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 always, we wandered through genres and decades, beginning with an Australian 60’s classic by the Black Diamonds, followed later in the show by an American classic of the same era by the Sonics. We featured an Eno track from his brilliant 1973 debut LP, a fave from Norway’s Deleted Waveform Gatherings, a very cool track from the debut EP by new Adelaide band Fabels and a great version of ‘Holocaust’ by This Mortal Coil featuring Howard Devoto, as well as some Black Hollies, the debut single by French punks Metal Urbain and even a spot of ‘guru-bashing’ from the Beatles, before finishing with Thee Oh Sees, our January “Band of the Month”... all brought to you by the Cat and the Brat on 3D Radio...
