After 11 on Worlds of Music, Trevor Reekie features an interview with Jac Holzman  who co-founded the eclectic and enigmatic record label Elektra Records in October 1950. The now legendary label began by signing artists at the forefront of the American folk boom of the sixties, including Phil Ochs, Tom Rush and Tom Paxton. Gradually the label went on to launch the careers of some of the most influential names in American rock including Paul Butterfield, Love, MC5, The Stooges (featuring Iggy Pop) and the Doors.
