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

We began this week’s show with an old favourite from the Dolly Rocker Movement and ended it with a new one by Pinkunoizu, with the usual diverse mixture in between. There were also several new acquisitions waiting for us at the Post Office to enrich the mix, including the new “Psych Tribute to the Doors” compilation and the very tasty “Love, Poetry & Revolution” boxset. Throw in some Electric Prunes, Citradels, Vibravoid, Jim Noir and a bunch of other interesting artists and that’s the show – so until next week  [when we’ll hopefully have a very special guest to talk to].....
