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

This week, it was a Brat alone on Technicolour Dreaming. But the sounds remained the same... 60’s Australian pop, garage and psych, new releases from cool Adelaide bands such as brillig and the Sea Thieves, plus a sprinkling of favourites like Joy Zipper, Kelley Stoltz and Death In June. Also, responding to requests, I played the whole of the 2nd side of the “Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake” album by the Small Faces from 1968, the ‘Happiness Stan’ saga, with narration by Stanley Unwin intertwined with its songs. And of course, I finished with the penultimate ‘Monkees Song of the Week’...
