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

Ant and Dan from Adelaide’s conquering psych heroes, Ride Into The Sun, were welcomed back from their recent US tour, which centred on their well-received appearance at the 2013 Austin Psych Fest, as interviewees & guest programmers on this week’s show. We also previewed tracks from their new, self-titled mini-LP [available in a very limited edition on psychedelic, multi-coloured vinyl, as well as on CD] which will be launched here on Saturday 6th July, when they play alongside the Morning After Girls and Archers at ‘Jive’ in Hindley Street... certainly a contender for ‘gig of the year’! The guys had lots of stories to share from their sojourn in the US and played tracks by some of the bands they encountered, including the Black Ryder, Singapore Sling and, of course, festival hosts the Black Angels. Also thrown into the mix of sounds were Spain’s Los Chicos, German psychedelicists Sula Bassana and the debut of Adelaide’s the Byzantines plus the latest single by Pond, a classic b-side from the Stems and a track from the new Mikal Cronin LP, finishing with a French 60’s single by Les Yper Sound which was later used in the theme for TV’s ‘Futurama’.....
