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

Which to go with, the old or the new? With so much great music to choose from, both from our own collection, and Three D Radio’s massive vinyl and CD library, we often find it hard to decide which songs will make the cut each week! Two hours just never seems to be enough, especially when there are so many great new bands we want to introduce to you, the listener, without sacrificing the old favourites, the obscure gems, and those that deserve to be known better. But all in all, we think that we manage to pick a pretty great bunch of tracks for your listening pleasure each week – we hope you agree!
