By day, Meghan Brozanic works as a social media and production coordinator for the National Association of Realtors. By night, she sheds her chrysalis and transforms into DJ Gloria Vanderbilt, spinner of pure vinyl. In this form, Brozanic has manned the turntables at such West Town and North Side establishments as Beauty Bar
, The Whistler
, and most regularly, The Charleston
, a historical corner bar tucked away in Bucktown. It’s there that she co-hosts Champale Nights—a ‘70s and ‘80s themed set featuring smooth R&B, yacht rock, and songs by Laurel Canyon singer-songwriters—every second Saturday. Although Brozanic enjoys spinning records of the ‘70s and ‘80s, her true passion is ‘90s hip-hop and dance, which she spins occasionally during solo sets at The Whistler and Phyllis’ Musical Inn.
