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

The Cat and the Brat interviewed Adelaide singer/songwriter Emily Davis on the show this week, in the run-up to her CD release show on 4th June in Adelaide, and played an exclusive pre-release track from that album. We also played a track from the new Belles Will Ring album, a ‘live’ version of Donovan’s “Hurdy Gurdy Man” from 2007 (with amusing ad-libbing), some 60’s Australian psych, and Peter Brat & the Molting Vultures recent ‘Life on the Dole’ 7” single (which will also be performed ‘live’ this Friday at the Grace Emily). And we played the final “Monkees’ Song of the Week” in our series of 25 songs... appropriately it was ‘Swami’, which played over the end-credits of their 1968 movie ‘Head’...
