The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 300

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 on tonight’s show is with pipe maker Walt Hettinger. He started smoking a pipe in 1968, quit in 1995, and resumed in 2015. Walt was a pipe maker in Baltimore in the late 1960s and early 70s and worked out of Jay’s Smoke Shop. When he retired from Emergency Medicine in 2015, he started making pipes again. Most of his pipes are in the Danish freehand style. In the Pipe Parts intro segment, Brian will discuss how different pipes smoke differently. 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.

  • Great show. I met Walt in Chicago this year at the Friday smoking tent sale. I became enamored with a blasted freehand sitter he had and got it before it someone else did. Walt is a true artisan. Glad you had him on the show.

  • Been trying to figure out how to describe this show to other people, and in this episode you nailed the description perfectly: “It will be a lot of rambling and a little bit of gibberish, but maybe something good will come out of it.”

  • Good show as usual.
    The interview with Hettinger was very good considering he did like to ramble. Little surprised that guy who is older than me would be getting into the carving game but we all look for ways to keep busy.
    I never heard of a reservation system that didn’t guarantee the room you wanted at the time of reservation. I guess it shows that I don’t go out much.

  • Good show. I always enjoy hearing about things like how the medical field used to support smoking. The organ music was enjoyable. Pleasant smokes
