Kennywood Park Band Organ "Sugartime"
By Matthew Caulfield

Joe Kemph asked in yesterday's MMD what roll the song that goes
"Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at supper time"
is on, because that tune was the last one he heard at Kennywood many
years ago.

The title is simply "Sugartime," a fox trot composed by Charlie
Phillips and Odis Echols in late 1957.  The McGuire Sisters version
became a hit in 1958, and Ralph Tussing arranged it for all three
styles of band organ rolls that his T.R.T. Manufacturing Company
issued.   Since Kennywood plays the style 150 roll, Joe would have
heard it either on original T.R.T. roll 13299 or on composited
Play-Rite recut roll 13298-13299 -- probably the former, if it was
many years ago.

The complete contents of these rolls can be seen on my style 150 roll

 [ The catchy melody of "Sugartime" is taken from a jolly Polish
 [ song called "Hupaj Siupaj".   Hear a fine polka band playing it

 [ I believe Czech lyrics also exist.  -- Robbie
