We continued talking afterwards, and four years later present the fourth and final part of that interview. The show also features extracts of an interview Dec’s brother Con did with Carl Gresham. Sadly, Carl and Con have both recently died. Topics covered in the show include: starting out in Ireland, chart fixing, high jinks at the Royal Variety Performance, the celebrities who were wonderful people and ones who weren’t, Charlie Chaplin, publicity stunts and Tony Hancock.
