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 went from Perth, Australia and Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014 back through to mid-60’s Los Angeles and many points in between on this week’s show, including new tracks from Mt Mountain, Chad & the Meatbodies, the Allah-Las and Paul Messis plus some older faves from Devo, Sun Dial and the Zombies. Our “Band of the Week” feature highlighted Finnish psychedelecists Octopus Syng who first came to our attention via songs on various Fruits de Mer label compilations and have now released their new album, “Reverberating Garden Number 7”, on Mega Dodo, another fine independent UK label. Then, topically, there were songs from both the Ukraine and Russia, by Ummagma and Polska Radio One respectively. So, until next week.....
