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

Apologies for the late posting and abbreviated introduction ..... does “technical difficulties” strike a chord?  Perhaps more of a dis-chord!?  Anyway, this week we ventured into New Zealand’s golden era of psychedelia, which ran far longer than elsewhere, going  from about 1966 through to the early 1970’s, with a supportive industry  of small studios recording this output on vinyl, with most being distributed a large company, EMI and preserved for posterity.  Hence the large number of bands and songs from all over New Zealand to be found in the on-going “A Day In My Mind’s Mind” compilation series which we featured as our “Compilation of the Week”. Of course we also played our usual selection of old and new from around the world for your edification... so, barring any further technical problems, we’ll join you again next week, whilst in the meantime.....
