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

As our nod to the holiday season, we thought we’d feature a pile of songs about ‘The Trip’, and as you can imagine, there was no shortage to choose from... from Dr Timothy Leary to Kim Fowley, with Dantalion’s Chariot, the Intercontinental Playboys and Bobby and Laurie thrown in as a tongue in cheek warning against the perils of travelling.  For this penultimate show of the year, we also played a slew of Cat and Brat favourites including Black Cab, Black Mountain, the soon-to-be-touring Australia Thee Oh Sees and Sun Araw, and Canada’s Andrew Douglas Rothbard...  and of course, another pick from our “Band of the Month”, 60’s hit makers Paul Revere and the Raiders...
