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

We played a lot of 60s garage and psych goodies this week as we often do, as well as some current coolies and more. Sad to hear of the passing of Poly Styrene from X-Ray Spex... Peter Brat was lucky enough to see them in 1978 at ‘the Roundhouse’ in London – a great show, which also featured [‘Dirk wears White Sox’-era] Adam & the Ants and the Adverts! We also decided on our May “Album of the Month”... and it’s “Meat the Zombeatles” by the Zombeatles! It’s the first album from “the Fab Gore”, the “undead pop combo” who are purveyors of the “No-Mercybeat Sound” and you can see a trailer for their new movie on youTube! Are they the Rutles of the 21st century? You decide! And of course we finished this week’s show with the MonkeesSong of the Week’... here is the playlist...
