WUNC is working with several teen reporters this summer. The young people are learning Journalism 101 from seasoned NPR and WUNC reporters.
On their first day on the job, we asked each reporter to recommend a song. The idea is to pull together a fun 2014 summer playlist for you.
Here are the recommendations.
Jamayah Parrish: "Pumped up Kicks" by Foster the People:
Thar Thwai: "Stay High" by Tove Lo
Emmanuel Johnson: "Snare" by Mellowhype
Lili Morales: "I Luh Ya Papi" by Jennifer Lopez
Chelsea Korynta: "Applause" by Lady Gaga
Morgan Manson: "Trophies" by Drake
And as a bonus, 2 of our leaders give their favorites:
Kamayah Truitt: "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea
Lauren Spohrer: "Dark Horse" by Katy Perry
