imageDJs Mike Pope and Jay McCracken are ready to spin two of Atlanta’s gay New Year’s Eve parties on Saturday. But before they do, they each give us a preview of their Top 10 playlists and latest podcasts. Listen in.

A New Year’s deluge is set to rock Atlanta on Saturday night, including more gay celebrations than you can handle, but might have fun trying. While touring DJ Oren Nizri does up Jungle’s futuristic fantasy 2102: Step Into The Future bash, Pope (top photo) lends his talents to his favorite cause with the Joining Hearts New Year’s Eve benefit at Heretic, and McCracken (bottom photo) takes the reigns of the 6th Annual Party Like a Rockstar at Amsterdam.
