Here is the upcoming schedule of shows for "The American Bottom 45" on The Retro Attic for September:
Saturday 9/5: Bottom 45s From The 70's. New adds will include Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Brady Bunch, Sugarloaf, Cherie & Marie Currie, Sutherland Brothers And Quiver, Stillwater, Jamul, etc. Get your requests in now!
Saturday 9/12: Adult Contemporary/Easy Listening #1s That Never Made The Top 40(Along With Some That Did). There were only a select few that totally qualified for AB45, so I will break the rules this time and add in a few bonafide crossover hits to make this show more complete. Let's face it, the soft rock that most of us knew and loved is almost non-existent on oldies radio these days; it will be back on the 12th!
Saturday 9/19: Awfully Awesome Eighties. This will be another preview of my upcoming 3rd station that focuses mainly on those MTV bands that didn't quite make it. The station will include a lot of MTV hits, but this 9/19 show puts the spotlight on minor charters and non-charters(Kings Of The Sun, Total Coelo, Box Of Frogs, The Screaming Tribesmen, Headpins, etc.).
Saturday 9/26: 60's-80's Artists Who Had At Least Two Chart Entries, But Never Hit The Top 40. One example would be a highly revered 80's AOR band that gave Eddie Money a top 10 hit.

These shows will be made available on Mixcloud. And speaking of Mixcloud, there will also be some AB45 exclusives on there...the top 15 bottom 45s for this week in ____. Even bottom 45s deserve some love, and now they can feel like they were popular after all! This will be a cool way to kick back for 45 to 60 minutes! Details will be coming soon; please feel free to follow me at http://mixcloud.com/gilbert-matthews so that you can get notified about my upcoming uploads.
Today is All Request Day in the AB45 group for airplay on The Retro Attic, so if you have a favorite minor charter or non-charter that you would like to hear, then pass it along!
