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

 While casting about in the 3D Library for the Black Angels album we needed for our opening track, we were struck by the number of CDs by bands using ‘Black’ in their name... there were almost three full shelves of them! So we couldn’t resist playing a few of our favourites from amongst them, and even managing to end the run with a song of [almost] the same name as the opening band... as we said, there were a LOT to choose from! From there however, we reverted to Technicolour and a mixture of some older tracks by bands such as the Boys Next Door, Procession, Elton Motello and Oakapple Day with some brand new ones by Russian Roulette and the Molting Vultures before finishing with our latest “Band of the Monththe Sonics, who just happen to be touring Australia this month, including playing in Adelaide on the 24th!
