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

And so here it is... after six years of ‘drive-time radio’, we have the final Wednesday evening edition of Technicolour Dreaming. But it’s a consolidation, not some doomsday pronouncement... the Cat & the Brat will return on Tuesday, the first day of 2013, with an all-new version, rolling our two shows into one woozy, psychedelic, obscurity-filled noise-fest for your aural delectation! We will be combining our latest psych/surf/garage/electronic/pop faves with a generous helping of the weird & wonderful [dare we say obscurities?] of yesteryear, both from home and faraway shores plus the occasional interview and ‘live in the studio’ performance, as is our wont. And our dear former co-DOT, Mr Michael Hunter, will be dropping in from time to time to throw a few rarities/oddities your way... so it really is a case of “plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose ”, but in a good way!! In the meantime, feast your ears & eyes on the playlist/clips below from this last show where we played a bunch of our picks from 2012 including Pony Face, Los Liminanas and Ty Segall as well as all-time greats such as Sparks, Wooden Shjips and the Seeds before our finalArtist of the Month” choice, Scott Walker, provided the melodious soundtrack to our getaway......
