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
Mike Sanders of the KTOK News Department pulled me aside the other day and asked my advice for a good shotgun for self-defense; especially for his wife. I couldn’t answer. I grew up around guns, but not a lot of hunting. I know shotguns, but have never owned nor shot one regularly. I did what I always do when I don’t know-ask someone who does.
David Elderton, who runs a lot of the shooting matches at Heartland Outdoors, also has a
business coaching marksmanship and making custom holsters and shooting gear. He suggested the old fashioned Coach Gun. This particular model is a Stoeger 12 gage.
Namesake of “Riding Shotgun” this side by side short barreled shotgun was chosen by the
guys who usually rode next to the driver on a stage coach. As you can see it has grisly power at both short and longer ranges making it great for self-defense. Compact and maneuverable this particular model has two triggers, the first for the right barrel, the second for the
left. Each barrel has a separate choke so the shooter can determine which is best for their particular situation. It also breaks down quickly for discreet transport. Modern day
cowboys like to use it for matches. It will run you $200.00 used to around $500.00 new.
Want more than two shots? Consider the Benelli M-1 Super 90.
This is a shotgun specifically designed for combat and shooting matches. This model has been modified with a Nordic Component magazine that holds 9 rounds, but smaller magazines are available for hunting. This is a 12 gage wonder gun almost impossible to miss whether your shooting steel plates at 7 yds, flying clay pigeons at 20, buckshot at 35, slugs on steel at 100 yds, all without reloading. This model runs around $700.00 but the modifications add up quickly.
12 Gage Shotgun
