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

The Cat and the Brat are back... and thanks to 3D compadre Phil J for filling-in for us again at short notice last week! We devoted half the show to Australian bands this week, beginning with the wonderful Go Go Sapiens from Melbourne, before continuing with acts such as Ride Into The Sun, Thee Wylde Oscars and Love Parade, as well as new local band Summer Flake and fondly-remembered 80’s outfit, Toyland. Spreading out to the rest of the globe, we played new stuff from Gravenhurst and King Tuff, plus a song each from two of this week’s visitors to Adelaide, the Raveonettes and the Brian Jonestown Massacre... and of course there was a track from the Lovetones, our current ‘Band of the Month’! These, and more, and it’s another Technicolour Dreaming for your delectation....

Damn it! I record your show every week fo over a year now and I've been waiting for that Toyland "Light plane over palestine" song for ages. Problem is it was the last song on your set and I only heard the first 22 seconds of it. Any chance of you playing it again soon? Maybe on obscurbed by..., this time in the middle of your show...pleeeeeease?
