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)!

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!)!
