  • This was one of, if not THE best interviews you’ve done. Thanks for the entertainment.

  • That was a great show. Wayne was very funny with a lot of great stories about the business. I couldn’t believe how long he spent in L.A. and didn’t become jaded. And then he moved to North Carolina; what’s that all about? I about lost it when he did his “No more signs” bit.

  • Terrific show. Wayne was filled with the perfect spirit of a pipe smoker. As a tea aficionado I really appreciated his comments on that subject. I loved his music and will definitely be looking for that new album.

  • This was one of my all-time favorite interviews. I’ve long been a fan of Wayne Powers the actor/musician but had no idea that he was such a connoisseur of the finer things such as pipes, tobacco, and tea. I was proud of myself smoking some Red Ribbon in a long-shanked Weaver pot until you threw him a curve ball with your pairing question. I nearly spit out my high-dollar loose-leaf green tea, but he’s is correct…it pairs better with black tea.

  • Great show, Brian! I loved the stories but mostly, the tea part. Wayne shares his knowledge and his stories in a beautiful and entertaining way, great interview, congrats!
