My newest interview subject, Aki Aleong, was introduced to me by Joe Williamson, who previously set up my interviews with Mel Novak, Laurene Landon and Donald F. Glut. Aki Aleong has worked alongside all three of them in this decade, but his career goes back to the 1950s, whether performing onstage in Teahouse Of The August Moon or on the big screen in No Down Payment, an interesting movie that deconstructed the white picket fence image of the 1950s IN the 1950s. Throughout the decades, Aki Aleong has not only been an actor, but a singer, a record label executive, a director, a writer and an activist. As he’s getting ready to wind things down, he agreed to an interview with me, and we spoke on Monday, December 10th. I hope you all enjoy getting to know him.
