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...

The new collection of "Antipodean" Nuggets CDs is still proving to be very plunderable, and so they began and concluded this week's Obscured By..., hosted by a solo Michael Hunter.  In between was the expected mix of old and new / near and far - and the just a little odd.  For the latter, look no further than Jonathan & Darlene Edwards (the less-talented alter egos of Jo Stafford & Paul Weston) deconstructing I Am Woman.  Some fine Greek pop and a frenzied accordion-led Purple Haze by Svetlyo Zhilev added to the mix, along with a near-half hour long track from the new Neil Young with Crazy Horse CD!  US singer/songwriter/cellist Ben Sollee, who will be a guest on the show in mid-January, showed what he's capable of - and the rest of the musical menu can be savoured below...
