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! On tonight’s show Brian will be interviewing renowned tobacco blender and PipesMagazine.com contributing writer, Russ Ouellette. In our "Pipe Parts" educational segment we will explore the always controversial topic of pipe bowl coatings. Some hate them, some demand them, and others are indifferent. Brian will give his expert opinion. Our pipes are packed, drinks are poured, the sound check is done … pack a pipe, sit back, relax and join us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show.
