Donna Summer agged 63 died from cancer and it was announced on Last Word BBC Radio 4 and the
state of independenca shall be was found to be dated in and around 1983 when I was teaching full time
primarily here in the UK and in London so there are a lot of memories of the career kicking in with this
news of the death of this Disco Queen at 63!
I must admit I was very busy and its not till retirement that I got around to listening to the music of the
past the 7Os and 8Os which was Disco and Pop as I had little time off to enjoy a personal
recreation so its worthwhile to check it out and there are many disco songs attributed to this artist.
One would remain forever in the dark were it not for the BBC Radio 4 Last Word programme on air
as it cites obituary news on famous people some of whom I know little about other than the prize
book, or the No 1 Hit in the UK or the USA.
But when scrolling down Turkish Digest I found my attention was caught by the headline ... Stevie
Wonder to appear in Istanbul on the 14 Of September 2O12 and I think its a "First" for this legend of
popular culture who is quoted as 62 so there are still some legends living and around and playing out
there in the great city of Istanbul which straddles two continents, Asia and Europe and therefore everyone
is advised to get the tickets fast
I was deep in this Obituary of Donna Summer when standing at a bus stop somewhere in Southampton and
a car flashed past me with flags sticking from its side mirrors so I put it down to the Chelsea vs Munich
football match and Chelsea won so there is to be a parade so I guess that seemed what that was all about!
We live, we die, survive life on earth
Life is but a short trip
Birth life and death
Make it work all along the pathways
In this world of ordinary people
