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..

A Mexican Byrds cover, a Beatles cover from Ghana and Europop from the like of the Tee Set and Charlotte WaltersAlso, Boomer & Travis, incl Michael Martin Murphey with a Quincy Jones country song.  As part of an exploration of the E section of the Three D library, we found The Electric Chamber Orchestra - an Australian group of the 80s, as opposed to the 60s US group of the same name.  Roy Wood and The Wombles combining their seasonal songs.   An unreleased song by Noosha Fox (of Fox / SSS-Single Bed fame), along with German and NZ prog.  The last Obscured By... of the year, hosted by Michael Hunter, was no less eclectic than any other.  Just as it should be!
