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

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.

Oh No! I´ve been working late and have not checked my radiorodgers.com site. I´m so disappointed and upset. He was one of my favorite bloggers. He had such a way of nailing the issues, and he would e-mail you back when you sent messages.

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.

A lot of people don´t know that it was Lee Rodgers who got Mark Levin hooked on talk radio. Mark was a regular caller in to the Lee Rodgers show and moved on to become Rush´s legal analyst, F. Lee Levin.

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...

Oh my goodness...so sad to read this about Mr. Lee Rogers...I cut my conservative teeth on his broadcasts for years while living in CA. What a jewel he was ... he´s probably kicking up lots of commotion in his new realm - and loving every bit of it. A genuinely bright, caring and wonderful guy, RIP, Sir.

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.

Our hearts go out to Lee´s family and to Melanie who loved him so. He was so kind and helpful to us here when we first started and throughout our years. We did his radio show many times and thrilled to his smart clever take on life. We shan´t see his like again.

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!

Sorry to post twice on the same thread, but it was Lee and Melanie´s constant referencing of this site, and their interviews with our beloved Ms. Lucianne that got me to join this site in about 2000, and I´ve never left.

Andrew Breitbart Remembered at CPAC

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. Illegal aliens must be put on a path to citizenship and given green cards to work – and join unions.

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. Rand Paul (R-KY) exclusively told Breitbart News on Monday that he believes the plan from Russian to secure Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad’s chemical weapons—a plan Assad reportedly has agreed to—would be “a great step forward” if it actually happened. “I think it would be a great step forward if Assad were willing to do it and if Russia were willing to monitor it or an international authority with Russia,” Paul, an outspoken opponent of U.S. military strikes in Syria, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News on Monday. “I think part of diplomacy and getting things

In a surprise move, Russia promised Monday to push its ally Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control and then dismantle them quickly to avert U.S. strikes. (snip) "If the establishment of international control over chemical weapons in that country would allow avoiding strikes, we will immediately start working with Damascus," Lavrov said. "We are calling on the Syrian leadership to not only agree on placing chemical weapons storage sites under international control, but also on its subsequent destruction and fully joining the treaty on prohibition of chemical weapons," he said.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
