Nowadays, major labels are increasingly sidelined, but there was a time when record execs held the power to deeply influence the world’s musical culture. Today, we speak with Jac Holzman, founder of both Elektra and Nonesuch records, and the man who signed The Doors, Queen, and Carly Simon. Also: Elektra's parent company, Warner Music Group, is mining a treasure trove of photographs, memorabilia and documents in a vast archives. We hear about the project. Plus: A live performance by sweet-voiced indie-pop duo Azure Ray.
