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...

On this final edition of ‘Obscured by...’ in its current format, all three "dots" were joined by Yours Truly, a duo comprising Ken Stewart (Urban Guerillas) and local performer David Robinson, chatting and playing live in the studio.  Also featured were some tracks from the 3CD compilation which accompanies Julian Cope’s new tome “Copendium”.... Rock Hudson rocked us (gently) ...Swedish psych legends Baby Grandmothers’ only single during their long career (and they went to Finland to make & release it!).... Electric Moon’s Germanic spacerock drone, some Dirty Filthy Mud and Kak with Mothers Love.... and everything else listed below!  We’ll be back on the first day of 2013 with a new format show, but with more similarities than differences to what has gone before!
