Thanks for stopping by! The Retro Attic is your 24/7 internet radio guide to the mid 50's through the 70's. 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:


Unlimited listening

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" - AUGUST 8TH SHOW

Are you ready to take a 3 hour tour of the other side of the oldies charts? If so, then "The American Bottom 45" is ready to go for this Saturday night, August 8th, from 7 to 10 PM eastern! You will hear nothing but records from the mid 50's through the end of the 80's that peaked between 41 and 100 as well as a couple that either bubbled under or didn't chart at all.

There will be some special features:

1. An hour of tracks that "knocked on the door" or "were close, but no cigar" - in other words, they peaked at #41 - 19 tracks in all!

2. The top 5 bottom 45s from this week in 1978. This will include a seldom-heard single edit.

3. "Gil's Gilty Pleasure" - DJ Gilbert Matthews' personal choice for favorite bottom 45 of the week. It will be a minor-charting psychedelic monster from '68 on the Uni label that was just as powerful in its full-length stereo version as it was in its edited mono single version.

There will also be 30 other assorted bottom 45s. If I get any listener requests, then some of them will simply be bumped to next week's show.

Join the show's Facebook group at http://facebook.com/groups/theamericanbottom45, where I will be on Saturday night to monitor comments and requests. Tune into the show at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com or search for The Retro Attic on Tunein.com, Nobex Radio(where you can download 1 of our 4 free mobile apps), or ITunes Radio in their "Golden Oldies" category. Let's get lost on Saturday night!
