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... [in the new time-slot]

Today’s show was our first in our new, later timeslot! We still broadcast on Adelaide’s wonderful, eclectic, independent, all-volunteer, premier music radio station, 3D Radio 93.7fm, every Tuesday, but we have moved... the show now runs from 2pm until 4pm. And for the first time in quite a while, all three ‘DOTS’ (Michael Hunter, Megan Cat & Peter Brat) were together in the studio to present ‘Obscured by...’ and the excitement was palpable! And the music? As always, we presented the rare (e.g. Indonesian psych-rock, the Black Angels new rarities/b-sides compilation on white vinyl), the exclusive (preview from Adelaide band Kamikaze’s new album), the strange (Roy Wood, the Rutles etc) and, of course, the obscure, such as the selection of 60’s German bands, including ‘Inner Space’ who later became ‘Can’, Australian singer Sharon Black who died tragically in 1970 after making a handful of singles, UK prog band ‘Leaf Hound’, plus lots more... here is the playlist...
