Top Tunes ’17: Aaron Payne< < Back to
Who can believe it? Another year has come and gone, leaving but memories of records beloved past! This is an installment in an ongoing holiday season series for WOUB, in which some of the area’s favorite music nerds share what moved them, musically, in the year 2017.
Aaron Payne is a reporter for WOUB and contributes to the Ohio Valley ReSource and has been part of the team since May of 2016. He’s enjoyed living with his partner in a place tucked away in the woods of Athens County. They used to be in a Christian ska band together when they were in high school and college. She still plays the same trumpet and is more of a studio musician now. He doesn’t play the saxophone much anymore but makes a lot of songs on GarageBand that he deletes soon after finishing them.
