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

Dropping into our P.O. on the way into 3D Radio in Adelaide for our show, we had the good fortune to receive our packages of back issues from the brilliant Greek psych mag ‘TimeMazine’, including the awesome compilations that go with each [thank you Michalis!] and another pile of CDs from the Active Listener’s on-line store in New Zealand [thank you Nathan!], so we had plenty of new music to share with you on top of the trusty bagful we were already taking into the station. Whew! Another game of “what do we play first?!” But we managed, though as always there was a LARGE heap of unplayed vinyl and CDs... but they’ll be on the agenda next week, fear not dear listener!.....
