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 last day of winter, the Cat & the Brat played an all-Australian show, with the exception of four of our favourite ‘overseas’ bands, which of course meant playing some Velvet Underground... how could we not! The bulk of the show though, featured current bands such as Adelaide’s own Like Leaves and brillig, Melbourne’s exciting Frowning Clouds and Sydney’s Black Cab, then travelled back to the 80’s, including 2 bands with new ‘best of’/rarities albums, the Lighthouse Keepers and the Ups and Downs, plus a few singles from the likes of the Church and Lizard Train. And we bade farewell to the Sand Pebbles in their final spin as ‘Album of the Month’...... without further ado, here is the full playlist.....
