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... Sept 27 2011

Diversity within obscurity.  Japanese post punk, a dodgy Dylan cover, recently unearthed Indonesian and Iranian psych rock, a dodgy Rock Hudson song, some rare Five Sided Circle recorded live in Adelaide 2 days previously, early Ian Dury and Joe Strummer, a dodgy mash-up, a visit to the "Q" section of the Three D library - and more.  All on the critically acclaimed show known as "Obscured By...", hosted this week by Michael Hunter  (Critical acclaim entirely made up.)

Gene Pierson  Reach Out I'll Be There  (single Aust 1970)
