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

This show’s “Compilation of the Week” is a celebration of record label International Artists’ collating and releasing of the brilliant psych, garage, blues and outsider music which exploded out of Texas in the 1960’s, the best-known being that of the 13th Floor Elevators – we speak of course of "Never Ever Land : 83 Texan Nuggets from International Artists Records 1965 - 1970", a 3-CD boxset of selections from the label’s extensive catalogue. We featured just a few of the many artists of that era including the Bubble Puppy, Lost & Found and the wonderful Endle St Cloud, but there is much more great music to be found on these discs – check them out! The rest of the show proceeded as usual with psychedelia, related music and a few odds and sods. So, until next week.....
