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! We will have a slightly different format on tonight’s show. We will start with “Ask the Pipe Maker” with Jeff Gracik. Then, we will have a short segment where Brian answers a question from a listener. Finally, we have “The Lost Tapes” from the former owners of the now closed McClelland Tobacco company, Mike & Mary McNiel. This is the third time we’re saying these are the final conversations, but we really mean it this time … we think. Most people know that McClelland was one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies for 40-years. Their story is well told in Tobacconist Magazine. The part that only pipe show attendees know is that Mary & Mike are a joy, and a pleasure to listen to, so our show listeners are in for a real treat. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!
