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

It was RADIOTHON time here on Adelaide’s 3D Radio this week, so the Cat and the Brat played lots of our (and we hope, your) favourite tracks while dealing with the phonecalls from subscribers-to-be and doing special ‘giveaways’... yes, it was chaotic, but also FUN! And we thank all of you who have subscribed (or intend to subscribe) to this wonderful all-volunteer community radio station to help keep us going to air (and streaming on the ‘net!) for the coming year... our licence is for promoting independent and progressive music from all genres and eras, particularly local and Australian. That’s why you can hear the music we play on our shows... music that is largely ignored by other stations. So whether you live in Adelaide or Albuquerque, Berlin, Athens, Zagreb or wherever... check out our website at and subscribe to this great station!
