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

With another bunch of CDs and vinyl appearing in our post-box, we were again spoiled with choice this week, playing amongst others, a track each from the new Carlton Melton and Magic Cat albums, a song from ex-Dolly Rocker Movement frontman Daniel Poulter’s new project, the Dandelion, as well as the A-side of Jacco Gardner’s latest single. We also finally received the long-awaited “Wizzz! Volume 1” compilation LP of French 60’s psychedelia which inspired a set of French grooviness from artists such as Les Papyvores, Jacques Dutronc and the inimitable Brigitte Bardot. However, a large hunk of the show was dedicated to the late Lou Reed – we featured songs from his Velvet Underground and solo periods plus a track from his widow, Laurie Anderson, and have included in the ‘moving pictures’ section of this blog, an hilarious TV interview in Sydney at the start of his 1974 tour here – I was fortunate enough to see him in Adelaide where he mixed with some of us in the bar during his support act, AC/DC – a memorable show!
