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)!

MAY 2015 FEATURED ARTIST OF THE MONTH

The request lines are now open! Whether you call 617-520-4046, use our website's live chat bubble in the top right corner, use our website's request form, or leave a Facebook comment, we will receive it one way or another! We strongly encourage you to request an oldie from 1957-1989 that you don't hear every day(or even once a month)!

Our May Featured Artist Of The Month will be The J. Geils Band. Once an hour, every hour beginning on this coming Friday afternoon, you will hear one of their party anthems, a chart hit or miss, a track from Bluestime, or a track from Peter Wolf's solo career.

Come back(baby! - sorry, couldn't resist) to the lost and classic sounds of radio when you visit The Retro Attic at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com!

NEW BLOCKS FOR 4/20/THEME FOR FIRST "AMERICAN BOTTOM 45" SHOW

The following blocks are being added tonight on The Retro Attic:

1964: Manfred Mann/Bobby Bland/The Dixie Cups/Stevie Wonder/Valerie & Nick(lost oldie)

1982: Kim Carnes/Buckner & Garcia/Dan Fogelberg/Eye To Eye/Chilliwack(lost oldie)

1986: Starship/Robert Tepper/Oran Juice Jones/Hooters/GTR(lost oldie)

And as usual, the lost oldie in each block will contain some useful(and some might say useless) info from me!

I have decided that the first American Bottom 45 show coming next month will be a special 2 hour show dedicated to nothing but minor charters and non-charters from 1983. So if you have a favorite non-top 40 oldie or an obscure MTV favorite from 1983 that you would like included in the show, then please drop me a suggestion either through Facebook or at my site of http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com. Don't be afraid to try, especially considering that '83 holds a special place in my musical heart!

We are on Itunes Radio(Golden Oldies), Blackberry World, Google Play, Windows Phone, Tunein.com and many of the major internet radio directories. Eventually, each day's programming will be entirely different and you will have to wait for nearly a week and a half before hearing a block get repeated. This vision takes time to build, but in the end, it will really be worth it!

NEW BLOCKS FOR 1957/1960/1980 AND THE AMERICAN BOTTOM 45

The following new blocks will be added to The Retro Attic's rotation later on this afternoon. As a reminder, each block contains 4 top 40 hits and 1 lost oldie(peaked between 41 and 100, bubbled under/looked ahead, didn't chart at all, or was only an overseas hit):

1957: Joe Bennett And The Sparkletones/The Bobbettes/The Four Lads/Dale Hawkins/Dale Cook(lost oldie).

1960: Johnny Preston/Jimmy Charles/June Valli/Little Willie John/Paul Chaplain And His Emeralds(lost oldie).

1980: Andy Gibb/Michael Stanley Band/Natalie Cole/Ali Thomson/The Skids(lost oldie).

Coming in May will be the resurrection of "The American Bottom 45." This will be a 1 hour show that will play nothing but lost oldies(just like the description above) from a specific year. More details will be coming soon!
