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 starting with some 70’s New York rocking from Patti Smith and Harry Toledo, amongst others, and then dropping in some psychedelia, surf and garage, including America’s Dark Ocean Colors, New Zealand’s Tomorrow’s Love, a swirly classic from the Bee Gees 2nd English LP, a scary surf story from the Barbarellatones and a pre-release taste of the new single from Paul Messis, the bulk of this week’s show featured a diverse bunch of local and Australian acts such as DieselWitch, the Skronks, the Molting Vultures, the Moodists and the Mynd Gardeners, and included a phone interview with Magic Bones who are headed our way as part of the launch tour for their new EP, before finishing with our current “Band of the Month”, the Sonics.
