Louisiana born, but Oklahoma bred. Lee Matthews has been in the radio business since 1982 both behind the mike, behind the scenes and in most all formats. "Talk Radio is my favorite format because it is the one format left that still reaches the listener one on one", Lee said.
One of Lee's favorite charities is the Leukemia Lymphoma society. "Working with the late Mark Shannon tought me a lot about living. If dancing around Bricktown stark naked would help raise money to find a cure for that terrible disease then I'll do it!". Frequently you will see Lee running in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, and other local races, in Mark's honor raising money for the cause.
Lee's other hobbies include cooking, music, scuba diving, model railroading, antique clocks, and playing the ukulele. "Nothing bad can happen to you when you are playing a ukulele", he said.
Lee's mom is from Louisiana, but his father and father's family hails from Seminole and Maud; which is why you will frequently hear him reference it on the air. "I have a grand aunt that once said at a gathering, 'Maud, I sure do love that little town!' and it has become a family joke I use on the air".

My Favorite Place To Shoot:
Heartland Outdoors, the Kiwanis Club, and Silver Leaf Shooting Sports held a benefit clay shoot for the Children's Miracle Network.
Over 80 shooters competed for prizes, The Mean House provided lunch, and we raised over 20 Thousand dollars for children with catestrophic diseases. Here's To Next Year! If you are a shooter, and not participating, you are missing out on a lot of fun!

Mike Morgan and the 4 Warn Storm Team are predicting bad weather this weekend. Now is a good time to review their suggested checklist.
Forget The Wizard of Oz notion that "twisters" only happen in Kansas. Tornados have been reported in every state. And while they generally occur during spring and summer, they can happen anytime during the year. With winds swirling at 200 miles an hour or more, a tornado can destroy just about anything in its path. Generally, there are weather signs and warnings that will alert you to take precautions. Be prepared by having various family members do each of the items on the checklist below. Then get together to discuss and finalize your Home Tornado Plan.
Plan and get ready: Pick a safety spot in your home where family members could gather during a tornado. (If you have a basement, make it your safety spot.) Make sure there are no windows or glass doors in the area. Keep this place uncluttered. If you live in a mobile home, choose another safety spot in a sturdy, nearby building.
Basement: ____ Yes ____ No
If yes, basement is your safety spot. If no (or if you're in a high-rise building), choose another safety spot.
Location of safety spot:______________________________
Put together a tornado Safety Kit in a clearly labeled, easy-to-grab box.
Location of Tornado Safety Kit:_______________________
Write instructions on how and when to turn off your utilities - electricity, gas, and water.
Make sure all family members know the name of the county or parish where you live or are traveling, since tornado WATCHES and WARNINGS are issued by the county or parish.
Name of county/parish where you live:_______________________
Name of county/parish where you are traveling:________________

The National Transportation Safety Board is encouraging the nation take the rest of the world's lead and lower the legally "drunk" limit be lowered from .08 to .05.
Supporters say it would cut drunk driving deaths in half; critics say it would make responsible behavior illegal. Basically if you are a 120 pound woman it would mean you were over the limit at one drin. 160 pound man? Two drinks. What do you think?
