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

21.3.12 - Palindrome Dreaming in Technicolour!!  Beginning with local outfit Ride Into The Sun, we voyaged back to some early Dandy Warhols and even earlier Simple Minds, as well as a Beach Boys song allegedly adapted from a Charlie Manson demo, before returning to the present with Thee American Revolution, Melbourne’s Magic Bones, the Sunburners and the brand new vinyl EP from the Mynd Gardeners. Along the way we played a classic from Scratch Acid, a side of the sole single by Adelaide’s Die Dancing Bears,  a great 13th Floor Elevators cover by the Dagoes, plus, from the 60's, the original version of ‘Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!’ by the Bostweeds..... these, and many more, were played for your delectation before we signed off with our current ‘Band of the Month’, the Zoot.....
