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 6 2011

A busy show indeed for a solo Michael Hunter - first, an interview with Iva Davies concerning the reformed Icehouse and their successful reissued music to start the show.   Then some more rare Turkish psych/folk, and a rummage around the hidden recesses of the 3D record library for our featured letter for the week, S.   Plus the usual Australian rock rarities, including some more live 5 Sided Circle, recorded only a couple of weeks ago.  Then, entirely unexpectedly, Mike Rudd from Spectrum called in having been alerted via Facebook that their new EP would be featured, so of course, we had a welcome live phone interview with him too!   Plus a couple of listeners came in to renew their subscription during the show as well.  Phew...
