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

Once again, due to the unavailability of the Cat & the Brat, this week’s show was presented by our good friend and fellow 3D-er, Bryan... (listen in to his Tuesday morning brekkie show ‘MellowScream’ on 3D Radio for three hours of aural goodies!) He played an eclectic selection ranging from 60’s garage, with tracks from likes of the Monks and the Cryan’Shames, some punk from M.O.T.O. and through to new stuff from Belles Will Ring, brillig and DieselWitch, with assorted stops along the way. There was a Devo-themed bracket which included versions of their songs by Adelaide’s Tardis Retardis and Almost Numan, as well as a bunch of songs from the Bad Afro compilation series ‘Pushing Scandinavian Rock to the Man’, some Trashmen and Trashwomen, and finishing with the final appearance of Wooden ShjipsWest” as ‘Album of the Month’... Thanks for a great show Bryan... indeed a high standard for us to match on our return next week!!!
