Donate  The thieves at Sound Exchange are now taking a lot of money from us even though most of the artists/groups we play are three sheets to the wind or deceased, and will never receive the money we pay to help them.  Hence, this Donate button (though it says Paypal, credit card payments are fine.  After clicking, just scroll down a little to see the CC option).
Thank you

Chat Links

Browser Chat (the easy way to chat)

mIRC software chat

Mibbit chat is still here. However, it's now your 2nd choice, but only if you enjoy ads for Russian wives and fake Viagra. The other chat link is ad free, is preferred, and it's so easy.  Just fill in your chatname and click Start.

If that link doesn't work (it's happened), the second link always works.

CHAT LINK 1

For you masochists, who like Mibbit chat, here's your link. Management (that's me) recommends an adblocker.  If you're using Chrome, install this one.

CHAT LINK 2 (MIBBIT)

If you use something other than mIRC, the server we use is irc.mibbit.com and the chatroom name is #topshelf.  If you need help, our own Ramtown Mike has prepared a Youtube instructional video for setting up Mirc.  It's just below the servers.  You can do it!!!

Richard Sibello

The Richard Sibello Music Bordello
5-8P

This is where the greatest records of all time reside, ALL the time, and we invite you to set a spell, relax and join in every Tuesday from 5 to 8 PM. Notice I didn't say the greatest HITS - it didn't have to be a hit to be great, just like it didn't have to be great to be a hit! Host Richard Sibello plays everything, from the sublime to the ridiculous, from his collection of over 25,000 records. He also tells the untold stories of rock and roll (are there any LEFT??) and segues semi-smoothly from genre to genre, as long as it's from the 50s, 60s and early 70s. Plus the last Tuesday of every month is a CLASSIC SOUL BLOWOUT, featuring nothing but the greatest in classic soul and R&B for three hours straight!! Best of all, you won't need penicillin after visiting THIS bordello!!

Lee Michael Demsey & the DC Dynamos

The Time Machine
8-11P (check calendar for different hosts)

The Time Machine is hard to define. As the name tells you, we take you forward and backward in time, but that's just part of the equation. With ten differt hosts, everyone has a different approach, but we're all trying to do the same thing, keep you entertained with the best tunes we can find, usually the more obscure the better. However,  we try to mix in some songs you might know, but haven't grown tired of. Based out of suburban Washington, the DC Dynamos aim to please, and we like to think we hit the bulls-eye more often that not.

Alex Galbraith

The Platter Party
Alternating with two other hosts.  Thursday 8-11P (check calendar)

Alex plays mostly music from the mid 50's to the mid 60's. The show is filled with Teeners, Rock'n'Roll, DooWop, Girl Groups, Instrumentals, Surf,  Rockabilly and phone in requests. Add to the music a few TV themes and radio jingles of the day along with old time commercials . All in all, it's a nostalgic trip into the past with rare tunes never played on the radio.

Vic Trola
Off the Record with Vic Trola
Alternating with two other hosts.  Thursday 8-11P (check calendar)

Spend some time with Vic Trola, as he takes you “Off The Record”. A collector since his teens, “The Vic” is hopelessly engulfed in the under-played and never played songs of the '50s, 60s and beyond!  For many years he has championed the rare and obscure sides from his [still] growing collection.  “Off The Record” is anything but predictable, and The Vic wouldn’t have it any other way.  His easy-going manner will keep you listening and wondering “what’s next".

Clarke Davis
The Clarke Davis Experience
Alternating with two other hosts.  Thursday 8-11P (check calendar)

The Clarke Davis Experience is a mixture of music, commentary and opinion.  Music provides a broader sense of enjoyment when presented in context.  Rather than just random selections, Clarke Davis seeks to provide another layer of understanding to the music.    Comments about the song, artist or location are coupled with respect for the production itself help you to enjoy the experience further, the Clarke Davis Experience.  

Clarke loves music and enjoys sharing his musical discoveries with you.  Please join him for a fun visit during his show on Top Shelf Oldies.  You can expect a world wide perspective with a wide assortment of musical styles.  Each selection is hand picked to provide pleasure and perhaps just a bit of expansion of musical horizon to the listener.

Berton Averre

Hullabadig Au Go Go
8-10P

So many great songs from the Sixties have not been given their due. I'm thrilled to add myself to the list of Rock Archaeologists at TopShelf Oldies, and I'll be unearthing my favorite hidden gems and bringing them to you every Saturday night at 8P Eastern, 5P Pacific.  If you love the Sixties as much as I do, you'll want to tune in.

Johnny G

Vinyl Treasures
10-12M but always longer

For the first three or four Saturdays of the month, I feature vocal group harmony and R&B at its best from the 50's & early 60's   I also play Rock n' Roll, Teeners, Soul, & a little Rock-a-billy!  On the last Saturday of the month, I spin music primarily from 1964 through 1969.  All the music comes directly from rare original 45's, as I have over 150,000 records in my collection.  You can even watch me spin these 45's live by clicking on the Live Video Stream link on the right and watch or hear archived shows by choosing those links.

Dave The Rave

Relics and Rarities
9-12M

I have a music library of over 500,000 songs including 100,000 plus original 45's, many rare that sound great and leave you wondering how they never became hits. Relics & Rarities on Topshelf Oldies is the most fun for me because I have total freedom to play whatever sounds good with no restrictions.  Combining the many lost 45 gems with cool hits has been the formula for Relics & Rarities since February 1996 when this show first aired on WPDQ. Relics & Rarities also played to a national audience on XM, and is currently heard in several markets through syndication.
