New in Castro Tunes: Donna Summer
I came out 30 years ago this month after seeing a photo on the front page of the New York Times showing 200,000 people marching in New York's gay pride parade. Donna Summer ruled back then with hits including I Feel Love, one of five tracks I've just loaded in the jukebox, in the right-hand sidebar. The world sure is tiny: Sparky knew Summer in the early 1970s, when he was a student in Germany and Summer lived there with her first husband, Helmuth Sommer.
