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

For the final show for 2011 we played a selection of our favourite music, new and old... pretty much your regular Technicolour Dreaming really! We roamed from the new Horrors album to the debut from Adelaide’s Systemaddicts, from the psychedelic harmonies of Mikal Cronin to the garage brilliance of Clinic and from a Rolling Stones gem to a great version of a ‘wormy’ classic by Adelaide’s brillig. We also paid tribute to the late Sean Bonniwell... the Music Machine were one of the great bands of the 60’s, precursors of punk dressed in black and leather, who did the ‘one-gloved-hand’ thing way before that Jackson guy! We also featured a track from our newest boxset (though it was released in 2009)... a very groovy collection by the Dukes of Stratosphear [i.e. XTC in psychedelic disguise] packaged in purple velour and including a jigsaw puzzle... what better holiday gift could we get ourselves! And in finishing with the last pick from the current “band of the month”, Paul Revere and the Raiders, we bid our listeners/readers [i.e. YOU] a “Happy New Year” and we look forward to bringing you more great music in 2012...
