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

 From amongst all the new releases recently joining the 3D Library, there were quite a few that we wanted to bring to you, but they wouldn’t all fit in a month of shows, let alone one ... so we selected a few to highlight, amongst them a song from the latest Mynd Gardeners EP, a pre-release track from the new Dandy Warhols album plus another from the new one by Spiritualized. We also played a song from the brand new Molting Vultures record which was produced with Vic Conrad [Garden Path, Dust Collection etc] in conjunction with Matt Hills and the band. From the archives we played a number of Australian singles from the likes of the Hoodoo Gurus, Super K and the Primevils plus some gems from legends such as the Sonics and the Rolling Stones, before finishing with the final showing from our current “Band of the Month”, the Zoot.... so who will it be next month?
