[Repeated from Sunday 1.30pm.] Mentalist Master J in conversation about the real life of the artist. This week: Master J puts the tricky questions to Dec Cluskey. Dec (along with his brother Con) was a founding member of popular music group The Bachelors. Throughout the 1960s they had more chart hits than the Rolling Stones, and at the height of Beatlemania in '64 they outsold The Beatles. We will find out what is was like to sell more than 10 million records a year; how they were on Top of the Pops so often the BBC gave them their own wardrobe department; and how they have managed to stay motivated to keep performing and releasing new music to this day.
