The former sidekick to popular morning radio personality Rick Dees filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that she was fired because the station perceived her as too family oriented and not young or sexy enough to suit Dees. Liz Fulton, who was let go from her job at KIIS-FM about six months ago, also contends in the suit that she was often the object of Dees' on-air sexual jokes while employed at the station. Dees frequently referred to her on the air as Liz (Rugburn) Fulton, she said.

OK, let me get this straight ("Rick Dees Sounds Off!," by Dennis McDougal, Feb. 3): Rick Dees has an unprecedented radio success, expensive toys, a happy family. He makes people laugh, even at themselves. He's riding high and making the best of it, and he hates getting ripped off. So for this I'm supposed to hate the guy? Just checking. P.S. Hey, Rick--Don't sweat it. SUSAN BLACK Los Angeles McDougal overlooked an interesting point that should be obvious to anyone who reads the radio trade papers.

IF NICE GUYS FINISH LAST, WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT RICK DEES? Two years ago he was just another L.A. morning deejay. But now KIIS' fun-loving boy wonder is the hottest disc jockey in Los Angeles--and the country. He's everywhere--hosting "Solid Gold" and two syndicated radio shows, doing commercials for Chrysler and Michelob. He's cut a pair of comedy albums and even has a movie development deal in the works at Paramount.

I realize you didn't want the cover story on Rick Dees to sound like a four-page ad, but I think your hatchet got a little too sharp at times ("All About Dees," by Dennis McDougal, Feb. 3). Does it really matter that a radio personality "cannot look you straight in the eye and talk to you"? Did you really have to identify Julie Dees as his second wife every time she was mentioned? Did we have to hear twice (from former colleague Liz Fulton, now doing radio in San Jose)

Rick Dees actually wrote a threatening memo ("All About Dees," by Dennis McDougal, Feb. 3)? I guess you folks had to find something solid to back up the bitter rantings of a couple of Dees' burned out ex-employees. His bad karma will probably catch up with him one of these days, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. His good karma is only beginning to pay off and will continue for years to come. Dees is an inspiration for all of us who wish to accomplish something in life, so cut it. OK?
