The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 354

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 Dirk Heinemann. Dirk is a young pipe maker from Germany. He has done woodworking his entire adult life, designing furniture, and now pipes. He makes mostly freehand, Danish shapes such as  horn, tomatoes, and blowfish, but will occasionally make standard shapes as well. In Pipe Parts, Brian will revisit the topic of pipe cleaners. There might be more to this simple accessory than you think. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by, Cornell & Diehl, Missouri Meerschaum, 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.

  • Good show. Nice piece on pipe cleaners though I can’t see what the fuss is about. find what you like and use it.
    Good interview with a personable young man. It’s funny thing about German beer; I spent two years in Germany and never ordered a beer by name. Whatever was on tap was fine by me and I never had one I didn’t like. God they were great! Back in the states I have tried many a German brew and they’re all terrible. Of course, I’m not exactly known as a beer connoisseur.

  • Thank you for the discussion of pipe cleaners. One more use for the tapered pipe cleaner- it is perfect for cleaning the stem of a Peterson p-Lip. Most pipe cleaners are too thick to run through the little hole at the top of the button. I always keep a pack of tapered cleaners around just for this purpose. I have always use BJ Longs brand pipe cleaners with good success.

  • Hi Brian. Very nice show. I appreciated the review of pipe cleaners and enjoyed the interview with Dirk. I wanted to suggest Jose Rubio, pipe maker in Spain as a future guest. Also Chris Asteriou. Great pipes. Hope the Icpcr or whatever it is called was good.
