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 is the 350th post on The Cat and The Brat blog, which has been going since January 2011, with early posts only consisting of a playlist, but gradually with video clips, and full release details being added along the way. Except for the short period when the Brat was unable to do the show, and until my return to radio after his passing, the Brat and I posted every week since that first attempt, with co-hosts Michael Hunter and Harry keeping things going when I've had to take a rare week off.

My silent current co-host, Harry, seems to have an uncanny knack of picking tracks for the second half of the show, that I was intending to play the following week, making my job all the trickier, but increasing your listening pleasure! It's always interesting to see what Harry will come up with (Harry doesn't like pronouncing French and Swedish track names, hence the silence)...but I digress... anyway, here is the playlist for this week's show - and enjoy your Easter break, if you get one!
