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

Bryan was the show’s host this week and he certainly found some very cool sounds to play, including a song from the debut EP by a great new Adelaide band Horror My Friend, a live recording from 3D Radio’s ‘Sound Lounge’ show by the Aves and, from the 1990s, a Lou Reed track plus one by local punks the Crazies. There were a bunch of 60’s treats from the likes of the Electric Prunes and the Atlantics,  the debut single by the Zoot and plus one from the Sonics, whose gig here this year is eagerly awaited... we’ll keep you updated on that one! He also featured the surf sounds of the Beach Chromers and Cosmic Bikini as well as a few punk classics from, amongst others, the Adverts, Patti Smith and Wire... he also played a track from new Melbourne band Wolfy and the Batcubs, whose recent show here rocked! And of course, he finished with another band whose gig here has also been eagerly awaited, Thee Oh Sees, our current “Band of the Month”... all of this and more on Technicolour Dreaming! Thanx Bryan!
