Updating a Label control in one user control from another user control - how?!?!

Hi all,
I have a main page in my music store site that has 5 user controls on it with 1 always showing main content and the others being things like a shopping cart, "best sellers", genre list etc (a la amazon). From the main content control I want to be able to set some label controls in my shopping basket control but I just can't seem to work out the syntax for how to do this:
Here's the code I'm using - I'm trying to go to the 4th user control on the page (my shopping basket) then find the appropraite label, cast it locally as a Label then update the value:
Label _songs = (Label)Page.Controls[3].FindControl("lblSongsInBasket");

Label _total = (Label)Page.Controls[3].FindControl("lblSongsTotalCost");
_songs.Text = "5";
_total.Text = "9.99";

Nothing I've tried works - can some kind soul point me in the right direction here?

Each control inherits from Framework.UserControlBase, just like DotNetNuke's User control in DNN\Controls\User.ascx.vb. As a matter of fact, this control is doing the exact same thing I am trying to do. It is a web user control with its own resx file being used by another web user control (See ...
