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

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

Ban a specific song from the rotation for 1 month

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!

NEW "AMERICAN BOTTOM 45" ADDS/THIS SATURDAY NIGHT'S SHOW

It's time for some new adds to The Retro Attic's "American Bottom 45" rotation(3 U.S. minor or non-charters every hour):

1. The Robbs - Last Of The Wine - '70 - very similar to The Grass Roots - why these guys didn't have at least 1 Hot 100 entry is very mind-boggling.
2. Debbie Harry - French Kissin - '86
3. Bros - When Will I Be Famous? - '88
4. Tyrannosaurus Rex - Ride A White Swan - '71
5. Sylvia(Kirby) - Snapshot - '83
6. Christie - San Bernadino - '71
7. Donald Fagen - New Frontier - '83
8. Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good - '84
9. Lil Louis - French Kiss - '89 - the vocal version with Shawn Christopher
10. Conductor - Voice On The Radio - '82 - forgotten AOR
11. Evelyn Thomas - High Energy - '84 - the original UK version

If you've missed the good old days of adult contemporary(or MOR, easy listening, soft rock, westcoast, yacht rock...you get the idea), then this Saturday night's AB45 show will be for you! It will be a 3 hour mix of 60's-80's AC #1's that either didn't cross over to the pop top 40 or had no problem getting in whatsoever. Anne Murray, Orsa Lia, Helen Reddy, Edward Bear, J.D. Souther...they and many others will make the cut!
