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 psych-pop classic “We Love You” by the Rolling Stones, with Brian Jones on mellotron and Lennon & McCartney on backing vocals, began today’s edition of Technicolour Dreaming, while, with ‘The Seeker’ from their debut EP, the Sunnyboys, in their last appearance as our “band of the month”, finished it. In between, we played a cut from the soon-to-be-released debut album by the Laurels, recent releases from bands such as Thee American Revolution, Love Parade and Them Plasms, a song from a Brian Eno’s ‘Another Green World’, a track from Paul McCartney’s debut solo album featuring his first recorded duet with Linda, a version of “The Saint” theme by a UK band found on a compilation of instrumentals supposedly from behind ‘the Iron Curtain’ [?], a Ray Davies song given the Redd Kross treatment, the brilliantly-named ‘Krome Plated Yabby1967 single from Australia’s own Wild Cherries and the Count Five’s ‘Psychotic Reaction’, plus much more... all brought to you once more by the Cat & the Brat on 3D Radio 93.7fm.....
