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

After last week’s ‘technical difficulties’, it was a pleasure to have a veteran of the Adelaide music scene, Vic Conrad [aka Mr V] join us in the studio for a chat about Gray Packham’s new album ‘La La Land’, the latest release from one of his ventures, Walking Bird Records. The album will be launched at the Grace Emily Hotel on Sunday afternoon with performances by most of the musicians involved, both individually and playing Gray’s songs, and should prove to be one of this year’s live musical highlights, so get along if you can. We also featured a number of other Australian releases including those of Melbourne psychedelicists the Grand Rapids, Davey Lane’s new E.P. and the latest compilation from Geelong’s prolific Anti-Fade Records. We also played the A-side of the debut single by our Finnish faves Permanent Clear Light on the wonderful vinyl-only Fruits De Mer label, presented in a 3D pic-sleeve [glasses included!] as well as a slice of dreamy pop from the UK’s Amor De Dias plus, as always, a bunch of 60’s psychedelic rarities from bands such as Pisces, the Golden Dawn and Austria’s Hide & Seek. So, until next week.....
