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

Well, this has got to be (nearly) a first for Technicolour Dreaming - a video clip for every single song … well, there were two bands that I couldn’t find a clip for, but that’s pretty good! 
This week there were two brand, spanking new releases to play tracks from - Sydney’s The Dandelion, with the their wonderfully named “Seeds, Flowers and the Magical Powers of the Dandelion”, which sounds as good as the title is long; and a great new Mega Dodo release from Lisbon band Beautify Junkyards, whose CD “The Beast Shouted Love” was recorded outside for the large part, and this is definitely reflected in the mood that they have managed to create - great summer listening! And this show is dedicated to Peter Brat, who would have been celebrating his birthday today - so enjoy!
