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...

This particular Obscured By... included a farewell to Melbourne music identity Peter Lillie (Pelaco Bros, Autodrifters etc), a collection of Greek psychedelic and related music, another rocky show tune from Dee Snider, Australian rock and pop rarities as usual, the oddness of one man band Deb Hyer and some word-association inspired blending of tracks - Sun Araw spontaneously leading to Rolf Harris' Sun Arise.  Clever, eh?  Cat and Brat, Michael Hunter - at your service.
