The music of Linda Ronstadt and exploring the theme of Parkinson's disease.

Next Tuesday evening on A Mixed Bag with Chris B on 93.7 Edge FM in the Bega Valley, we will be exploring the theme of Parkinson's disease, and playing the music of Linda Ronstadt.  Linda Ronstadt was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2013.  Sadly, she is no longer able to sing.

You will hear an interview with Bob McDonald from Merimbula, on the Far South Coast of New South who has been living with Parkinson's Disease for 20 years.  He kindly agreed to share his story.  As you can see from the video below, Bob knows how to live life to the full, and maintains a positive attitude.
If you live in the Bega Valley, and you would like to hear more about Bob's story, tune into 93.7 Edge FM on Tuesday 29 April 2014.  If you are unable to tune in, I will post the interview with Bob onto this blog next week.  My favourite quote from Bob is "I have Parkinson's, Parkinson's does not have me".
