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

the Cat and the Brat began this week’s edition of Technicolour Dreaming with Nuvo Bloc, a band that received quite a bit of airplay when 3D Radio (under the moniker of 5MMM) first started broadcasting way back in 1979, and then dropped in a few bands such as Almost Numan and Fluffy who’ve had similar recognition more recently, before finishing the show with the winners of the TOP 101 for 2011, Ride Into The Sun. Along the way, we played some 70’s and 80’s favourites such as Roxy Music, the Associates (featuring the brilliant voice of Billy MacKenzie) and Big Black, as well as some new music from Dewolff and La Bastard, with a sing-a-long from the Rutles thrown in... mainly so we could put up the accompanying clip from their movie..... heh heh!
