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

Once again, the Cat and the Brat featured an eclectic mix of bands and locales, ranging from the USA with the 60s garage/psych/pop of Penny Arkade and the Moving Sidewalks and into the 70s with Devo and Suicide, a cluster of Australian 80s, from the obscure Nick Gogol to the original ‘Le’ Hoodoo Gurus, right up to new releases from Queensland’s Lobster Prophets, Melbourne’s YIS and Adelaide’s Jay Walker & the Pedestrians. We also played a track by great Adelaide 80s band, the Spikes, in memory of their guitarist Ian List, who passed away this week. Naturally we concluded the show with a song from our current “Album of the Month” by Sydney’s Belles Will Ring...
