Tonight Ricky pays tribute to Linda Ronstadt who revealed this week she has Parkinson's disease and can no longer sing. Songwriter Jimmy Webb and Nashville artist Caitlin Rose describe what Linda means to them.

It's exactly 45 years since The Byrds released their country-rock defining album, Sweetheart Of The Rodeo.

And Ricky will be spending some time looking at the music and songs of The Father Of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe, featuring a couple of new releases that continue his legacy.
