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 had a guest in the studio with us this week ... Vic from Walking Bird Records came in to give us a sneak preview of their latest release, the album “Look!” by Adelaide’s own Tom Redwood, recorded in Vic’s Walking Bird studio and featuring members of Vic’s own band, Vic Conrad & the First Third on some of the songs. Though basically ‘singer/song-writer’ in genre, there are more electric ‘acid-folk’ and ‘soft-psych’ elements in some of the songs, which we found appropriate for Technicolour Dreaming – definitely worth checking out! Our “Band of the Week” fetured UK band the Sunchymes, whom regular listeners will recognise as long-time favourites on this show. Aaron from the band has assured us that a new album is nearing completion and we’re hoping that this will be the one that finally gets them the recognition they richly deserve – a very talented band! There were also tracks from Ty Segall, Grand Rapids, Wellwater Conspiracy and Singapore Sling plus a single from the wonderfully-named Dr Cosmo’s Tape Lab and much more.....
