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)!

FINAL FORMAT CHANGE COMING IN THE FALL

It looks like it's time for me to heed the advice of some fellow radio nuts in an Internet Radio Broadcasting Facebook group that I belong to. Apparently most people who listen to classic rock and/or oldies radio want to hear songs that, for the most part, they are familiar with. An occasional "wow" factor is okay, but if you primarily base your station on material that only a hardcore record collector would know, then your station will never build a significant audience.

It's going to take me the rest of the summer to do it, but The Retro Attic will eventually be formatted so that classic and lost top 40 hits from the 50's through the 80's will make up the majority of the programming day. 2 hours of each day will be devoted to songs from these decades that hit the bottom half of the charts or didn't chart at all(and each day, these 2 hours will be totally different!). There will still be a Featured Artist Of The Month heard once an hour, but only during the other 22 hours of the day. Requests will always be accepted.

I will admit that I have programmed my station during the past 3 years with primary emphasis on what I want to play, and that was apparently not the correct way of thinking. Whatever it takes, I will make The Retro Attic one of your ideal choices for oldies music. If you have any comments, then please feel free to submit them; I need to start listening to YOU, not me!
