We play the classic top 40 hits and the lost hits, but we also place a heavy emphasis on the minor charters and non-charters...or as we call them, bottom 45's. Special shows will be announced as time permits. If you have a request or a suggestion or just want to say hi, then please use our chat widget in the lower right corner. There is also a song request form below on the right sidebar.

If you appreciate what we do, then please make use of our PayPal buttons on the site. You can donate a one-time amount or choose from 10 monthly subscription amounts; the donations will help enhance our programming and keep us on respected broadcasting platforms like Mixcloud and Live365.

A Live365 stream will be launched during the first week of November. Please show your support! For a donation of $15.00 a month, you will get the following perks:

Your own 2 hour theme block every other month(all Motown, all teen idols, all psychedelic rock, etc.)


A progress thermometer can be found below the Paypal buttons. If there isn't enough interest shown by the end of 2019, then I will need to shut down this station and switch to being exclusively a once-in-a-while podcaster. It's up to you!

"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/
