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

Trawling through the 3D Radio library’s “new releases” section provided us with a huge pile of music to add to the already large stack we’d chosen to bring in, way too much for just one show, so we cherry-picked, but just had to start with the insidiously catchy pre-release single from the upcoming new Jim Jones Revue album. From there, it went all over the place... from Geelong we played a track by the Citradels, from the Central Coast of NSW we heard the Mandelas, all the way from San Diego some psychedelic grooviness courtesy of the Koolaid Electric Company, from England came the title track from the debut LP by the Galileo 7 and from here in Adelaide, the True Detective and a demo from Rocket Frog. Throw in a variety of styles and sounds, including the psych drone of Lumerians and Crystal Stilts, both from the USA circa 2011, plus our current Band of the Month, Adelaide’s own Ride Into The Sun, and it was another edition of Technicolour Dreaming, done and dusted.....
