The Pipes Magazine Radio Show - Episode 96 | The #1 Source for Pipes and Pipe Tobacco Information

Kevin Godbee
Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our Featured Interview tonight is with pipe maker Scottie Piersel. A few weeks ago at the Kansas City Pipe Show, I inadvertently bought one of her pipes. There were about 40 pipes on a table that were entrants into the 7-day set contest that focused on the billiard shape. Of all of the pipes, I liked hers the best and bought it. I was pleasantly surprised to find out afterwards that the pipe was made by a woman. In our "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian will talk about the preeminent freehand pipe maker, the late Preben Holm. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by Sutliff-Tobacco.com, CupOJoes.com, SmokingPipes.com, Missouri Meerschaum, 4noggins.com, MeerschaumStore.com, Cornell & Diehl, and Savinelli Pipes and Tobaccos. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

    Hi Brian,
    It’s Tuesday and I remembered to tune in to the podcast.
    Great story on the history of Preben Holm.
    Scottie Piersel is a carver of which I have 0 knowledge. I enjoyed her story of her path into pipe making. I wish I had her skills but when it comes to making a pipe, I am all thumbs. I agree with the magic in McCrannies Red Ribbon - it’s great. Nice interview, interesting pipe carver.

    Chet Adkins & Les Paul - two guitar greats.

    Rant - NOt showing smoking on TV and movies is negating reality. Pure B.S.

    Nice Show.

    An absolutely delightful conversation. Scottie is amazing, and her work in classic shapes is outstanding.
    Love “Chester and Lester,” one of my favorite albums. I went to grammar school with Les’ son Gene, who is a celebrated recording/mastering engineer. Of the hundreds of albums he’s worked on, dozens have been nominated and 9 albums have won Grammys.
    I thoroughly enjoyed your rather wry rant.
    ‘Til Tuesday, Dino

    Scottie Piersel was great and down to earth. I was glad to hear that she prefers the classic shapes. Also the Chet Adkins & Les Paul version of moon glow was great.

    Scottie is just an enjoyable person. She really brightens up any room she is in. I think most carvers would be astonished at the quality of her work if they could see how modest her equipment and work space is. She didn’t mention it in the interview but she has received a lot of guidance on stems from George Dibos of Precision Pipe Repair. I was able to purchase one of her pipes at the recent KC Pipe show.

    It is kind of hard to beat Chester & Lester picking on their guitars.

    Really like the history of Preben Holm. I can remember buying a Ben Wade free hand circa 1974 and I just loved that pipe. I kept that thing for almost 40 years when I decided to give it to a fellow member of the KC Club who adored Ben Wade pipes.

    As to the rant, I was watching “Masterpiece Mystery’s” latest episode of “Endeavour” and it had all kinds of warnings. Of course, the show is set in the mid-sixties and the characters are just smoking up a storm. One of the principal characters is a pretty serious pipe smoker.

    Great interview with Scottie! She certainly has the skill and drive, she will go far.
    I enjoyed Chet and Les so much I am listening to it again. Perfect mood music.
