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".

A couple of years ago I got to meet one of my Food Network idols Alton Brown
He is the host of "Good Eats", and "Iron Chef America". I asked him when he was going to do another "Feasting on . . . " specials where he travels part of the country studying the food anthropology of certain areas. "Where did chili come from?", for instance. He replied, "When Guy Fieri is dead and buried!" With incidents like what happened below, that may not be too far off! (Caution! Adult Language)
Evidently Guy Fieri's hair dresser was pretty upset with him about something? Did Guy not leave a tip? Did Guy refuse to cater the hair dressers wedding? Did the cookies Guy brought suck? The world may never know. Watch out Guy, there are angry hair dressers everywhere!
Evidently the new trend is to take a selfie of yourslef at a funeral and post it.
Wow! It never occurred to me to take a picture of myself and post it with a self centered caption while mourning a loved one! Guess it's official. I'm and old foagie. Someone change my bag!
In an open letter to the Preisdent, this guy claims to be a medical professional who is leaving the business because of the Affordable Care Act.
In his letter he claims to be an anesthesiologist technician, working to "cover the cost of tuition". He writes of how the act is causing many doctors to retire early or go into a cash only practice. He says he is leaving the profession because the United States is a nation of laws and the President is not a man of principles.
He is correct. Many doctors are leaving the industry early because of the ACA, but it is not because they losing money; it is because they do not want the government looking over their shoulders dictating how they treat patients.
He was working to "cover the cost of tuition" as an anesthesiologist technician. That is a pretty specialized field that pays pretty well. Work is almost guaranteed, and probably will be for a while with or without the ACA. How will quitting the profession continue to help him "cover the cost of tuition"?
The United States is a nation of laws; some good some bad. Unfortunately the ACA is one of them. What is the best way to get rid of a bad law? Work to repeal it. That cannot be done, however, with the current Congress or Preisdent.
The President is not a man of principles? From what I see he is a man of firm principles rooted in the premise the free market is uncaring, unfair and harmful to the survival of the human race. It must be "fundamentally transformed" by government. He's never been unclear about this.
If this guy truly is leaving the medical profession I'm having a problem believing it is solely because of the Affordable Care Act? I hate the ACA and what it is doing to the country. I believe in less government and a greater freer market. Work to change the situation; not have a sanctimonious temper tantrum.
Katy Perry has shown her share of skin. Even she is saying things are getting out of hand.
At the risk of sounding sexist; Katy Perry has the body of a stripper. Miley Cyrus has the body of a 12 year old boy. Men, (and yes even some women), don't mind seeing Katy Perry show a little skin. Seeing Miley Cyrus do it is disturbing. Katy Perry does not have to take off her clothes to get you to notice her music. Miley Cyrus does. You can hear plenty of both on our sister station www.kjyo.com

Reese's made the top of the list and it is no wonder. Who can argue with the old "your chocolate is in my peanut butter-your peanut butter is in my chocolate" argument?
Before the Peanut Buttter cup was invented, I had an Aunt who made a version of her own. Aunt "B" would fold powdered sugar into a jar of peanut butter until you can roll it into balls about the size of golf ball. Place on wax or parchment paper and cover with melted chocolate. (melted chocolate chips works best). Allow to stiffen and voila! Peanut Butter bon-bons. Almost, almost, better than Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Over the weekend Mariel Hemmingway was featured on CBS Sunday morning.
It was a good piece. I am glad she hasn't been plagued with the same mental illness her Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Uncles, and Sisters have been.
I forgot she played Woody Allen's love interest in the 1979 movie "Manhattan". She was 16 at the time playing a 17 year old.
She was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance. I also like many of Woody Allen's movies. That said, I was reminded how creepy a self fulfilling prophecy this movie was for Woody Allen. A neurotic intelectual from New York falls for and sleeps with a minor and somehow it is cool. In most other situations it would be a felony. Woody Allen later falls for and marries his step daughter and somehow it is cool. In most other situations it would be called incest.
Ah such is the world of New York intellectuals and high art.
