  • Brian Excellent interview. Very informative on the new Government interference in our lives… Pipe mixture….manufacturing rules etc. ITS TIME to circle the wagons and get busy writing letters. If one who is knowledgeable about this interference in our lives would get together with someone who has a list of ALL THE PIPER CLUBS …..we could petition the Assholes in Washington as one big unit. There is power in numbers.
    I’m so sick of these people wanting to get involved in every facet of our lives…’s time we go after them or someday the only place you’ll see a pipe, a cigar, a tobacco plant……will be in a museum. I’m old, I’m sick, and I’m pissed. I’m a disabled vet who fought for freedom?? Looks like freedom is only you “own the power”. And we own the power….just has to be presented properly.
    Anyway….going to have a wee droch n doris of Patron Silver…..,,and calm down.
    BTW. The music was so good that before the music finished….I had completed an order on Amazon for the album.

  • Good show. The pipe stem section was really good.
    The interview was very crisp and clear in its content. Jeff was a little more optimistic about some judge somewhere seeing the truth and striking down these vicious FDA regulations. Personally I think it will be a cold day in hell but he’s in a better position to judge than I am.
    The rant at the end was quite good.
    I think with John Seiler’s departure I am now your longest standing contributor.

  • Brian,
    Good show. I cant comment much on your situation with the FDA other than to hope it works out as well as possible but Jeff was a very interesting person and I enjoyed listening to him. The music selection was good, nice and relaxing listening for my nightshift.
    I only have one complaint, please don’t tap your mic like you did during your rant. I had my headphones in and your nearly deafened me!

  • Whoa, Dan. I may sit a lot more nowadays, but, like you and John and a few others, I, too, have been “contributing” since Episode 1.
    Brian, your conversation with Mr. Steinbock, had just the right amount of information, caution, and suggestions for action, that our community needs with respect to this onerous situation.
    I really enjoyed Thile and Meyer. Chris is not only a master of the mandolin, but he’s the new host of “The Prairie Home Companion.”
    The rant was perfectly on point.
