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...

All three ‘DOTS’ were in the studio for this week’s show, which stretched from a rare 1962 New Zealand LP by Peter Posa to a pre-release track from the debut album by English psych band Dewolff, due out soon. Along the way we heard some rare 60’s singles from the likes of 4th Street Exit, the Zakary Thaks and Melbourne’s Pink Finks, early recordings by the Dots (before they were Paul Kelly and...) plus the Human League, as well as a great version of a Roxy Music classic by ex-members of Christian Death. And finally, we have counted back to A as our ‘Letter of the Week’, thus ending yet another “regular segment”... ahh, what shall we do to replace it? Tune in next week to find out..... heh heh!
