Lee Rodgers, Rest in Peace
KSFO Hot Talk 560, by Melanie Morgan

Original Article

Posted By:dman, 2/1/2013 1:12:09 PM

I really don´t want to write about this, I don´t want to think about this, and I don´t want it to be true. Lee Rodgers, friend and mentor, is dead. (snip) Lee and I worked together at KSFO radio on the "Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan Show, with Officer Vic" (and Sheri Yee) for 14 years, but it was always the Lee Rodgers show, and we got to go along for the ride. Lee was demanding, brilliant, perfectionistic, generous, very very loyal and HUGELY entertaining. I learned my conservative principles from him. He helped mold and shape my politics and

Comments:
I hope staff lets me post this. Those of us who were his fans have lost a tremendous conservative voice.

R.I.P., "Uncle Lee".

Melanie is back at KSFO in Lee´s morning slot with Brian Sussman. Lee did the best radio interviews bar none. What a tragic loss. I wish Susan all the help she needs to live with her loss.

Fantastic radio personality. Yes a solid Conservative voice but also one with a great sense of humor. He made the mundane entertaining. I was HUGELY disappointed when KSFO let him go a couple of years back, after listening to him daily for 6 years in SF, and 10 years over the internet from multiple locations around the world. The man has been missed by many for a while now. RIP.

Condolences to Lee´s and the KSFO family. He had the greatest radio voice and the rapport among Melanie, Officer Vic and Lee made my mornings. When I moved to CA from Atlanta in 1999 and had to leave Neal Boortz behind, I didn´t think I´d find anyone to replace him then discovered KSFO. Back to Atlanta 5 years ago, Neal was still here but I´ve lost him again, this time to retirement.
Glad Melanie is back with Brian. Used to enjoy him in the evenings.

for many of the 30+ years we lived in the Bay Area, Lee was one of the few people who helped me maintain my sanity and kept me out of jail. If it were not for him, I would have likely throttled and strangled most of the liberals who surrounded me. His morning program was my little oasis of conservative thought.

RIP Lee. You will be missed. You were a pro...

It was tough being one of the few conservatives in the Bay Area for the 20 years I lived there until realizing the best thing for my sanity was to just get the hell out before they taxed and regulated me into a little nub.
Lee, Melanie and Officer Vic were great therapy, letting us know we weren´t alone and completely voiceless.
RIP, Lee.

OMG! I am floored! I can´t believe he is gone. Now I am crying. I loved Lee Rodgers and his show. Lee and Melanie kept me ready to go every morning for several years. In fact, Melanie first talked about Lucianne.com on their morning show and that is how I came here some 13 years ago. I am glad to hear that Melanie is back with Brian in the morning.

God bless the Rodgers family. My thoughts and prayers are with them. Rest in peace, Uncle Lee. We will miss you something terrible.

I started listening to the Lee Rodgers-Melanie Morgan show back in, approximately, 1995. My radio alarm was set for 50 AM and listening to the show got me in a frame of mind that permitted me to leave for work in a edified condition. Melanie mentioned her teaming up with Lee at KGO; Lee, on the other hand, would have referred to it as that “call-letter-deficient” station, a phrase that still makes me chuckle. Another source of humor arose from Lee’s laborious search of world newspapers until he would come up with a story of some truly weird happening in another country. Lee, his co-hosts (including Officer Vic) and the stellar cast of guests he interviewed really enriched my life. He is irreplaceable.

Wow, this one hurt.
Lee was my AM drive-to-work radio companion for many years before I left Cali for the equally nutty Seattle area. Working in SF with Melanie and ´OV´, Lee was a force of nature. He took no prisoners, especially RINO´s like Colin Powell. He seemed to relish working and living in "the Special City" or the "world´s largest outdoor insane asylum" as he called it.
I had occasional email correspondence with him over the years. Great sense of humor and a political visionary to boot.
RIP Lee, and that´s Rodgers with a "D´.

I, too, lived in the Bay Area and Lee Rodgers, et.al., got me going in the morning and put me in a good frame of mind to face my middle schoolers! I loved that program and couldn´t start the day without them. Went through Melanie´s and Officer Vic´s antics and discussions. Glad Brian Sussman is still there. Many times, I wrote to Lee especially his blogs here on lucianne.com. He always responded with politeness and humbleness. I am so sorry he has left us, but he left his footprint with conservative radio talk shows!

National Harbor, Maryland -- On Thursday, conservatives were offered a rare treat while attending the CPAC conference at the Gaylord Resort, settled above the Potomac River in National Harbor, Maryland. Mark Levin, a New York Times bestselling author, firebrand conservative radio talk show host, and extraordinary legal scholar, was honored with the inaugural Citizens United Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award. The afternoon event combined a tribute to Levin with a thoughtful remembrance of the late Andrew Breitbart, who died two years ago this month.

Out of the Republican retreat on Maryland’s Eastern shore comes word that the House leadership is raising the white flag of surrender on immigration. The GOP will agree to halt the deportation of 12 million illegal aliens and sign on to a blanket amnesty. It only asks that the 12 million not be put on a path to citizenship. Sorry, but losers do not dictate terms. Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO says amnesty is no longer enough.

Highly sensitive U.S. military equipment stored in Libya was stolen over the summer by groups likely aligned and working with terrorist organizations, State Department sources told Fox News -- in raids that contributed to the decision to pull Special Forces personnel from the country. The stolen equipment had been used by U.S. Special Forces stationed in the country. Lost in the raids in late July and early August were dozens of M4 rifles, night-vision technology and lasers used as aiming devices that are mounted on guns and can only be seen with night-vision equipment.

Sen.

Through his efforts, McCain was able to secure a complete GOP capitulation on 7 pending nominations. Reid secured all the benefits of exercising the "nuclear option" without the political cost of actually using it. Under the McCain deal, the GOP will provide enough votes to secure the 60 votes needed for cloture and proceed to final consideration of the 7 nominees. In exchange, Reid agreed

On the afternoon of July 1, 1863 – the first day of fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg – a Northern soldier propped his rifle against a tree and took careful aim at a tall, bearded Southern officer who was leading his troops forward through the woods. The Northern soldier was Sergeant Charles H. McConnell of the 24th Michigan Infantry, whose regiment and the Iron Brigade to which it belonged had been forced to retreat from McPherson’s Ridge on the west side of Gettysburg. As the blue-uniformed troops around him fell back, McConnell paused to fire his last round

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
