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".

Lee, I really appreciate the homework you have done for us on the State Supreme Court Justices. (see later blog entries)
So, how does the average work-a-day Joe (or Josephene) find out about the Civil and Criminal Court Judges on the ballot for retention? I did find some limited information on Civil Court Judges made available by the Oklahoma Civil Justice Council, but that was only from a liability perspective.
I listen to your show most evenings on the drive home (Tinker to Edmond). God
bless, and "Guns for everybody",
Here are the Judges up for Retention.
Court of Criminal Appeals:
Carlene Clancy Smith
Court of Civil Appeals:
P. Thomas Thorulugh
Robert D. Bell
I have looked, and read and looked. The reason it is hard to find information on how these judges have performed is because you have to go to the individual cases they presided over. Well, there are several hundred. Of the ones I did find, I cannot find a reason to NOT retain all of them!
