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

The phones were ringing, subscribers knocking on the doors, volunteers filling out forms & taking details and payments.... yes, it was our annual Radiothon week at 3D Radio! The Cat & the Brat were busy playing a bunch of faves plus tracks from ‘giveaway’ albums, chatting to local musicians such as Brenton Manser, who brought in his latest album, and even managing to squeeze in a ‘live-in-the-studio’ interview with up-and-coming local band the Byzantines, who are releasing their debut EP this week. Whew! So we’d like to thank all those people who subscribed to help keep this great totally volunteer-run radio station continue to be independent and on-air – and you can still subscribe anytime... just go to the 3D Radio website and follow the prompts, and don’t forget that each subscriber receives a copy of the latest edition of DepthCharge, our annual CD compilation of Adelaide bands. here is the playlist plus a few associated clips.....
