(JP: 'When I was a lad and first told jokes, one of the jokes that delighted me actually, was when somebody said 'What's black and white and red all over?', I don't know the answer to that, that's too good for me, and somebody said, a newspaper you see, it's black and white and it's 'read' all over. I thought it was magnificent, still do really and this is a pathetic reason, probably a terrible reason that is for ever being playing a record. That was Red Rag and this is Black And White Rag.')
