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

Community Radio can be fraught with challenges, not the least technical ones... I seemed to be beset with these from the start of the show, unfortunately having to cancel my scheduled interview with The Citradels, and things got worse from there, with CD players and computer refusing to work!. But no matter, it's all a challenge, and things seemed to come good in the end (but only after the hastily grabbed Scientist's 7" "stuck" due to overuse!). The show featured a Residents/Beatles double-play of "Flying", a hell of a lot of songs that started and ended in phasing, feedback and backwards effects, and much, much more. Who knows what will happen next week? While I ponder that question, here's the playlist.....
