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

 Thanks go out to fellow 3D Radio announcer Phil J. for so ably covering our absence last week while we were in Melbourne... we will get his playlist posted soon... but the break refreshed our enthusiasm for the music we play! The ‘Dig It Up!’ show was fabulous and inspired our choice for our new “Band of the Month” – Australian psych purveyors the Lovetones, who played an intimate, mesmerising set upstairs at the Palace Theatre. We began this week’s show with a long track from Wolfy & the Bat Cubs before later  moving on to the latest album by the Higher State, an orange vinyl single from the Black Angels, a Garden Path cover from the new album by the Molting Vultures and the debut EP from young Geelong outfit, the Murlocs, who feature Australian legend Broderick Smith’s son Ambrose on vocals and harmonica. From France, we heard Sheetah et les Weismullers, from Italy, Jennifer Gentle and from the UK there were the Horrors... throw in a psych-flavoured Bee Gees song, the sole single by Lotus from 1971, a classic from the Spikes plus many more and there you have it! The latest edition of Technicolour Dreaming on 3D Radio 93.7fm with your hosts, the Cat & the Brat.....
