those angry-sounding guys from the Seattle bands. Once in a while you may hear me play something that could be interpreted as grunge, but in my opinion was from a band that shouldn't have gotten included in that scene.

Tune in on Saturday night at 8 PM eastern and reacquaint or introduce yourself to tracks from Cry Of Love, The Outfield, Roxette, Sass Jordan, Teenage Fanclub, The Rembrandts, Material Issue, The Brat Pack, Toy Matinee, Bad Company, The Spin Doctors, Heart, Billy Falcon, Ric Ocasek, The Rebel Pebbles, Russ Irwin, World Party, and Styx.

Requests will be accepted for future shows; you can do so by visiting our site at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com. Please do not request anything by Gwar or else I will have to cover you in mud deeper and filthier than what some people encountered at Woodstock '94!
