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:
Brought to You By Heartland Outdoors 330-5774
Today I thought I would do something a little different. I have reviewed a lot of guns in this blog, but somehow my aim hasn't improved much. David Elderton of Ky Tac Holsters and Instruction, and an instructor with Heartland Outdoors offered some tips.
Just watching my performance David imediatley offered an encyclopedia of better ways to shoot. I encourage you to take one of Heartland Outdoors' classes. The biggest thing David taught me was my grip. Thus far I have been holding my gun like this:
It is what he calls the "Cup and Saucer" grip. The problem with the grip is it allows a lot of energy from the gun to kick back which keeps your aim inconsistent as evident with this target:
The hits should be centered in the middle of the target. Not up and to the right.
David suggested I change my trip to this one.
My left hand clasped over my right knuckles, firmly grasped to allow my right to concentrate on pulling the trigger. This grip is much better at steadying the pistol, and keeping the shots better grouped. In spite of this target already having several hits (the taped holes), the dark holes in the center are mine taking David's advice.
I'll update you next week on my progress with more of David's suggestions.
P.S.... Heartland Outdoors' next Zombie Apocalypse match is Sunday October 28, 2012, but participation is limited to 50 shooters. Sign up is stongly suggested so if you want to come:
