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 Thursday 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 Al Franklin. He’s a pipe collector with a colorful and interesting past, which includes motorcycle racing, the CIA, Daniel Ortega, and The Sandinista revolution. He certainly isn’t the average pipe collector, and he definitely isn’t the average person. In the "Pipe Parts" segment Brian will discuss famous pipe smokers. We are extending the JDRF auction one more week for Brian’s daughter, Samantha. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!
