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 the Cat and the Brat fossicked through sounds, past and present, for your delectation... beginning with the opening track from Earth’s brilliant 2007 album, we also played some Australian garage/psych from the Molting Vultures and the Sand Pebbles, a bunch of 60’s grooves from the likes of the Sonics and the Chambers Brothers, two distinct UK bands called the Moles separated by more than 40 years, a track from Quebec’s finest, the High Dials, plus a cut from the latest Deerhoof album before finishing with the Troggs’ first single... Technicolour Dreaming indeed!
