  • Jeff’s comments were totally on point. I agree that immersing or flushing a finished pipe with water, alcohol or other liquids is going to be somewhat detrimental.
    My “landsman” Yiannos Kokkinos (which, by the way, translates to Johnny Red) was a wonderful guest. His insights into the international pipe scene were very informative. I enjoyed his journey to pipe making. And, his classic and innovative design pipes are quite stunning. Yiassou Yianni!
    I loved “I Yust Go Nuts At Christmas.” Yogi Yorgesson’s tune was a Christmas staple to folk my age, along with other 40s and 50s novelty songs like “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth,” “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” and “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas.”
    A fun show, thanks.

  • It was good episode. Interesting replies by Jeff in the Ask the Pipemaker question. His reply was much the same vein as “Don’t try this at home, kids! I think it would have been much better to ask George Dibos that question.
    I enjoyed your interview with Yiannos. His training for becoming a pipemaker was interesting. His pipes are highly imaginative. His remarks on the international pipe scene were very informative.
    I didn’t like the musical selection. I thought a much better choice would have been “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”.
