The Queen of Disco, 63 year old Donna Summer, passed away this morning in Florida. Ms Summer was a 5 time Grammy Award winner, and recorded the music that was the soundtrack for the disco era.  Early reports are saying that she died of cancer.

I met Donna Summer when I was living in Nashville, working at WSM, the Grand Ole Opry station- She was living in Nashville at the time too. I was working part time at Pottery Barn, and she used to come in all the time. The only time I actually talked to her was when I was in a flower shop, and she walked in on a 100 degree day looking as cool as a cucumber. I introduced myself to her, and she was the nicest thing. Really , really sweet. R.I.P. Ms Donna.
