The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 277

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 Ric Farrah of Briarville Pipe Repair. Ric transitioned into his pipe repair business by taking his full time truck driving job to part time, and then finally quit the regular job grind to follow his passion. He has some great pipe repair stories. (Apparently some weird things happen to pipes.) For the show intro, Brian will do a review and comparison of factory fresh versus 3-year old Sutliff 507C Virginia Slices. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

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

We hope you enjoy our 1-hour show produced just for you—the pipe smoker and collector. The following link will launch a pop-up player. Alternatively, you can download the show in iTunes and other podcast sites and apps after the initial broadcast is complete here.

  • Great show. Ric was a pleasure to listen to and seemed like a real down to earth guy with a great sense of humor. I got to meet you at the KC Pipe show this year Brian and it was a real pleasure. I hope to be able to see you at future KC shows as well!

  • It was interesting that Rick mentioned the use of denatured alcohol versus isopropyl. Denatured alcohol is typically seen as inedible and I’m not sure I’d want that in my pipe, I’ll stick with isopropyl

  • Another wonderful show. It is nice to know that some people dedicate themselves to restoration and don’t want to make pipes. It really can be two completely different skill sets, and it is nice to have people who can fix those crazy issues. Ric seems very knowledgeable. I agree with the use of DNA. Denatured alcohol is inedible to keep it inexpensive, but is still chemically ethanol. Isopropyl is not ethanol, but a secondary alcohol which smells bad and is also not safe to drink. But in the end, they will both clean your pipes.
