Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 397

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 397! Our featured interview tonight is with Dr. Fred Berger. Fred is a huge collector, and pipe smoker, and a regular attendee of many of the annual pipe shows. He received his first pipe, which he still has, for his 16th birthday in 1963, and that’s what started it all. He has a degree in medicine, and a psychiatric practice in La Jolla, CA.  In Pipe Parts, Brian will discuss two luxury brands of pipes that are no longer made, and offer a great value on the estate market since there’s not a big collectors demand for them. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Very enjoyable show. I never knew that S.T. Dupont and Davidoff made pipes. I can’t imagine they could make enough to satisfy the profits their investors demand. My wife would love to smoke Davidoff cigarettes again but you just can’t get them reliably since they quit servicing the U.S. The S.T. Dupont company makes great lighters but are very pricey.
    Enjoyed the interview. Fred seemed very humble and a real nice person. I think he was afraid to tell us actually how many pipes he has but I suspect it is well over 500.
    Popeye the Sailor was something of a treat for those of us who are long in the tooth.

  • Informative pipe parts and nice, casual conversation with Dr. Berger. Really enjoyable episode. The full theme song was a real treat. Keep up the good work.
