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

On this week’s show, we ranged from the debut 7” singles by mid-70’s New Yorkers, Patti Smith and Blondie (the original version of ‘X Offender’ and, in our opinion, superior to the better known album take!), to more recent tracks from San Francisco’s fantastic Thee Oh Sees, Toronto’s brilliant psych band, the Hoa Hoa’s, and Melbourne’s all-girl punk rockers, the Spazzys. We interviewed two members of Adelaide band Van Cleef, Chris and Mike, who also chose an eclectic set for us to play... including a song from the sound-track to Dario Argento’s 1982 movie, ‘Tenebre’, to a Roger Taylor-sung Queen track, to the Stooges. Naturally, we also played a number from the current ‘Album of the Month’ by Belles Will Ring... plus much more... here is the playlist...
