  • Always love your show. You do a great job.Great guests, advice (especially from someone so young) . Wish I could see you in Chicago, but alas no. Maybe in Nashville. Keep it between the lines and enjoy your existance. Jeb

  • An absolutely delightful show tonight! No overtones of “tsurris,” just great conversation, lovely music, informative and helpful insights, and, a “pig-butt.” What’s not to like?
    I am devastated that I’m going to miss my second Chicago Show in more than twenty years. And, from all the discussion at our CPCC meeting last Saturday, this one’s going to be a “Monster.” The biggest we’ve ever held.
    Pipe folk, don’t YOU miss this show. Be there, or be sad.
    Thanks for another terrific show.

  • I’m with you Brian. I am lefthanded and play my right handed guitar upside down and backwards.
    I would always ask to ‘try’ friends’ instruments, and they were invariably RH.
    I had an embarrassment for a guitar back many years ago that was missing a string and had a variable depth from string to fret because the neck was somewhat curved or the bridge was pulling up or maybe both.
    An acquaintance asked me, upon seeing it in the corner: “would you mind if I played your guitar?”..I said heck no, but good luck.
    He picked it up and messed with the tuning a bit and proceeded to make it sound amazing!
    Little did I know then, that Lenny Breau was a guitarist. R.I.P. my friend.

  • Great show as usual Brian,I’ve been listening for a few months now and I’m almost finished with the old episodes.This show has been very beneficial for me as a pipe smoker of less than a year.

  • Highlight of the episode? Pig Butt. Also, keeping a close eye on that “Nording Hunter Series, “Wild Boar” Pipe”
    Keep it up sir. The show, not the Pig Butt 🙂

  • Great show Brian, Chris sounds very interesting, although my knowledge of wine is limited to red and white and I know even less about guitars I really liked the music choice.
    Good luck with your tobacco blending seminar , Although I arrive in Chicago on Monday I don’t make it to St Charles until sometime on Thursday and Im gutted that I’m missing out but I cant rely on your public transport to get me there on time. I’ll look forward to catching you at some point of the weekend.
    Nice pig but I cant see it fitting in my sporran.

  • Fine show. Chris was a very entertaining guest. I know very little about guitar playing and wine making so I followed the conversation as best I could. He seemed a modest person who had things under control. Didn’t like the music selection.
    Not making it to Chicago this year. Don’t know if I ever will get back.

  • Thanks for reading my note in regards to show 187 and following up with Stephen Willett. His response is that of a consummate professional. Having Peretti on line is a blessing for those geographically disenfranchised.
