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

A few notable new releases played on Technicolour Dreaming this week included The Honey Pot's latest, "Inside The Whale", which has a real West-Coast 60's psych feel to it, out now on MegaDodo Records; and The Murlocs new one "Young Blindness" - and if you were planning to buy the coloured vinyl, it's too late!! Melbourne bands were well represented on the show, making up 6 of the selections, plus the usual French oddities, some Canadian coolness, as well as tracks from Germany, Norway, Russia and The Ukraine - there's so much fantastic music out there, both old and new, the world over.
