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
You have heard me say before the best thing about shooting at a local range is making friends with people who like to shoot! They're always interested in what you are shooting, and showing you what they are shooting. There is a camaraderie to share techniques and experiences. One such friend asked me to shoot his Kel Tec Sub 2000 rifle. If it goes BANG! I'm in.
I own a Kel Tec 9mm pistol and didn't really like it until I learned the proper way to operate it's double action. I also learned Kel Tec is a pretty good company that makes a variety of affordable guns. The Sub-2000 is one of them.
The first big feature of the rifle is that is folds in half. I usually like to review how concealable a gun is and this is seriously cool! It is a semi-auto carbine for pistol cartridges and comes in 9mm Lugar and 40 Caliber Smith and Wesson. It is light, well balanced, and easy to handle. Where a head shot with a pistol at 50 yards can be a challenge; with the Sub-2000 it is no problem even for the most inexperienced shooter. It has a ton of customizable features and is affordable with an MSRP around 400 dollars. Invest in a high capacity magazine and you'll be shooting all day.
Kel Tec Sub-2000 Positives:
-folds in half-really cool!
-light, adaptable and easy to use
-shoots a variety of rounds you probably have on hand.
Kel Tec Sub-2000 Negatives:
-more of a weapon for target practice than home defense.
-not an AR-15. :)
