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

We got a nice surprise in the mail today in the form of the new Permanent Clear Light CD all the way from Helsinki, Finland. We were most impressed by a track we played earlier this year so we had high hopes for the album... and were not disappointed – it’s brilliant! Don’t know what it is about those northern climes, but many of our recent faves such as the Apricot, Vibravoid, Life On Earth, the Amazing and many others have come from northern Europe and now PCL joins that list, so “do yourself a favour” and check them out – we’ll certainly be playing more songs from the album in the weeks to come for you to hear. Also featured this week was the latest release by the ever-prolific Ty Segall plus a bunch of cool 60’s tracks from around the world by the likes Rainbow Ffolly, We All Together, the Churchills, Ultimate Spinach and Adelaide’s own Masters Apprentices – in other words, back to business as usual for the Cat & the Brat on Technicolour Dreaming after last week’s hectic 3D Radio-thon edition.....
