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 had a plethora of eagerly awaited releases to play this week, including tracks from the brand new Wooden Shjips and les Limiñanas LPs, plus, from the Sandgate Studios in the UK, new albums by the Higher State and Groovy Uncle featuring Suzi ChunkCat & Brat faves all! We were also pleased to discover, from Italy, the debut LP by Milan’s Selfish Cales whose earlier EPs had quite a bit of airplay here on 3D Radio, plus the latest album by the Dials and an Asteroid #4 EP from May this year, as well as tracks from a few of our favourite vinyl labels such as Fruits de Mer and the Reverberation Appreciation Society. Of course there was also some 60’s goodness from artists such as Dave Davies, Johnny Young and Evariste, with more cuts from the Dandelion, Sky Picnic and Black Hollies albums and finishing with Adelaide’s own Black Coral, before we once again ran out of time!
