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

Paul D [from 3D Radio’s “the B-Side”] curated this week’s edition of Technicolour Dreaming in the absence of the Cat & the Brat... and what a great program! Beginning with a set of UK punk rock goodness from the likes of the Leyton Buzzards and Stiff Little Fingers, he featured releases and demos by some of Adelaide and Australia’s brightest, from the new DieselWitch and Villenettes demos through a couple of tracks from the Nuggets: Antipodean Interpolations... compilation of covers which was released last week, and on to current fave Subtract-S and back to a Green Circles track from 2008. The rest of the world wasn’t left out either, with great tracks from Donovan, Magazine, the Misunderstood etc, as well as introducing  Scott Walker  as our final “Band [or in this case, ‘Artiste’] of the Month” for 2012 – all said and done, a very cool listening experience!
