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’s the end of November so we bid a fond adieu to Brillig as our “Band of the Month” [see their website here ] by playing one of our faves from their ‘electric’ period... they are doing several shows over the next few months [including a Peter Murphy support] so go see them play – they always put on an engrossing show.  And as the end of the year approaches one tends to begin reflecting on the music that we’ve enjoyed over the past 12 months or so, such as new albums by White Fence, Thee American Revolution, the Barbarellatones and Moon Duo, local singles/EPs by Subtract-S and Lady Strangelove, as well as the new Australian Nuggets compilations... we’ll certainly replaying more favourites as the New Year approaches while not, of course, neglecting those of yesteryear...
