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...

Our regular opening set of Australian 60’s and 70’s music this week featured a Loved Ones track found on a rare 1966 W&G Records compilation, plus a ‘live1971 Wild Cherries recording from Australia’s fondly-remembered ABC-TV series ‘GTK’. Other highlights included the “Light & Darkness suite”, comprising the whole of side 1 of Ash Ra Tempel’s second album, a couple of  Perth punk gems, a Peter Tork penned and performed song from the Monkees which remained unissued for more than twenty years, and a track from a new album spawned from the collaboration of Ty Segall and White Fence.  All rounded out with lots more, shall we say, obscurities and forgotten masterpieces... brought to you by the Cat & the Brat, your DOTS for this week......
