Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 519

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 519! Our featured interview tonight is with pipe maker Doug Finlay. Doug started making pipes as a hobby in 2017 since he enjoyed smoking a pipe so much. After only two years, in 2019 one of Doug’s pipes was one of seven winners in the 2019 North American Pipe Carvers Contest at the The Greater Kansas City Pipe & Tobacco Show. He is a full time pipe maker now.  In Pipe Parts, Brian will have a show report from last weekend’s North American Society of Pipe Collectors show. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Thanks for your in-depth review of the NASPC show!
    It was fun to “meet” Doug. He’s an engaging fellow with an interesting path to pipe-making. I wish him good luck and good fortune among our great American pipe carvers.
    While Jay has a powerful Blues/Rock vocal style, it didn’t work for me on this cover. The guitar work was very nice, but Mr. Buchanan’s vocal was, for me, way too over the top.
    Thank you for a nice “shout-out” to your listeners, in the rave, and for an always entertaining show.

  • Great review of the NASPC pipe show. Jeff and Eddie do a tremendous job on the show. The seem to draw a very large crowd every year. I don’t know why these people come but the show really pulls them in. It really helps that they have millions of people within a three hour drive of them.
    Great interview with Doug. I thought that this interview would be really tough because Doug is so introverted you’d end up talking to yourself. Doug did a nice job of telling us about the people that helped him. I know that he got a lot of constructive comments regarding shaping lines and how to make stems. George Dibos is an absolute master of the topics and he helped Doug quite bit.
    I had hoped you’d play a piece of Olivia singing but it was not to be.
