Scott Walker, one of the 20th century's most iconic songwriters, has died aged 76.

He first rose to fame as one half of the Walker Brothers in the 1960s. The duo had two number one hits, 'Make It Easy on Yourself' and 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore'.

Walker later went on to release a number of acclaimed and boundary-pushing solo albums, Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3 and Scott 4.

He was a key influence on many artists, perhaps most notably David Bowie and Radiohead.

John Caddell and Larissa Nolan looked back at his legacy in our music slot.

They also reflected on the meteoric rise of Picture This, who are set to play five nights at Dublin's 3Arena this week, and the news that an algorithm has signed a record deal with Warner Music Group.
