About Payton:

Payton started to listening to KSHE when he was little because of his dad, but much more so after he started driving! He says it has helped to influence his music tastes drastically

Payton listens to KSHE for several hours a day and looks forward to the Morning Rock Show and the Klassics Show, which has introduced him to songs that aren’t played as much nowadays, many of which have become favorites of his!

Payton’s dad has some old KSHE stickers, one of which is on the lid of his old turntable/8-track/radio. One of his early memories is hearing “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” as part of the 7th Day when he was around three or four. He regards that as a great musical awakening in his life!

Payton looks forward to the Daily Dose of LZ all day. As someone who is an obsessive Led Zeppelin fan, he enjoys hearing some of his lesser known favorites being played!

Payton also looks forward to seeing what albums are on the list for the 7th Day, as they are usually wide ranging in artist and style!

Payton’s hobbies include reading, writing and playing guitar. He has played guitar since he was nine and was first inspired to play, after hearing The Beatles!

Payton says listening to KSHE has helped him get into artists that are now among his favorites. Some of his favorite artists include The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Greta Van Fleet and The J. Geils Band! He loves how KSHE plays a mix of old and new rock!

Payton’s first concert was The Who in 2016 when his uncle took him for his sixteenth birthday!
