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 Cat& the Brat were unable to do this week’s edition of Technicolour Dreaming, but fellow 3D Radio announcer Bryan, of Tuesday morning’s great “Mellowscream” show, dropped into the control console and saved the day! Following the Cat & Brat show guidelines [psych, garage, surf, punk, pop, glam etc ...] was no stretch as these included his faves as well, so we heard a diverse bunch of tunes encompassing all these and more... including three tracks on which Peter Brat played, from a teenage single with Rashamra up to the most recent with the Molting Vultures. Thanks Bryan, much appreciated! So, without further ado....
