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(hopefully returning in May 2019). 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)!

THE RETRO ATTIC IN APRIL/FUTURE FEATURED ARTISTS OF THE MONTH

Our Featured Artist Of The Month will be taking a break during April. I have some vacation time coming, and I need to take a little breather and explore some future career options. I also want to mainly focus during April on creating a few Mixcloud shows.

Here are the upcoming Featured Artists Of The Month for the rest of the spring and summer:

May - Earth, Wind And Fire
June - The Monkees(to celebrate "Good Times," their first new album in 20 years...and more than likely, their last!)
July - Electric Light Orchestra
August - Todd Rundgren(including Nazz, Runt and Utopia)
September - Eric Clapton(including Cream, Derek/Dominos, etc.)

I also threw in some new adds today, such as Bloodrock, Consumer Rapport, Small Faces, Dennis Coffey And The Detroit Guitar Band, Bobby Vinton, etc.

Visit The Retro Attic at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and let's talk about oldies in the chat room!

"RETRO ATTIC COVERS HOUR" AIRS TODAY!

Join us today at 1 PM eastern for The Retro Attic Covers Hour, a collection of classic and obscure cover tunes from the 60's, 70's and early 80's! This special came about per the suggestion of one of our VIP members. If you would like to become a VIP member and request a 1 hour theme of your own, then please contact DJ Gilbert Matthews through the chat room at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com and he will tell you how.

The Retro Attic can also be found on Tunein.com, Nobex Radio, ITunes Radio in their Golden Oldies category, Reciva Radio, etc. We also have a Facebook group at http://facebook.com/groups/retroatticrareoldiesradio.

The next special in the pipeline(another VIP member's request) will be an album rock showcase of the late 60's and early 70's. You might say this will be a salute to the old underground FM days! Each track's length will range from 5 to 12 minutes.

In the meantime, give us a listen if you like a cool variety of 60's and 70's top 40 and bottom 45's with an occasional dash of late 50's and early 80's. We will admit to having some of those "burned out oldies," but we take pride in our "wow" selections and fulfilling every challenging request! We hope to see you soon!
