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...

Sadly, there were two more RIPs to announce and commemorate - Bob Welch, ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist and Eduard Khil, the Russian artist behind probably the most successful meme of recent times - quite different musically but both making their own mark on the world.    Elsewhere in the show, we continued with some favourite themes such as bizarre covers, rare singles from any place and any time, Australian obscurities, even some current Welsh music from Houdini Dax and Colorama.  Indeed, we - that is, all three "dots" - even saw fit to include a Wa Wa Nee single.  Have we no shame?  That's a rhetorical question, btw.
