Rosa Rio, R.I.P.
Too much sadness here to comprehend at this point, but Tampa icon Rosa Rio, the longtime Tampa Theatre organist who, over the course of a 75-year-plus career in music, performed for and with the likes of Orson Welles and Cole Porter, has died at age 107. Andy Boyle and Colleen Jenkins have the story.

We were lucky enough to see Rio perform last summer in Ybor City. Click here for a review.
