Kevin Godbee
Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our Featured Interview tonight is with pipe maker Ron Powell. Ron makes the RD Pipe line. Ron started smoking pipes in the 1980s, then he started restoring estate pipes, which lead to making his own. His pipes are gorgeous high quality pieces priced in the $190 – $250 range which is great pricing for the quality. Brian will do a review by request of Cornell & Diehl Habana Day Dreamin’. It has cigar leaf, latakia (Brian hates latakia), and perique. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by SmokingPipes.com, Cornell & Diehl, and Savinelli Pipes and Tobaccos. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

Another enjoyable show. I really like cigars but for some reason I don't care for pipe tobacco with cigar leaf in it. Don't know why just don't.
Couldn't get into the interview. I guess you have to know the guy.
I really liked the performance of Burl Ives doing "Ghost Riders in the Sky". It has the same motif to it as "The Master's Call".

I loved the whole thing!
Once I accepted the premise of the pretentious, self aggrandizing fart, (I kid, Brian, I kid)
I found Ron's story to be extremely engaging, and his demeanor conducive to the enjoyment of a bowl while I listened.
I would love to be able to stop by and visit the guy after listening to this.
As for Ghost Riders by Burl Ives, I think that's an eye opening rendition that provides me with an entirely more authentic treatment of the lyric and melody than Monroe's popular version. (the one I grew up with) Burl evokes the ghosts! Fantastic!
Puff ON!
