THE GREATEST VARIETY OF HITS AND RARITIES FROM THE MID 50'S THROUGH THE 70'S!
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:
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!

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!
