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

As you can see from the playlist below, I have finally received my copy of the "Astonishing Sound Show Stories Volume 2" compilation. Most of the bands are so unknown and obscure that I couldn't find any clips for the songs I played, but there's some great music on this comp, so if you want to get a copy, you'd better get your skates on, as there's under 50 copies left. I've included the quite frankly, strange and bizarre, but entertaining promo videos for this release below. And speaking of strange, I had to include the extremely groovy Brigitte Bardot clip for "Contact", which pretty unusual, even by 1967 standards. Enjoy!
