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 this week, Peter Brat was the sole presenter on the show... but the Cat is returning soon! As usual I played a number of 60’s bands, such as the Nazz and the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, as well as a very cool psych track by the Bee Gees from their second album, a few new tracks [my favourite being one from the great new album by the Barbarellatones] and various points in between, including a bunch of singles and album tracks by some of Australia’s finest like the Lipstick Killers, God, the Moodists and the Dagoes... I finished with another track from our current “Album of the Month” by Sydney band, the Laurels...
