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!
