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

Some old 60's Aussie favourites, a few new discoveries, and the usual suspects - this week's show had it all. I particularly liked the track by Sir Robin and the Longbowmen, who hail from Dresden in Germany - can't believe that I hadn't come across this band before! Somehow I also managed to miss the latest release from The Selfish Cales, which came out last year - more psych goodness from these natives of Torino, Italy. Speaking of which, I've also included (at the end of the blog) a groovy promo clip that I came across, of the 2014 Psych Out 25 Degrees festival in Italy - the things you find on YouTube. Enjoy!
