Faces of Alaska: Mr. Whitekeys

January 21, 2014 - 7:00 am

Alaskans know Mr. Whitekeys as a comedian, a musician and a Spam-loving night club impresario.

Whether you know him from his days behind the piano at the Fly By Night Club, his popular stage shows like “The Whale Fat Follies” or his regular commentary on local television, chances are you’ve never had the chance to get to know the man behind the loud Hawaiian shirt.

Alaska Public Media’s Ellen Lockyear recently sat down with “Keys” – as he likes to be called – at his studio in Anchorage to get a better sense of how he came to Alaska, and why he’s chosen to make this place his home, and his muse, for over 40 years.
