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 been a while since we played a song-suite, so the five tracks that compose the opus that is ‘In Held Twas I’ from Procol Harum’s second album seemed to fit the bill. From there it was off on a trip through eras and locales, fed by more of the goodies that have appeared in our post-box recently, plus a few old favourites like the Twilights, Eno and Jacques Dutronc. Highlights included songs from the debut album by Dean Allen Foyd, the Citradels, Beaulieau Porch and local heroes the Systemaddicts, as well as from older albums by Sweden’s the Works and criminally neglected 60’s L.A. garage-girls the Daisy Chain, plus a cool version of D.A.F.’s “Der Mussolini” by Green Hornet and a classic from nick nicely. Throw in the Wondermints, Jeff Duff, the Millennium and loads more and it’s another episode done and dusted by the Cat and the Brat.....
