In a 13-part series, Johnnie Walker tells the story of Atlantic Records. This first episode looks at the early days and how the company was set up.

Atlantic Records was home to some of the greatest rhythm and blues and soul singers of all time, including Otis Redding and Ray Charles. It was Led Zeppelin's label. It was also where the songwriting team of Leiber and Stoler and producer Jerry Wexler carved out their careers under the watchful eye of the founder and president Ahmet Ertegun.

We hear from Ertegun about moving to America with his father, his love of black music and how he started what was to become a global business.
