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)!

A new "Retro Attic Request Hour" will be airing this Wednesday at noon eastern. If you're an 80's lover, then you will want to tune in; there are also a couple of 70's gems to liven things up even more!

Our latest mystery oldie contest winner, Bill from Connecticut, got to program this hour as his reward. You will hear 16 tracks that are a mix of classics, one hit wonders, and obscurities. The lineup includes Bo Donaldson And The Heywoods, Harlequin, Dr. Hook, Michael Morales, Crystal Gayle, Planet P, The Flirts, Roman Holliday, Diesel, Spider, Van Stephenson, Cliff Richard, Sparks, Rodney Crowell, Tommy James, and The Hollies.

Tune in at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and while you're there, feel free to make a request; you can do so through our voice mail widget, our live chat feature, or by filling out our request form. The deeper the track, the better!

A note to Bill: Stevie Woods and Oxo are already part of our top 40 rotation; Chilliwack and Jimmy Ruffin will be added tomorrow. Tony Carey can be heard on "The American Bottom 45."
