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

It’s the final show for 2013 and it was on New Year’s Eve, so it was appropriate we wrapped up our series of “Favourites of the Year” with what was certainly a highlight of 2013 – the new Wooden Shjips LP. Before we got there though, there was a plethora of other faves to be played, though of course some slipped through the cracks and these will no doubt ooze into our early 2014 shows! Anyway, we hope you all have a great New Year – one that promises to build on the growing eruption of excellent psychedelia that seems to be overtaking us... 2014 should hold some very intriguing new music!
