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

Once again this week the Cat and the Brat played a diverse set, ranging from the modern psych of America’s Andrew Douglas Rothbard, Sweden’s Dungen and Italy’s the Selfish Cales, to the 6o’s UK freakbeat of the Eyes and an early Frank Zappa cover by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band..... from some iconic Roxy Music to a Mexican revolutionary anthem by Adelaide’s Van Cleef, from an ode to the discotheque by Adelaide’s Mynd Gardeners to Mick Ronson’s brilliant ‘Only After Dark’, and from the Demon Parade to the Church to Ride Into The Sun to God! Ain’t that rock’n’roll religion?! And we ended the show with the surf’n’sleaze of the Barbarellatones, our current “Band Of The Month”, giving their unique spin to a Jan & Dean classic.....
