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

This show featured a varied contingent of sounds, mostly, it transpired, from the United States (Beachwood Sparks, Espers and Sleepy Sun amongst others), including the eagerly anticipated recent offering from Asteroid No.4, which had arrived in our letterbox only hours before! The rest of the world wasn’t left out though... we had the Keys from Wales, Canada was represented by the High Dials, and little old Adelaide provided both the latest song from All The Leaves Have Fallen and a 60’s psych classic from the James Taylor Move; there was, of course, much more music before we finished with this week’s track from Eno, our current “Artiste of the Month”.....
