Three D Radio announcer, Megan Cat (up until recently with her husband, the late Peter Brat) lives in "The BratHaus" a rural seaside home about 100km from Adelaide on South Australia's scenic Fleurieu Peninsula.
Veteran musician Peter, and artist/musician Megan, were long-time DJs on Three D Radio 93.7fm
, Adelaide's eclectic independent music station.
Together Peter & Megan, known as "The Cat and The Brat" created this blog to allow listeners to review the playlists of their radio show, "Technicolour Dreaming" , watch clips of selected songs and simply join them in the enjoyment of their favourite music... psychedelia, 60's garage,
surf, punk/post-punk, pop, folk-rock, glam, 'Krautrock', goth, 80's electro... and much more!
But The Cat is carrying on the tradition, with guest co-presenters, and "Technicolour Dreaming" will continue in the same format, drawing from the huge "Cat & Brat" music collection, with the addition of new releases and reissues to keep things current. The Brat is hugely missed, but the show must go on, as he wanted...

Obscured By... 26/04/11

Michael Hunter was this week’s single ‘dot’ since the Cat and the Brat had “transport issues” getting into 3D Radio from their country abode... hopefully the soon-to-be-announced time-slot change will prove to be more conducive to multiple ‘dots’ presenting the show... but more about that in coming weeks! He featured the usual mix of rarities, including one from ‘Those Shocking Shaking Days’, a new compilation of 60’s Indonesian beat groups, as well as one from the ‘Turkish Freakout’ comp. of 60’s and 70’s bands, plus rare Australian singles from the same era and lots more...
