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

Stormy weather here in South Australia over the past week or so, and a fallen tree knocking over powerlines in downtown Stepney, caused 3D Radio to go off-air for a while during this week’s show. What? No back-ups we hear you ask? Errrr, well, they failed also.... so it was a truncated edition alas, yet we still managed to fit in some new music, including a song from the Aves brand new EP [recorded in New York] and the soon-to-be-released vinyl single from Buried Feather [their launch show with TD faves the Sun Blindness at the Old Bar in Melbourne on October 27th sounds like the place to be if you’re in the vicinity!] plus an as-yet-unreleased track from the Citradels. There was also a song from the new White Fence double LP (produced by Ty Segall) plus of course some 60’s gems... but then all too soon, it was time for our “Band of the Month”, the Dukes of Stratosphear, and the end of the show! Hopefully we’ll be powering back to full length next Wednesday.....
