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

Digging into the 3D RadioNew Releases” section this week, we found some great songs on both new and older bands’ recent offerings and re-issues, including a single by the Sunday Reeds, EPs by Adelaide’s Horror My Friend and Self Preservation Society and a singles and demos anthology from Orange County’s Ty Segall. We played selections from some current psychedelic bands such as Australia’s Black Cab and the Black Ryder, a track off the debut album by Dark Ocean Colors as well as one from the sole album (and sadly neglected masterpiece) by All Night Radio... there was some Bowie and Bolan, classics from the Pixies and the Sunnyboys plus lots more before we finished with our current ‘Band of the Month’, the fabulous Barbarellatones (and check out the award-winning film-clip for the song!)... all brought to you by the Cat and the Brat......
