After 3 years, The Retro Attic says goodbye to Shoutcast and hello to Icecast! Beginning on Saturday 8/16, The Retro Attic will have a new streaming host provider. We will be spending the next few days revamping our playlists; you may hear several repeats at first, but before you know it, the variety that you've come to know from us will be back and better than ever!
One of our listeners pointed out that playing only one forgotten oldie every 45 minutes makes us lose what originally made us unique among oldies stations. With this provider change, we can announce that both sectors of our audience will be happy; we will continue to focus primarily on classic and lost top 40 hits from the 50's through the 80's, but there will now be 4 forgotten oldies played every 45 minutes! And for those who mainly love the obscure side of the charts, we will be bringing back an American Bottom 45 countdown show in the near future(visit our website or join our Facebook group to keep posted on when the first show will air).
Join us on Saturday night, 8/23 from 7 to 9 eastern as we present a block of tunes that were showcased on MTV during August of 1981. Needless to say, it will be a mix of the familiar and obscure! Feel free to contact us and make a request for the block if you know your MTV history well!
Our website is located at retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and our Facebook group can be found at http://facebook.com/groups/retroatticrareoldiesradio. Thanks go out to our past and present listeners and we look forward to seeing many new listeners in the coming weeks!
