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...

Technicolour Dreaming - 20th April 2011

Peter Brat here... I hosted this week’s show without the help of my Cat, and so started with Patti Smith’s “Ain’t It Strange” which summed it up! However I played one of her (and my) fave current bands, the Sand Pebbles plus her favourite Models’ song, knowing she was listening in... The show wandered, as is our wont, from the Australian 60s psychedelia of the Dave Miller Set, through the Swedish 80s garage rock of the Wylde Mammoths, to the 21st century sounds of the Telescopes, Death In June, Black Box Recorder and Adelaide’s Green Circles... plus of course this week’s Monkees song and another track from our album of the month, Moon Duo’s “Mazes”... here is the playlist...
