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

Not only were we joined for this week’s show by Michael Hunter, the other ‘DOT’ from our old “Obscured by...” days, but also by ex-Masters Apprentices guitarist, Peter Tilbrook, who came into the studio to tell us about the current “Pop Treasures : Adelaide 60’s Music” exhibition [see link here] at the State Library and, in particular, a one-off performance event – “Memory Lane” – this coming Monday evening, the 17th February, by the Twilight Zone – a band consisting of former members of Adelaide legends the Twilights, the Others and the Masters Apprentices, including of course Peter himself. It promises to be a night to remember, so if you’re in town, don’t miss either the performance or the exhibition! [for details of the gig, see link here] In honour of this, we also sprinkled in a few tracks from the era by bands such as the Hergs and the Zoot from Adelaide, the Turtles, the Beacon Street Union and Lotus, as well as newer exponents of that psychedelic beat such as Ponyface, Temples, Black Market Karma, Toy and Lady Strangelove, plus new singles from Beaulieu Porch and Magic Bones. See you at the library on Monday night - and until next week on Technicolour Dreaming.....
