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

Another psychedelic spin around the world from the 1960’s to the present? Yes, it’s another edition of Technicolour Dreaming on 3D Radio 93.7fm, featuring new songs from Lay Llamas, H.Hawkline and Haliewa back to “should-have-been-hits” by the Pretty Things, Ray Brown & the Whispers and Del Shannon, as well as a couple more tracks from Fruits de Mer's "A Momentary Lapse of Vinyl" compilation. Then there was a set of songs by Canadian psychedelicists Elephant Stone, our “Band of the Week”. Led by sitarist Rishi Dhir, formerly of the High Dials, they have released two albums plus an anthology and are psych festival favourites. The most recent LP, “The Three Poisons” has received great reviews and has quickly become one of our picks for “best of the year”. We finished with a blast of girl garage fuzz from Melbourne’s Reprobettes, and so until next week..... is the playlist, plus visuals.....
