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...

Though this week’s hosts, the Cat & the Brat, are a ‘duo’, this show was mostly about singles... the 7” vinyl kind ... and sometimes, their b-sides! From the Syssys and the Revillos to Psychic TV and Metal Urbain, we voyaged from decade to decade and country to country to bring them to you, even including a b-side featuring ubiquitous 60’s Sydney DJ, Ward ‘Pally’ Austin on the debut single by Python Lee Jackson! Not that we forgot the EP and LP formats either, with rarities from the likes of Frog Hollow and the Urinals to the Cosmic Dead and Apryl Fool... and with our predilection for boxsets, how could we fail to play a selection from “the Lost Tapes” set by Can? All in all, a singular show...
