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 November 2017). 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)!

NO SPECIALIZED SHOWS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Retro Attic will spend July doing what it usually does: playing mostly seldom-heard records from the 50's through the 80's with occasional dashes of top 40 hits. Requests are always accepted through our webpage's form or through our Facebook fan and group pages(just go to Facebook and search for "The Retro Attic" - you will see 2 listings).

Due to my current limited spare time and limited listener response to them, I won't be doing any specialized shows until further notice. Realistically, the only thing I can see happening by the end of the summer is a rotating 4 hour block on Saturday nights. In other words, one Saturday night would feature 60's top 40 hits, the next Saturday would feature 70's top 40 hits, the next Saturday would feature songs that were played during MTV's first year, etc. These would strictly be music blocks with no commentary.

I can only put together specialized shows and dedicate more time to the station with your help. If you are a loyal supporter of my oldies vision, then please consider making a small donation through our webpage. There are a couple of perks involved when you donate a specific amount; just look for our Paypal button toward the top of this webpage for more information.

"GIL'S GILTIEST PLEASURES OF THE 70'S" - TOP 100 COUNTDOWN SPECIAL - VOTE IN OUR POLLS!

Sometime in early September, The Retro Attic will be doing a top 100 countdown special called "Gil's Giltiest Pleasures Of The 70's." You will hear nothing but lost oldies from that decade, whether they hit #3 or #93! I need your help in determining the countdown. Over the next several weeks, I will divide 100 selections into poll groups, complete with Youtube clips in case you forgot what these songs sound like. Group A is up now and is open until next Friday, July 4th. Vote for as many and as often as you like!

The poll can be found on this page just above our "Recent Tracks Played" widget.

NINE FROM THE NINETIES - 6/25/14 EDITION

The Retro Attic rolls out another edition of "Nine From The Nineties" today at 2 PM eastern! If you're expecting to hear a song about a kid named Jeremy or you're hoping that Radiohead leave you high and dry, then this show will greatly disappoint you! In this show, we play selections from the pop and AOR genres that, for the most part, were ignored by the masses. Artists featured include The Pursuit Of Happiness, Tesla, Material Issue, Timothy B. Schmit, Warrant, Crowded House, Billy Falcon, McAuley Schenker Group, and Mitch Malloy. You can hear it through our Stream Licensing player by going to http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com/ or you can search for The Retro Attic in ITunes Radio or Tunein.com. We also take requests for future editions through our website.
