Nov 20, 2012 >> Thanksgiving Jam: DJ Megan Taylor serves up a Turkey Day mix

Whether you’re spending Thanksgiving with family or friends, one thing is for sure: the right atmosphere can make or break a holiday. Our spotlight this week, DJ Megan Taylor, knows a thing or two about creating the perfect (musical) ambiance. And although we’re anxious to bust out “Winter Wonderland”, Megan turns the tables to a slightly more fun beat. We hit her up for a killer set of tunes for the most modern of Thanksgiving dinners.

Her thoughts on a Turkey Day playlist? She’s thankful for new artists (like breakout stars and local bro/sis duo Wild Belle) and the ever-so-subtle nod to the hippie vibe of the 1970’s—”There’s a feeling of nostalgia for the holidays but with modern music,” Megan says, “It’s basically a hipster’s afternoon dinner mix that even your grandma might like.” We concur.

“It’s Too Late” // Wild Belle
“Hold Me” // Haim
“New Beat” // Toro Y Moi
“Orgins” // Tennis
