Scott’s son, Chris is also a musician, and his band, Nickel Creek will be our featured music with their Platinum record, “In The House Of Tom Bombadil”. At the top of the show, Brian will be answering a listener question related to other collectibles in the pipe and tobacco world.

  • Your enumeration of collectable pipe ephemera was very useful for both new and seasoned members of our pipe community.
    Nice to catch up with Scott. Congrats on the Platinum Record. I bought the LP when it first came out eleven years ago, and I also have the CD. A truly great album. “Tom Bombadil” is a favorite.
    This was a terrific conversation, informative and entertaining. And, thanks Scott for Pipedia, I use it often.
    Brian, some very insightful comments about artisan pipes.
    Dude, you got my vote. “Smoking My Pipe” could be your campaign song.
    Thanks for a truly entertaining show.

  • I expect that the run through of different collectibles in pipes was much appreciated by pipe aficionados. I can’t remember if you remembered lighters or not.
    It was great to listen to you catch up with Scott Thile after many a year. Scott is just a prince of a fellow. I had the pleasure of listening to him play at the Chicago Show one year. Him and group of fellows were playing straight Blue Grass and it was just sensational. Wow, a platinum record is nothing but a real feather in his hat. Congratulations on getting this award!
    Pipedia is something I use almost daily in answering questions on the forum. I didn’t care for “Tom Bombadil” that much, but it is always a pleasure to listen to Chris play the mandolin.
    I think your idea of running for Congress makes a lot of sense to me. It has burned me for years that Congress exempts themselves from laws that effect their constituents.
