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 were in the mood for some heavy guitar sounds this week, as evidenced by Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ through to some Stooges and Radio Birdman. Of course there was plenty of psych goodness too, with tracks from Thee Oh Sees, Adelaide’s Mondo Phase Band (recorded ‘live’ in 3D Radio’s SoundLounge), the Lovetones, a pick from the new ‘singles collection’ by the Brian Jonestown Massacre and a keyboard freakout from Quasi. There was a classic early single by the Saints plus some mid-70’s Flamin’ Groovies and a demo from Adelaide punk legend, Liz Dealey. We finished with another track from ‘West’ by the Wooden Shjips, our current ‘Album of the Month’.....
