Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 497

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 497! Our featured interview tonight is with The Reverend Dr. Malcolm Guite. Malcolm is an English poet, singer-songwriter, Anglican priest, and academic. Born in Nigeria to British expatriate parents, Guite earned degrees from Cambridge and Durham universities. His research interests include the intersection of religion and the arts, and the examination of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis. He definitely fits in around here, and as you can imagine, he definitely smokes a pipe. At the top of the show, in “Pipe Parts”, Brian will review Steve Davenport’s pipe collection, which includes Lord Davenport pipes amongst others. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • The Reverend Doctor was ebullient, erudite and immensely entertaining! The range of the conversation tonight was absolutely astounding. Bravo! I also thoroughly enjoyed Malcolm’s lovely tune (had a bit of a Grateful Dead vibe).
    Great show, Thanks.

  • This was really a great show!! The pipe parts segment on Steve Davenport’s collection of Lord Davenport pipes was really good. This guy really had a plan on what he was going to collect and clearly stuck to his plan. I had never heard of Lord Davenport pipes but was greatly intrigued by them.
    Malcolm Guite was quite the guest of yours. I didn’t realize you traveled in such rarified academic circles. Someone must have given you a heads up on this guy because I can’t imagine you finding him on your own. I have been listening to him for years on YouTube and he is just amazing to listen to. He has a simple 10 to 15 minute podcast on poetry or writing that is simply wonderful to listen in on. He briefly explains the piece he is going to be doing then reads it to you. He has such a wonderful voice for reading old poetry. And yes, he does smoke his pipe during most of the podcasts.
    And, in a shocking development, I greatly enjoyed the music.
