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(returning in June 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)!

"GUESS THE MYSTERY OLDIE" REGULAR CONTEST!

If you have ever wanted to listen to an oldies station that will air an hour's worth of your requests, then The Retro Attic has an offer that is fun and unique! Starting today and continuing on a regular basis, our webpage has a new feature called "Guess The Mystery Oldie." You will find it just below our Google calendar. Click on the "stack of 45s" picture and give it a listen!

The first person to guess the artist and song title correctly will get to submit a request list for an upcoming noontime request hour show! You can submit your guesses to DJ Gilbert Matthews through the live chat feature on our webpage or here on Facebook.

I can warn you that these mystery oldies won't be easy. You will never hear me play a clip of overplayed chestnuts such as "Sugar Sugar" or "Honky Tonk Women!" I am confident that some people out there will know these as I have seen many instances in Facebook groups where people have a great deal of chart knowledge! And I'm also being somewhat generous with the clip(for example, 7 seconds today as opposed to 1 or 2 notes)!

Anyways, best of luck to you! If something like this doesn't draw in new listeners, then I don't know what will! Our webpage is located at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com. I have also taped a promo for this "contest" that will air on the station from time to time.

Also, the 5 song blocks for 1985, 1987 and 1988 that I mentioned a couple of days ago will be airing sometime this afternoon. Sonny And Cher will be our Featured Artist Of The Month in June, and that will include Cher solo(lots of tunes that you don't hear at all anymore!)!
