COMING IN JANUARY 2014


By the time 2014 begins, there will be 4 new weekly 1-hour shows debuting on The Retro Attic that will be refreshing additions to our normal regular rotation of oldies and our Featured Artist Of The Month:

1. MALTED MEMORIES - Obscurities from the 50's, with the main goal being to showcase approximately 90% non-charters. Everything from Brunswick, Cadence, Roulette, ABC-Paramount, etc. will be dug out. This will air on Thursday nights.

2. FUZZY FLASHBACKS - My favorite garage and psych cuts from the 60's. Everything from small, regional labels to nationally-known, major-label acts will be heard. This will air on Friday nights.

3. SOOTHING 70'S - Soft rock/adult contemporary tunes from the 70's, concentrating on those that you don't hear every day. This will air on Saturday nights.

4. TOO MUCH OF THE 80'S IS NEVER ENOUGH! - Lesser-known 80's gems that you may remember first seeing/hearing on a certain music video channel. I especially liked those that only received light video rotation; in other words, you had to stay up overnight in order to see/hear them! This will air on Sunday nights.

The primary purpose of these shows will be to showcase songs that aren't heard in our regular rotation. One of these shows should be ready to go by the end of 2013, and I will be sure to let you know when it's ready!

I'm also planning on doing a podcast beginning in January that will focus on tunes that will cater to a specific type of audience; it's a genre of music that I've been a big fan of for 30 years. That announcement will be coming soon!

The Retro Attic's Featured Artist Of The Month for November will be The Beach Boys. Whether it was a #1 smash or a bubbling under entry, you will hear it here; from "Sail On Sailor" to "Getcha Back" to "It's O.K.," there will be no surf too rough for us to tackle! We'll even look back at that Dennis Wilson solo album that at one time was a high-demand CD during the golden era of Flea Bay; it was one of those few titles that I never encountered during my many junking trips in the south! In December, The Retro Attic will "Monkee around" - this works out well as those guys cut a couple of holiday-related numbers that I can easily throw in to their mix.
