Jeff Lynne shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast soon before his appearance with ELO at Glastonbury in 2016.

He is an enormously respected and loved producer as well as musician. He was a member of Birmingham 60s pop heroes the Move and he masterminded the million-selling Electric Light Orchestra. He's also worked as a producer with the likes of Brian Wilson, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and the Beatles.

Jeff talks about his earliest musical loves and the start of a lifetime obsessed with music production, creating the early ELO records, their world conquering 1977 album Out of the Blue and the recording of Mr. Blue Sky. He also chats about producing the aforementioned musical legends and his role in the most super supergroup of all time the Travelling Wilburys. He also recalls his Hyde Park comeback show in 2014, playing to an audience of 50,000.
