Steak & Pipes c.1981
The Steak & Pipes instrument came from Uncle's Pizza in Anchorage.
In THEATRE ORGAN Journal Jun Jul 1981, it was stated that restaurant management planned to "go back to a completely restored two-manual Kimball console, and [add] several Skinner ranks." It is not known if these changes were ever completed.
The June-July issue of THEATRE ORGAN lists Glenn Cooper and James "Jim" Eales as organists at Steak & Pipes.
Interestingly, there was also an establishment named Uncle's Pizza in Fairbanks. Since Uncle's Pizza in Anchorage was the source of the organ used at Steak & Pipes, it's possible the Fairbanks establishment initially operated under the name Uncle's Pizza and was later renamed Steak & Pipes, but this has not been verified.
