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 some new compilations to share with you this week, dear 3D Radio listeners, including a double-CD of Syd Barrett/Pink Floyd covers, which was an end-of-the-year bonus from the lovely people at Fruits de Mer Records in the UK, as well as another fine Active Listener compilation, “Forever Changing – A Tribute to Love’s Forever Changes LP”, both of which we shall certainly be plundering over the months ahead. There were new tracks by artists from various parts of the globe including Tasmania’s Violet Swells, Spain’s My Expansive Awareness and Canada’s Elephant Stone plus some older ones from the likes of Cheval Sombre, Wire, Sons of Adam and Russia’s excellent Polska Radio One. Then there was our “Artiste of the Week”.... Scotland’s own Jim Noir, whose four albums and plethora of singles and EPs gave us lots to choose from, starting with a track from his brilliant new album “Finnish Line”. We realise we say this about our feature artists each week but that doesn’t make it less true.... you should investigate the Jim Noir back-catalogue – you won’t be sorry!! To finish the show, we dug out one of our all-time faves, the 2011 album by Dark Ocean Colors and with that, we’ll leave you until next week.....
