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... July 12 2011

A solo Michael Hunter this week, but then again not.  For the special in-studio guest was Peter Tilbrook, ex-Masters Apprentices, who dropped a couple of scoops including a potential reformation of a 60s line-up of the band, plus his writing of a musical on the arrival of rock & roll in Australia!  Pre-Masters songs from his earlier bands were also played.  Then there was a fortuitous dip into the "X" section of the Three D record library, some rare UK acetate singles from the 60s, a French version of Friday On My Mind - and a James Last track and a German version of El Paso, just to keep the quality level variable!!  Yep, that sounds like the fun and games of another Obscured By...
