Masters Apprentices [music videos]

The Masters Apprentices were a rock band (formed in Adelaide, South Australia) which performed from 1965 to 1972. They originally came together in 1964 as The Mustangs, but changed their name in 1965. Their lead singer was Jim Keays (born in Scotland in 1946, migrated to Australia in 1951). The Masters Apprentices disbanded in 1972, although they did re-form several times in later years. Their most enduring hits were “Turn up Your Radio”, “Because I Love You”, and “Living in a Child’s Dream”.
