Richard Lee was our guest speaker last week. He has been in radio broadcasting for 50 years, starting out in Bishop California, working for Buck Owens Productions where Buck had a recording studio and radio station. 
Richard then moved on to Bakersfield Ca.,  Cheyenne Wyoming, and then Milwaukee Wisconsin. He eventually worked in a national format, where music and programs were broadcast around the country, including some locally in Kerrville. Richard had the opportunity to interview many country music stars, and did research on them before the interviews to be prepared with good questions. Some of the performers he interviewed include Merle Haggard, Kenny Rogers and Reba McEntire, Charlie Pride, Mel Tillis, George and Tammy Wynette, Garth Brooks, Hank Williams Jr. and the Judds.
He was working in Dallas when he eventually retired from the network in 2010. Richard then had the opportunity to come to Kerrville and work at 92.3, The Ranch Radio, as a morning show host.
