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!

RETRO ATTIC POTENTIAL SHUTDOWN IS NOVEMBER 30TH

The Retro Attic may be shutting down at the end of November. If you would like to prevent this from happening, then please look at the thermometer on our webpage. I have a small monthly goal that would only take around 20 people to help achieve it. If you want something more than just showing your genuine appreciation for what I do, then check out the VIP membership deals. They are more than reasonable and give you a great opportunity to get proactive with the programming. The deadline is November 30th.

I can't be doing this for free anymore. If you want me to put in the man hours to compile an occasional special show, theme blocks, and a Featured Artist Of The Month, then I need some help. Taking out Facebook and Google ads, having the Now Playing/Recently Played widget, having the station be Alexa enabled, having metadata show up on Tunein, having the songs post on Twitter, and of course having the server...yes, these things cost a few bucks.

It has been pretty quiet lately. I know it's hard to compete with the Spotifys and SiriusXMs of the world, but I'm doing my best. It's just hard to stay motivated when you hear nothing but the sound of chirping crickets.

I don't want to shut down, and I know there are at least a few of you out there who don't want me to shut down either. As The New Colony Six once sang: "Please don't ever let that happen."

10/26/18 SONG OF THE DAY!

SONG OF THE DAY! Bread - Mother Freedom. Debuted on American Top 40 on 8/14/71 at #39, jumped to #37 the following week, and then it was toast. People were expecting nothing but soft rock from these guys, but quite honestly, I liked the change of pace. If I had been a field rep for Elektra, I would have pushed for "Down On My Knees" to be a hit. "Mother Freedom" lives on at The Retro Attic, where it's never a dismal day for oldies music!
