SPINOFF STATIONS FOR THE RETRO ATTIC ARE POSSIBLE, BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!

Thank you to all of my listeners who are keeping The Retro Attic afloat in 2016! I look forward to bringing you more of the best and eclectic oldies from the 60's and 70's and fulfilling all of your requests; judging by your requests, I would say that a lot of top 40 hits from these 2 decades are being severely neglected these days.

I'm going to lay out a proposal for potential listeners who are more into 80's music, 50's music, and melodic rock/hard rock/classic rock/heavy metal. In 2015, I could add multiple stations to my stream licensing account and my monthly royalty invoice would be based on the total listening hours for all stations combined. In 2016, ASCAP is requiring an extra $20.00 per month for each additional station that a broadcaster wants to add to his/her account. If 1 to 5 listeners could pitch in 5 to 20 dollars a month, then I would be more than happy to bring back the following stations. I will deliver the content, and trust me, you will be hard pressed to find radio stations that will play these formats if internet radio gets totally wiped off of the map:

AWFULLY AWESOME 80'S: Nothing but 80's music, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each hour would feature top 40 hits with 1 "bottom 45(minor charter, non-charter, or overseas charter)" included for that "wow factor," even though some people would tell you that some of the top 40 I pick would also fit the bill! I would save the weekends for some special features, such as headbanging classics, 2 hours of new wave, 2 hours of 80's soundtrack tunes, a westcoast showcase, etc.

RETRO AOR(THE RETRO ATTIC OF ROCK): All rock, all the time! Classic rock from the 60's, 70's and 80's...all of those indie and major label hair bands from the 80's and 90's...psychedelia...space rock...stoner metal...90's grunge/alternarock...modern day bands that are keeping the spirit of the old days alive.

MALTED MEMORIES: A continuous 50's sock hop with some occasional forays to the end of '63. Crooners, doo wop, rockabilly, lounge jazz, classic hits, records on small labels that came and went. I understand that this genre is barely being represented now, and I would love to help out!

Mini versions of Awfully Awesome 80's and Malted Memories will be airing on The Retro Attic every weekend starting on the weekend of February 5th and will continue regardless of whether anyone pitches in to help make the above stations a reality.

If you would like to help out, then please visit The Retro Attic's webpage at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and look for our Paypal logo. Paypal gives you the opportunity to sign up for a monthly subscription, or you can make a one-time donation. I will be available through the webpage's live chat feature if you need a further explanation on why it's so tough to start up new stations these days!

The Retro Attic's Featured Artist Of The Month for February will be Tommy James And The Shondells. Once an hour, every hour, we will showcase one of their/his hits, misses or album tracks from the early 60's through the early 80's! If you were a fan of their feel-good pop, bubblegum or quasi-psychedelia, then you will be in "Hog Heaven(pun intended)!"

As always, I'm taking your requests! As Ed, Steve, Atticus, Dana, Gary, Sam, etc. will attest, I'm pretty sure that my fulfillment batting average is 1.000 so far! So whether you have a 60's/70's fave that hit #3, #93 or one that never made it past the Carolina beach market, then feel free to give us a try by filling out our webpage's song request form or contacting me, DJ Gilbert Matthews, through the webpage's live chat feature.
