DJ Gilbert Matthews welcomes you to "Awfully Awesome 80's," a 24/7 internet radio station whose main goal is to play every tune that appeared on MTV's playlist between August of 1981 and December of 1989! We will also include lost and classic top 40 hits from the entire decade as well as tunes that aired on MTV's specialized shows such as "Headbanger's Ball," "120 Minutes," "The Basement Tapes," etc. 80's tunes that never had videos or that only aired on non-MTV outlets such as WTBS Night Tracks, VH-1, BET, HBO Video Jukebox, etc. will also be eligible! Every hour, you will hear either 3 or 4 80's "Bottom 45's," which means tunes that peaked south of the top 40, tunes that didn't chart at all, or tunes that only charted in Canada, the UK or Australia. Requests are always accepted! When it comes to "Awfully Awesome 80's," too much 80's is definitely never enough!

POTENTIAL CLOSING OF AWFULLY AWESOME 80'S ON 2/28?

Unless things drastically turn around in the next several days, The Retro Attic and Awfully Awesome 80's will be shutting their doors at 11 PM eastern on February 28th. It's just not possible for me to continue dealing with a higher licensing cost if I'm taking care of 2/3 to 3/4 of the operating costs every month.

It's not out of the question that I could return one day, and it's also quite possible that I could be back in the short term as an occasional podcaster.

If you can help these stations to survive, then please get in touch with me.
