"They put love on an angelic throne. Love is the same today, except it's gone down to a more debased situation. Too many do's and don'ts. I want to thrill the audience with these songs from the days of the Victrola. You know, everyone talks of black man's soul, rhythm, and blues. No one talks about the white man's soul. The white man's soul, in music, was songs like 'In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree' and 'Give My Regards to Broadway.'"

"If at a show, I sing one or two songs from that time period (1920s), in the style of that singer...if I feel I did the singers justice, and it magnifies to the crowd and the audience connects to me...when they think they're coming out to see 'Tiptoe Thru the Tulips' and they hear something from 70 years ago that hits them in the heart...that's what has kept me alive."
