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

This week as always, we played a diverse bunch of records, ranging from the 60’s pop of Nancy Sinatra, the Twilights and Jacques Dutronc through to new albums from Mikal Cronin, Dark Ocean Colors and Norway’s the Apricot, plus a garage/psych side-project by Robert Schneider of Apples In Stereo called Thee American Revolution, as well as some Australian sounds from, amongst others, the Riptides, the Molting Vultures, Asteroid Belt and Space Party. We went electronic with John Foxx before ending the show with the final appearance as “Band of the Month” by California’s the Barbarellatones... all brought to you, of course, by the Cat and the Brat.....

What an eclectic collection. You know, I was just listening to Nancy the other day while grabbing a bite to eat in a 50's Diner.

Your collection prompts me to ask the following question: From that same era there was a band called, 'Friends and Lovers.' Have you ever heard of them? I have been attempting (albeit half-heartedly)to locate a song, whose title I am not sure of.

Some of the lyrics I do recall are: "I think it's kind of groovy now, that people are finally getting together..."

That's all I recall, but I do like that song!
