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)!

50's AND 80's MATERIAL RETURNING TO THE RETRO ATTIC IN FEBRUARY!

50's and 80's material will be returning to The Retro Attic during the first week of February! The reason is simple: ASCAP is requiring the company that I license my stream with to collect fees on each unique station that is in their directory, so there is no way that I can afford to launch a separate 50's station and a separate 80's station.

I'm looking at doing an hour of 50's "Malted Memories" on Friday nights beginning on 2/5 and two hours of "Awfully Awesome 80's" on Saturday nights beginning on 2/6. Each show will feature lost and classic top 40 hits with at least 1 "bottom 45" included. So everything will be "under one roof," but the Retro Attic's main emphasis will continue to be 60's and 70's.

I apologize for these sudden changes in format, but the mess with the recent royalty rate changes has caused many of us small-time broadcasters to rethink our strategies...and in a lot of cases, just hang up the headphones and call it a day. I refuse to give up, and I greatly appreciate those of you who are helping to keep me on the air!

Join The Retro Attic's Facebook group at http://facebook.com/groups/retroatticrareoldiesradio and make your requests for the upcoming 50's and 80's shows(and to be notified of the start times!). And keep those 60's and 70's request coming in! Where else can you hear "Convoy" and the theme to "The Rat Race" sandwiched in between a Doors and a Beatles classic?
