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

The Cat and the Brat rejoiced in a “bad crowd” theme this week, as you’ll notice from songs by bands as diverse as Big Black and the Zachary Thaks... with Adelaide being well represented over the decades by the likes of the Twilights [60’s], Exploding White Mice [80’s] and the Molting Vultures [00’s]. We also featured the new single by the Frowning Clouds from Melbourne, a Simon and Garfunkel cover by the Church, a 2007 track from the Len Price 3 (caught ‘live’ in the UK recently by last week’s co-host Bryan) and an alliterative favourite from the Monkees. We played another track from our current “Album of the Month”, the double CD from Almost Numan which features the Adelaide band doing one CD of  Tubeway Army/Gary Numan/Devo cover-versions [called ‘OFF’] and another of 80’s-inspired originals [called ‘ON’] – great stuff! Plus songs from the Throb, Black Cab, Wire and lots more...
