The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 298

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 Bob Savage of the Old Dominion Pipe Company. They are one of only two U.S. companies that make corn cob pipes. Bob and his brother Bill own the farm, grow and harvest the corn, and make the pipes themselves. (The unused corn is sold off to become cornmeal.) They are also making replicas of historic clay pipes. In our opening segment, Brian will give a rundown on the latest ruling in the industry’s lawsuit against the FDA. 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.

  • Your opening didn’t give us much to hope for. It’s nice that the B&M’s can blend things as before but by okaying the FDA regs it gives them carte blanche to destroy us whenever they want. Cigarettes are killing people in droves but innocent pipe smokers are suffering.
    I enjoyed the interview with Bob Savage very much. I did wonder how much of his family history has been verified as opposed to stories that have just been handed down.
    Terrific music selection.

  • All the FDA stuff has me jaded by what the world is fast becoming. It’s sad to see, and a blight on modern society that regulators want to control every facet of our lives, and put forward policies without having consulted the very people who will be affected. This isn’t even an issue about who one supports politically…. this is about motivated and empowered regulators looking to achieve KPIs.

  • There seemed to be a bit of an echo on Bob’s end which was kind of distracting but a good interview otherwise. I appreciate how they try and preserve the history of the pipes they make. I actually enjoyed the music this week! Pleasant smokes

  • What a great history lesson and discussion. Bob’s family stories were quite entertaining.
    True story, the only thing I bought at the Chicago Show, this year, was a Williamsburg clay pipe from Bob, at the Old Dominion table.
    I love a good claw-hammer banjo tune, and Willie Watson was wonderful.
    Thanks for another fun show.
