Alaska Filmmakers!

Making a Difference in  Alaska!

The Alaska Filmmakers once again take over the studio!

Uncle Steve goes on the road and immediately these guys show up.

But we had a blast including a horrid rendition of

“Inappropriate Product Placement Theatuh”. And once again

they failed miserably on our Tall Alaska Tale. We don’t want to sound

bitter just because they’re younger, talented and everything we’re not.

Okay, maybe just a little bitter!

Check out the fun full podcast:

Nauseating Performance!

film industry.  But give them a script they’ve never seen and

turn on the mic … and here’s what you get!

Good Morning Mr. Whitekeys!
Whale Fat Follies Finals!

Mr. Whitekeys gets it.  Why else would he get up this early? Most musicians aren’t even through puking before noon! But Keys feels an obligation to let everyone know 2017 will be the last year for the Whale Fat Follies until 2019! He doesn’t want you to miss these historic final shows – more importantly, he doesn’t want to miss the revenues from these historic final shows! Go see it!

Good Parenting
Father Spams Own Son!

No, Keys is not Charlie Sears’ dad!  But he’s feeling sentimental seeing an old photo of Charlie next to his dad holding a can of spam. Sending pictures to Mr. Whitekeys from people from all over the world holding cans of spam is a BIG thing and an honor to see displayed at the Whale Fat Follies. Charlie’s cool because his dad is cool. Shot this pic with a young Charlie and then made him eat the spam!

fool, he knows we’d rather look at her than him!

Marcus appeared on our show on behalf of the Alaska Air Show Association and was a true Alaskan aviation legend in the making.

Here is an interview clip with Marcus from a show in 2012. Both Marcus and I were calling in. But you can still hear his

First man to solo the Denali summit in January

Lonnie Dupre is a 21st Century Explorer

 

We’ve referred to him as the “most interesting man in the world” back in 2012 when Lonnie joined us on the Big Alaska Show to share his near miss to reach Denali’s summit.

His easy going manner makes him seem more like your friendly next door neighbor than one that has faced nature’s potentially fatal full brunt.

Plus Lonnie’s a hoot!  Check out the podcast clips of our 2012 show with Lonnie.
