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 January 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)!

RICK NELSON/NEW ADDS/WE'RE ON NOKIA!

As you probably already know, Rick Nelson is our August Artist Of The Month. Granted, he didn't have very many chart singles during the 70's, but in my personal opinion, many of the non-charting singles he released during that decade were better than "Palace Guard," "Life," and even "Garden Party." I especially like '71's "Gypsy Pilot." If you were/are a big fan of his, then what overlooked platters were your faves?

Some of our new regular rotation adds this week include Pearl Bailey, The Blendtones, Fallen Angels(they would later become late 70's rockers Starz), John Kilzer, Fandango, Les Emmerson, Tommy Page, Barclay James Harvest, Betty Harris, George McCurn, Kerry Livgren, The Ardells, Locomotiv GT, Alice Wonder Land, The Treniers, Michael Morales, Billy Storm, The Fabulous Continentals, Bill Quateman, Johnny Paycheck, Blue Cheer, The Brandos, Living Colour, and Tommy Shaw. Where else are you going to hear a mix like this?

If you have a Nokia device, you may be delighted to hear that The Retro Attic can now be found on their directory.

August Update

New adds so far in August include The Archies, The Barbusters, The Beatles, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, Cher, Dokken, Donna Fargo, Freddy Fender, Gallery, The Goodees, Dickie Goodman, Heart, Bruce Hornsby And The Range, Margie Joseph, Bob Seger, Spirit, Rod Stewart, Henry Lee Summer, The Sunshine Company, Tangier, U2, Gene Vincent And His Blue Caps, The What's New, Tony Joe White, and Paul Hucklebuck Williams. There will be plenty more to come, and as always, requests are accepted through our site's request form!

All of Rick Nelson's Hot 100 charters and bubblers are currently being showcased while he's our Artist Of The Month. During the second half of August, there will be some singles added from the late 60's and the 70's that were non-charters.

Speaking of our Artist Of The Month, I think it's safe to say that The Beach Boys will be one of the artists featured sometime between October and December. Help solidify the other two months by voting in our site's poll!

There will be no more Flannel Free Music shows. I had it on for 4 weeks and hardly anyone was listening to it. I promote my station as playing 50's to 80's oldies, so it was probably too much of a curveball to play 90's music. The Forgotten Five, The American Bottom 45, and Retro AOR will continue to be developed as they definitely fit in with the theme of the station.

Take yourself to where the action is by visiting us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com. Thanks for listening!
