“Happy Thanksgiving From Our Fam to Yours” – A Thanksgiving Dinner Premium Mixtape

It’s that time of the year again. Potatoes are being mashed, turkeys (or tofurkeys!) are being stuffed, and families are being brought together, only to tear each other down by trying to figure out which members voted for Trump, which ones voted for Clinton, and which ones thought Gary Johnson or Jill Stein ever had a chance. Of course, we at KXSU don’t encourage underage drinking, but for those of you who are 21 and up, the of-age adults over here at the station will likely be tossing back some mimosas right there with you (cheers).

We hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving scenario playlist that KXSU’s editorial staff has put together for you! Feel free to play it in the background whislt you enjoy your dinner, with the optimal sound level being maximum high. Season’s greetings, y’all.
