We've lost an icon of Canadian music: Rita MacNeil was born in Big Pond, Cape Breton County, and she always did a pretty great job of putting her community on the map. Rita is best known for her many albums of country and folk. She's a had Top 40 hits in North America and the UK, and she hosted 'Rita and Friends' on CBC TV from 1994 to 1997. She passed away on April 16, 2013, and tonight we're airing her last interview with us, which originally aired in December of last year.
