Think I might give this a listen to Grin

Get Rhythm – Ry Cooder At 60
Saturday 24 February
8.00-9.00pm BBC RADIO 2

As the ever-productive Ry Cooder turns 60, Nick Barraclough discovers how this most eclectic of artists has kept on top of his game.
Ry Cooder is the guitarist's guitarist. Whether playing old-time mountain music, rock, blues, jazz or Tex-Mex, Ry Cooder does it best. Nick talks to his hero about his early years in Santa Monica with Taj Mahal in the Rising Sons, through his sessions playing for everyone from Jackie de Shannon to Bill Monroe, to the combination of LA soul and Tex-Mex in the Chicken Skin Revue, evocative film soundtracks such as Paris Texas and, of course, the phenomenon that was The Buena Vista Social Club.
Among those adding their voices to the general acclaim are Taj Mahal, fellow band member and songwriter John Hiatt, Cuban musicians from the Buena Vista Social Club sessions and the other great Los Angelean guitarist, Albert Lee.

O to 62 in sixtytwo years.  Where does the time go?

Cheers, Hester ... and how come they didn't interview Nick Lowe?
