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

Beginning with MontereyFestival-era Animals and ending with the Wooden Shjips, we spun a psych-skewed show this week, from Adelaide’s Ride Into The Sun to New Zealand’s Look Blue, Go Purple, from  Black Cab to the obscure ‘On Sunset’ by the Decades from 1967 and ‘Into the Night Sky’ by the Hidden Masters... Throw in some LeighStarDust, an Eno classic and the Go-Betweens first single, with a track from our “Feature Band of the Month”, the sorely under-rated Paul Revere and the Raiders, plus lots more to diversify the sound... and there it was – this week’s edition of Technicolour Dreaming with the Cat and the Brat...
