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

It was a more relaxed Cat & Brat this week, having recovered from last week’s 3D Radiothon marathon, but still, we hit the ground running as per the Gordon Gano song we began with! There was new music from the likes of UK songstress Suzi Chunk, Japan’s Tenniscoats and Adelaide’s Volcano Cleaner, with the latest single from Django Django and a track from Wizards of Time’s intriguing debut, plus interesting covers of songs written by the likes of Bowie and the Rutles... there was a 1971 New Zealand Top 10 chart hit by Timberjack as well as tunes from the more recent past by Painted Hills, Pugwash and the Scoundrelles plus much more, before we finished the show with a very humorous song by Baterz in his final appearance as our “Artiste of the Month”.....
