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

Another show, another Dream... this week courtesy of 3D Radio compadre Bryan! Beginning with a blast of the psychedelic from the Asteroid Belt through some 80’s Melbourne psychobilly from the Corpse Grinders onto the black leather glam of classic Suzi Quatro and the whirling acid folk of Circulus, he played a mass of good music from all over, including a number of songs from various Adelaide bands and performers such as Kamikaze, Van Cleef and the mandolin strum of Madeline Hudson plus others from around the world, such as the Apricot from Norway, the UK’s Terry Edwards and Dark Ocean Colors from the USA, before finishing with the Zoot, our current “Band of the Month”... a great show.
