the story: “As a child, spending the night with my great aunt Maggie B was a treat. She worked the swing shift. So, I couldn’t even get to her house until well after my bedtime. On Saturdays we’d get up just before noon & head to the record store in her yellow convertible Dodge Dart with the leopard print seat covers, 8-track blaring, and pick up all the 45s released in a handful of genres. The rest of our day was dedicated to our weekly livingroom dance party. I loved being her ‘June Bug’.” –Rachel Gibson

Swing shift is over, Friday put to bed
Saturday’s comin’, heels over head
“To the record store we go,” Maggie Bee said.
“Give me 45s, every new release.
The hits & the B Sides, both up & down beats
Country, ROCK & soul, play & repeat.”

Cut a Rug, June Bug, Cut a Rug
One step, two steps, Jitterbug
Cut a Rug, June Bug, Cut a Rug
One two three, baby dance with me
One two three, baby dance with me

Push back the couch, sofa table too.
Roll up the rug. Close the curtains blue.
Kick off your heels. Find your dan-cin’ shoes.
Open up the console. Stack the records high.
Be sure to check the speed–It’s 45.
Let the vinyl spin & drop–one at a time.

A few minutes left, last record drops.
We’ve heard them all from 10 to the top.
What do we do when the music stops?

Until next week, Saturday you see.
Stack them back high, every new release.
Play them all again, both the UP & down beats.

    This is one of my favorites. The song, the story behind it, and the magic of that guitar-playing mad-for-music Jon Ives….just the thing to get my heart rate up when I need a lift.
