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

Obscured By... alumnus Michael Hunter returned to the Tuesday 2-4pm timeslot for this week, to indulge in some Technicolour Dreaming.  Lots of long, psych & related songs from Norway, Sweden, Poland, Australia et al?  Check.  Also, a 19-minute long jam (or "gauzy lo-fi patina" if you believe their blurb) from Golden Daze and some recently unearthed mid-60s demos from Brisbane bands such as The Down And Out on a limited edition vinyl LP that was released late 2015 and has already sold out!

A few local rarities by Headband (soon to be inducted into the SA Music Hall Of Fame) and Some Dream were also included, along with the almost obligatory Beatles cover and the late Jim Keays covering a Cheap Trick song.   Normal service will resume next week...
