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 the Cat... without her Brat... presenting Technicolour Dreaming! The show featured some new releases, including ones from local Adelaide bands such as Friends and D.D.Divine & Psycho Green, and a track from the new “Rats, Thieves & Liars” EP by Ride Into The Sun... plus, from the US and the UK, songs from the new Thee Oh Sees and the Horrors albums, respectively. Naturally, there was a smattering of older faves ranging from the 60’s sounds of Toni McCann and the Human Expression, to local 80’s electro-punk outfit, Nuvo Bloc, through to the Black Angels, Joy Zipper and Russia’s Messer Chups, and finishing with the final spin of the Laurels as the current “Album of the Month”... hmmm, what will be the August selection?
