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

There was quite an influx into the 3D library for us to plunder this week, with new releases from the likes of Place of Indigo, SMRTS and local outfit Sparkspitter, with the new CD from Fluffy actually hand-delivered to us during the show, meaning of course an instant spin for one of our favourite bands! Needless to say though, the past was not ignored, with tracks from the New York Dolls, the Byrds and the Masters Apprentices, plus a gem from the final Walker Brothers album. Finally, we debuted Brillig as our November “Band of the Month” by playing their very cool take on TV’s “Monkey” theme from 2003.....
