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 1st show of the year and we had a large pile of new vinyl and CDs to play and thus begin as we intend to go on..... with a “kerrang”, as it were! Apart from all the formerly forgotten ‘lost’ classics from the past that are again seeing the light of day and finding appreciative audiences due to the dedication of ‘re-issue’ labels making them affordable again rather than just the preserve of a few well-heeled ‘collectors’, there is a rising swell of new, young bands from all over the world who are building on these roots and creating a plethora of new psychedelic sounds – 2014 promises to be another interesting year for psychedelia and associated sounds! So, without further ado.....
