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 once again a diverse show this week, with the Cat & the Brat ranging through old favourites such as Iggy & the Stooges, Clinic and Magazine through Adelaide stalwarts the Asteroid Belt and Van Cleef, plus some recent releases from Ty Segall, Crystal Stilts and Maya. We also sadly bid farewell to a couple of our favourite Australian bands, Belles Will Ring and the Amcats, who have both announced their final performances and that they are going on an indefinite hiatus, as well as playing the Dukes of Stratosphear’s final showing as our “Band of the Month”, plus of course, much more, so without further ado.....
