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 hour. 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 room in the bottom left 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)!

"THE AMERICAN BOTTOM 45" RADIO SHOW

Thank you for all of the feedback concerning a proposed American Bottom 45 radio station! Some people prefer nothing but the familiar oldies, some people prefer mostly the familiar with an occasional lost oldie/wow factor, and some people would be ecstatic with nothing but lost oldies. I would like to try to please everyone(even though Rick Nelson said you couldn't), so this is what I"m going to do:

"The American Bottom 45" will be a daily show beginning on Monday, June 22nd on The Retro Attic. It will air twice a day in 3 hour blocks: one from 1 to 4 PM eastern and the other from 7 to 10 PM eastern. Both blocks will feature different tunes. This way those of you who listen at work will get half a day of top 40 blocks with an occasional lost oldie and half a day of nothing but lost oldies. Those of you who can't listen at work will have the opportunity to hear the evening edition or you can hear both editions during the weekend! So I think I have all potential audiences covered with this scenario, and it will make The Retro Attic more of a total package when it comes to oldies radio!

Just to once again remind you what "The American Bottom 45" will be all about, it will consist of nothing but totally lost oldies...in average listener terms. Qualifying oldies will be ones that peaked between 41 and 100, ones that only appeared on Billboard's Bubbling Under or Cashbox's Looking Ahead charts(some mighty fine records there), or ones that didn't chart at all. Occasionally, interesting records from Canada, the UK, and Australia will also be included. Requests will always be accepted and can be worked into the blocks with no difficulties whatsoever.

I have started a Facebook group page for the show for those who are avid obscure oldies fans/listeners. Get the scoop on tunes I will be adding, make your requests there, and discuss some of your favorite obscurities through videoclips/soundcloud clips! I will also be using that page for taking suggestions for future specialized blocks. Request to join it by going to https://www.facebook.com/groups/theamericanbottom45/
