Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 469! Our featured interview tonight is with Jody Davis. Jody is a renowned pipe artisan, and the lead guitar player for the Grammy-nominated Christian rock band, The Newsboys. His pipes are extremely high quality with Danish style designs, and they are not easy to come by. We will talk about the process of creating a new pipe shape, which Jody has done. It is called the Amore, which is a variation of a heart shape.  At the top of the show, Brian will discuss his thoughts on when you should buy a pipe. It is in response to Country Squire Radio’s recent episode on the same topic. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Jody’s description of the creative process involved in producing the Amore pipe was absolutely fascinating. However, the sound was extremely annoying. It was as if Jody was busy building an ark for the coming rains as he popped into whatever crappy devise he was using. Great conversation, lousy sound.
    I loved the song from “Pops.” You can never go wrong with Mr. Armstrong.
    Your closing remarks were quite affecting, real and will probably help someone who needs a “perk-up.” Nicely done. Thanks.

  • As always a good show. The pipe parts segment was good discussion of the factors that go into selecting a pipe. Assuming the pipe is in the guy’s price range I’ve always felt his next criteria was does it fit his minds eye. If it doesn’t suit him he won’t buy it if angels were to promise him it was a great smoker. Then when you put it in your mouth how does it feel? If it feels good you’re one step closer to the sale. Most pipes you can’t take for a test drive before you buy so that pretty well sums it up.
    Jody Davis makes some fantastic pipes, well out of my price range, but I do like them a lot. Except for this thing he called “[I]Amore[/I]”. I hope this pipe set was a commission. On the discussion with Jody he was a little stiff in his comments. I felt this was do to with questions about how did he dream up the “[I]Amore[/I]” pipe. It’s hard to say where creative people get their vision from. Who knows maybe he has a muse. It’s what separates the journeyman pipe carver from the guy who is getting $1000+ and up for his pipes.
    It wasn’t one of Satchmo’s classics but it was a pleasure to listen to.
