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".

The Blaze reports http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/25/highly-anticipated-report-on-newtown-school-shooting-released/ the Sandy Hook report has been released and it shows very little we did not know. (Sound Effects: Crickets Chirping)
What it does confirm is my conclusion rigth after it took place a year ago. We need to taker a serious look at how we treat the mentally ill in this country, not how we limit guns in this country. The report indicates:
-Yes Adam Lanza was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in 2005 but he had other mental problems for which he refused his medication and prescribed therapy.
-his only communication with his mother was through e-mail, even though they lived only a few feet apart.
-he spent the last three months in his room, with blacked out windows playing video games and reading copious information on mass murders and school shootings.
-mental health professionals could do nothing more for him because he posed no danger to himself nor anyone else; and showed no violent tendencies.
-Even though he wouldn't allow her to put up a Christmas tree or celebrate otherwise, his mother planned to give him a hand gun for Christmas!
With apologies to the mother, it sounds painfully like she was in impenatrable denial. It also sounds like the US needs mental healthcare control, not gun control.

I watched an intensely interesting documentary on PBS last night. It was a strictly ballistic look into the JFK shooting; by experts in the field.
What they found:
-the 6.5mm Carcano round was so blunt, it was entirely possible for it to slam through something as hard as 46 inches of pine without being mangled.
-when it emerged from ballistic gell, it yalled up and sideways, completely consistent with the wounds made in Texas governor John Conley. So it is completely possible one bullet went through Kennedy’s kneck, then Connley’s back and wrist, finally partially embedding in his thigh, where it was found later on his stretcher.
-it was entirely possible for Oswald to get off three shots in 8 seconds. One miss, one through Kennedy’s kneck,\Conley’s back, and Kennedy’s head.
-the wounds to Kennedy’s brain was only on the right side, and at an angle completely consistent with an entry wound to the back of this head, and an exit wound to his front right forehead. The fractures to the skull were in a pattern and direction consistent with a rear entry wound not a front wound.
-Kennedy was killed by one shot, from the back, fired in the direction from the Texas book depository, and there was no so called magic bullet.
