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

As we gear up here for next week’s 3D Radiothon 2012, we felt we should up the local and Australian quotient in preparation, which was easy since there were so many new releases fitting that bill which demanded to be played! There were new singles from King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and the Demon Parade, EPs from a bunch of local acts including the Sunbirds, Steering By Stars and Sleeptalker, as well as albums from Wolfmother/redsunband offshoot Good Heavens and the Laurels. But it was not all new stuff... as always, we parted the mists of time and played lost gems by Lotus, the Psychedelic Furs and Echo & the Bunnymen, plus a track by the Popinjays from their 1992 ‘coversEP,and one from Canada’s High Dials, taken from Psychedelica 4, the most recent of Northern Star Records excellent compilation series before finishing with our currentArtiste of the Month”, the late great Baterz.....
