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

Fellow 3D Radio announcer Bryan (have a listen to his “MellowScream” breakfast show on Tuesdays, 6-9am Adelaide-time!) filled in for us again this week... keeping the sound of our show, but adding his own twist, he dug up some punk classics such as the Toy Dolls and Last Words, a taste of the 80’s with the Lime Spiders, a Beatles’ cover from 60’s Singapore, some recent Australian psych from bands such as the Dolly Rocker Movement, as well as diverse local Adelaide music from bands such as Circle Clan, the Green Circles and the Aves... finishing with a track off the Cat & the Brat’s new “Album of the Month”,  which of course is “West”, by San Francisco’s Wooden Shjips, their first album to be recorded in a “proper studio”, rather than ‘live’ or at their home studio...
