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

Another sizeable delivery of CDs landed in our post office box this week, which made deciding what to play on the show exceptionally easy! We had a mixed bag of old and new music, and threw in a few of our favourites for good measure, with the Walker Brothers, Death in June, the Alohas and Clinic all making a re-appearance. From our recent acquisitions we featured some cool and crazy French tunes from Evariste and Nelly Perrier; throbbing, swirling psych from Vibravoid, Dead Skeletons and the Koolaid Electric Company and 60’s classics from The Fool, Yellow Balloon and the Beau Brummels - you get the idea! All brought to you by the Cat & the Brat on Adelaide’s 3D Radio in FM, digital and internet-streaming formats for your listening pleasure.....
