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

Sometimes the best-laid plans for a show just disappear once you go to air, which is what happened this week! A phone call from a listener requesting an Atlantics song led us into some 60’s kicks of (primarily) the Australian kind, from Normie Rowe and the Easybeats to the Red Angel Panic and the Hergs amongst others. But different eras and locales were not to be ignored... new music from Canada’s Metz and the UK’s Galileo 7, 80’s singles by the Dentists and Close Lobsters, plus a brand new demo from Adelaide’s Alpha Beta Fox and the return of Go Kart Mozart... most of these were not on our original agenda, but hey, who really wants agendas anyway! The penultimate appearance of Ride Into The Sun as our “Band of the Month” and that was Technicolour Dreaming, and the Cat and the Brat, for another week......
