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! In our opening segment, Brian will answer a question from a listener regarding the use of bamboo on pipe shanks. Hint: It started out as more than an embellishment. Our featured interview is with Greek Pipe Maker Michail Kyriazanos. He was raised in the Aegean island of Paros and studied electrical engineering in Athens. Then he started to smoke pipes, and fell in love with them. He moved back to Paros years ago and is making excellent Danish-style shapes and perfect classic shapes as well.  Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

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! We will have a slightly different format on tonight’s show. We will start with “Ask the Pipe Maker” with Jeff Gracik. Then, we will have a short segment where Brian answers a question from a listener. Finally, we have “The Lost Tapes” from the former owners of the now closed McClelland Tobacco company, Mike & Mary McNiel. This is the third time we’re saying these are the final conversations, but we really mean it this time … we think. Most people know that McClelland was one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies for 40-years. Their story is well told in Tobacconist Magazine. The part that only pipe show attendees know is that Mary & Mike are a joy, and a pleasure to listen to, so our show listeners are in for a real treat. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!
