This might be a bit of a stretch on the topic... but here goes. There are twists in the rocking chair, she would twist the crank on the victorola, and if she weren't so old she could get up and do "the twist." I designed this for my pops who is in a bit of a folk band. They tend to perform at old folks homes and their music is definitely geared towards the older crowd. I look forward to when I can take it eaasy and just ROCK! all day.
