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

So much music, so little time” has been our mantra since day one and this week was no exception, so we squeezed in as many as possible of the diverse tunes on offer, including new releases from Morgan Delt, Diane Coffee, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and Thee Oh Sees. Naturally there was also a selection of 60’s goodies from Colours, Fleurs de Lys, the Executives and a few French ‘exotiques’ from the likes of Michel Polnareff and les Gypsys. Throw in some Luck of Eden Hall, White Fence, Sand Pebbles amongst others and it’s another sonic adventure with the Cat & the Brat on 3D Radio......
