Ahead of The Rolling Stones' appearance at Glastonbury, another chance to hear Mick Jagger hand-pick a selection of artists and music that influenced the band's ground-breaking sound, in particular their classic album Exile On Main St. In conversation with Paul Sexton, Mick talks through a wide-ranging playlist that reflects his own, and the band's, love of classic R&B, gospel, country and reggae.

The fascinating mix of material conjures up the musical environment of the late 60s and turn of the 70s, in which the Stones, and so many of their peers, were scaling new and ever more eclectic creative heights. In a show that includes both vintage hits and lesser-known gems, we'll find out which of the band's fellow rock acts from that era have Jagger's personal seal of approval. We'll also hear some brilliant soul records that have remained his all-time favourites; plus singer-songwriters; giants of country and Americana; and much more besides.
