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".

Myths of the AR-15
-theAR in AR 15 stands for Assault rifle. It stands for Arma Light.
-Because it comes apart it is deadly. It comes apart because you can re-fit it with different barrels for different calibers, even a crossbow. So are you saying you want to bann cross bows too?
-it is the most powerful rifle on the planet. There are far more, even your standard deer rifle is more powerful.
-it was designed to kill. –it was designed using military technology in order to more effectively wound. Wounding the enemy is more expensive because the enemy now has to use resources to treat the wounded.
-the collapsible stock makes it more compact, concealable, and more deadly. The collapsible stock is designed to better fit different shooters, and only reduces the size by 4 inches.
-the round it fires is too powerful for hunting and is only meant for assault. Most standard AR-15s shoot a .223 round, not much bigger around than a 22, and most standard deer rifles are far larger and more powerful.
-the semi-automatic nature is designed only for close anti-personnel and is no good
for hunting at long ranges. The gun is effective at short AND long ranges. (see the video)
-because it is so versatile it is more deadly. Because it is so versatile it is more sought after.
The gun is perfect for home defense, competitive and non-competitive target
practice, and hunting.
