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...

Peter Brat and Michael Hunter were the two ‘DOTS’ in the studio presenting this week’s episode of ‘Obscured by...’, and were joined by phone for a lengthy chat by Craig Collinge, drummer in the Librettos, the Playboys, Procession, Manfred Mann Chapter 111, World War Three, plus lots more, even including a brief stay in Fleetwood Mac in 1973-74, and continuing through to his current ‘Evolution2Revolution’ project.... so we had LOTS to talk about! Of course there was a lot more music played... including a track from Billy Joel’s band Attila (nominated as the ‘worst record ever’ in, though personally we are sure there are far worse!), a song from the first album by Bjork (aged 14) and a ‘live’ track from reformed local 60’s band, 5 Sided Circle, at their gig last Sunday... can’t get more immediate than that!
