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! Tonight’s show will start our Summer Series featuring Storytime with Alan Schwartz. Alan has been smoking pipes, and in the business his entire life. He has been an importer / distributor of pipes and tobaccos, and the publisher of PipeSMOKE Magazine. Brian has talked to Alan for hours. In this episode we will have excerpts of stories from the 1950s & 60s. Our introductory discussion will be about pipe wind caps, bowl screens and other similar accessories. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • An amazing conversation with an amazing individual. Shows how pipes and tobacco can bridge generations like nothing else.
    I look forward to as much time recorded with Alan as you’ve got, Brian. Take it easy this summer, if you can.
    Your loyal 6 chord guitar playing listener,
    I’ve got a story about a great jazz guitarist, Lenny Breau. R.I.P.

  • This was a very enjoyable show. I also was born in New York (Brooklyn actually) but moved when I was two so I don’t remember any of it. I’ve enjoyed the numerous shows I have seen of NY with the stoops and the kids playing ball in the streets. Outside of an academic setting calling a PhD “doctor” is very pretentious. Great interview and I look forward to more.
    I am sure that someone, sometime, some place enjoyed the music.

  • Alan Schwartz is a terrific raconteur, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of your conversations. Nice way to bait us for all the summer shows. You are a master….
    Dan, I, too, was born in New York (Astoria, actually) but was moved to Chicago when I was one. Yet, we in Chicago, in the 1950s, had most of the same urban games and street life that New Yorkers, like Alan, enjoyed.
    Another fine show, Brian. Thanks.
