And now a word from your president...
I thought you all would appreciate knowing about this in case
you have not heard.
Many of us are familiar with our friend,
Kevin Godbee, whose pipesmagazine.com website has quickly become the
hobby's premiere site for all things pipes and tobaccos. Did you also
know that each week the website provides airplay and access to what is
also becoming a can't miss, or "must listen to" event, The Pipesmagazine
Radio Show. The "show" is the only online radio talk / entertainment
show in the world that is targeted to pipe smokers and collectors, and
is hosted by our friend, Brian Levine. I highly recommend it as it is a
fantastic program which you can save as a podcast and airs live each
week at 8:00pm and can be downloaded or subscribed to by a host of
options including iTunes, as well as many other podcast apps for your
pc, mac or smartphone.
So, why am I telling you all this...?
Well,Thursday, 4/18 2013's "broadcast" #31 featured one of our own!
That's right, our own beloved member, Bill Roberts was the very special
guest of host, Brian Levine, for an in depth interview about Bill's role
and contributions to our beloved and noble hobby. Did you know that,
not only is Bill a very talented writer whose works have been featured
on pipesmagazine.com, including a wonderful piece on the history of our
club and the saga of the development of our outstanding NY Pipe Club
tinned tobacco blends, which can be found here, http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/pipe-tobacco-reviews/new-york-pipe-club-tobacco-blends-exclusive/,
but was also instrumental in the final development of our wonderful
pipe club blends? Also look for more of Bill's work in the next NASPC,
Pipe Collector Magazine. Well, this particular Thursday's broadcast was Bill's night!
I want to encourage all of you to either tune in weekly at 8:00pm to
listen live or access the show when more convenient for you via iTunes
or your preferred podcast app. Please go to the link below for Bill's
interview in Pipes Magazine Radio Show #31. There you can also listen
or be able to subscribe to the over 30 (and counting) podcast radio broadcasts since I
know that this episode will only serve to whet your appetite for more!
While you are at it, why don't you also send Brian a message via
pipesmagazine.com's Radio Show Forum or comment on iTunes and let him
know what you think.
