"Ted Ray next week folks!"

Plant was making a joke. The Paris Cinema was principally used by the BBC for recording comedy shows for Radio 4 ie the Goon shows were recorded there. I remember the stairwell down to the stage and seats contained photos of these stars recording their shows.
"Ted Ray next week folks" Ted Ray was a comedian who often recorded shows there.
The Paris is sadly no more, the BBC moved out in the late 80`s. The property is now occupied by a Japanese restaurant so you can still sit in that hallowed space and imagine the roar of Zeppelin hitting that lucky 400 all those years ago.
