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

The Scientists are in Adelaide this week so we thought we’d feature one of their classic songs, albeit one originally released as a single b-side, and this kind of set the tone for the rest of the show. Yes there were some recent releases, including songs from Pinkunoizu, the Luck of Eden Hall and Temples and even pre-releases from the Barbarellatones and the Dandelion Seeds, but the bulk of rest were from all over the place, with tracks from artists such as Chad & Jeremy, John Foxx, nick nicely, the Good, the Bad & the Queen, This Mortal Coil and the Frantics, with Mordecai Smyth finishing off on a suitably British psych-pop note.....
..... so here is the playlist, with some visuals to divert.....
