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".

Last week I reviewed some powders used for reloading. I fired my .45 ACP loaded
with Hodgdon’s Tight Group, Hodgdon’s Longshot, and Alliant Blue Dot. I gave the Blue Dot an unfavorable review because it 1-required more of a charge than the others; and 2-didn’t produce as much muzzle velocity. I got a lot of hate mail saying it wasn’t fair to judge Blue Dot based on .45 ACP since it is designed for smaller rounds. OK. This week I repeated the experiment with 9mm.
It was harder to determine the better powder as each was more closely matched with the smaller round. According to the reloading data, Tight Group’s safe charge was 4.0 grains to yield a muzzle velocity of 1,130 feet per second. A Longshot charge was 5.5 grains for a velocity of 1,135 feet per second. Alliant Blue Dot was 8.5 grains, for a velocity of 1,250 feet per second. In the end I felt more comfortable with the Tight Group loads; whether that is because it is the powder I use most often and am used to it; or the recovery shots of the other powders was keeping my group more spread out is a fair argument. As our chronograph was still out of action I wasn’t able to determine if the velocities were less,
more or just about right.
Based strictly upon economics, the Tight Group is a better buy. Less powder per charge for a decent punch in muzzle velocity means you will be able to load more rounds with less cost.
I have seen this guy before. He likes to make his own sling shots and some of them are really cool. He made a sling shot gatling gun once. Things didn't turn out so good this time. Warning: do not watch if you faint at the sight of blood!
Eureka Springs, Arkansas. There is a classic Victorian hotel called the Cresent. Lovely wife and I have been there a couple of times but on this occasion we were booked into a third floor room. That night about 2 Am I was awakened by what sounded like a medium sized child stomping up and down the hard wood floor hall as hard as they could. It only lasted a couple of seconds, as though the child stomped once up, then down the hall. "Who is letting their child make that much noise this time of night?" I thought as I went back to sleep.
The next morning as we checked out the clerk asked how our stay was.
"Fine", I replied, "except for the child stomping up and down the hall last night. It woke me up about 2".
"Oh no. That was our ghost", he said as if he had heard the complaint many times before.
"You're kidding!", I said unbelieving.
"Oh no. Some say it is the spirit of someone that died there, some say it is a long forgotten chamber made continuing her rounds, but it is always on the third floor and always around 2 Am. It walks up then down the hall. We've evn tried to put down area rugs but the sound is the same".
That has been my only known experience with a ghost. What is yours? Post below or join me on the air 840-1000. Happy Hallloween!
