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 always play bands from around the world but this week a large percentage of the music came from Australia, our home turf, yet it wasn’t planned – it just happened that way, and even included a brilliant new track from local Adelaide band Glass Skies, a taster from their forthcoming EP. There were tracks from new bands such as Tasmania’s Violet Swells and the Babe Rainbow who hail from Brisbane, plus some old favourites such as the Laurels, the Lovetones, Black Cab and the Citradels. Moving out into the wider world, we heard from Sweden’s Tor-Peders, Japan’s Kikagaku Moyo, Wales’ Crystal Jacqueline and Finland’s Octopus Syng, as well as other current favourites such as the Luck of Eden Hall, les Limiñanas and Holy Wave plus lots more. All in all, another burst of Technicolour Dreaming with the Cat & the Brat on Adelaide’s 3D Radio, streaming live to the world.....
..... and here is the playlist, with some visuals to contemplate – especially check out the TwilightsOnce Upon a Twilight”, which is the ‘part one’ of the pilot for their aborted 1967 TV show [other half next week] – look for various 60’s Australian pop stars and actors doing cameos – so bad, it’s good!.....
