Thanks for stopping by! The Retro Attic is your 24/7 listener-supported internet radio guide to the mid 50's through the 70's. We play lost and classic top 40 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.

Please feel free to ask how you can reserve a 2, 4, 6 or 8 hour block with a playlist of your favorites! Hardly anyone else is willing to offer this service!

The Retro Attic is officially on Live 365 as of February 4, 2020. For a donation of $5.00 a month(cheaper than Spotify, SiriusXM, and the cost of your monthly beverages), you will get the below perks. If you think that I'm doing a stellar job, then feel free to donate more. But just remember that this is a legitimate station and it does have monthly expenses to meet; I am also very passionate and serious about the music I program!


Unlimited listening

5 requests per day(50's-70's charting or non-charting singles only)

Coming up on 8/29 will be a "We Had Clunkers Too!" edition of AB45. For 3 hours, you will hear some of the bigger names of the rock and roll era and some of their lesser-known, unsuccessful charters; examples could include The Beatles' "I'm Down," The Rolling Stones' "What A Shame," The Monkees' "A Man Without A Dream," The Bee Gees' "You Win Again," The Doors' "Tightrope Ride," etc.

If you thought that the so-called awful was indeed awesome, then please join our Facebook group at http://facebook.com/groups/theamericanbottom45. It doesn't matter whether it charted at #3 or #93; in our group, rock and roll lives and breathes in the hearts of the young(yes, that's a nod to #29 above!)!
