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 - 27th April 2011

The Cat & the Brat took the name ‘Technicolour Dreaming’ in tribute to the legendary London ‘musical happening’ at Alexandria Palace, “the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream”, on April 29th 1967... therefore it seemed appropriate in the week of its 44th anniversary to play one of the songs featuring the name... hence the track by Status Quo. We also played a bunch of 60’s Australian singles plus some modern psych successors such as Les Annees, the Asteroid Belt, Brightblack Morning Light and the now-defunct Mona Lisa Overdrive; plus, of course, ‘the Monkees song of the week’ and the final showing of the April ‘Album of the Month’ by Moon Duo... hmmmm, wonder what will be May’s?
