The Pipes Magazine Radio Show - Episode 15 | The #1 Source for Pipes and Pipe Tobacco Information

Welcome to the last show of 2012 as we prepare for the New Year’s celebration. Our featured guest tonight is Fr. David Kobak. He is a man of many artistic talents: making pottery, painting watercolors, playing the flute … and of course he is a pipe smoker and a member of the Pipes Magazine Forums. Brian will talk about "system pipes" and answer last week’s trivia question. We will have music from Composer and pipe smoker Dan Locklair.

Tonight’s show is sponsored by SmokingPipes.com, Missouri Meerschaum, 4noggins.com, and Cup O’ Joes. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

We hope you enjoy our 45-minute 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 after the initial broadcast is complete here.

    Well Brian, that does it. Now I’ll need to add a Peterson to my collection!
    I learn something new every episode.
    Thank you for having me as a guest; it was most enjoyable.

    Great Show Brian! I enjoyed the interview with Fr. Dave, even though I prefer Virginias.

    Our Washington, PA club has been around since 1999. One of our members was/is Fr. John Karwin,SJ. He taught Math and Philosophy at Wheeling Jesuit University while a member of our club. I had run across Fr. John in the mid-1970s when he and I both had letters in the Pipe Smokers Ephemeris. Fr. John kept a journal containing comments on every tobacco he had ever smoked. When last we saw the journal, it had over 2,000 entries. For the past three years he has been ‘retired’ at a facility outside of Boston. We sorely miss him and all he added to our meetings.

    With respect to the question on Paris, I have been to Paris twice (1980s and 1997). I found the cost of tobacco very expensive and the choices extremely limited. I would suggest that any visitor take his own stock of tobacco. I did pick up a large Dunhill Group 6 cumberland at the duty free shop on my return on the first visit.

    Movie wise, I had the opportunity to see the HOBBIT movie on Xmas-eve. I thought it was great, especially when practically all of the dwarves were smoking quite a variety of pipes.

    Lastly, I am starting guitar lessons (hopefully you can teach an old dog new tricks) and will bring my baby Martin to Chicago in May. My goal is to jam with Linwood at next year’s Richmond CORPS meeting.

    Keep up the great shows.

    BTW, a lot of amature radio (HAM) operators smoke pipes.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you very much for mentioning me about the Paris trip on your radio blog!!
    I must clarify that I am not going there with the intentions to buy “expensive” tobacco and overpriced pipes, but to find a nice place to sit down a smoke my pipes. I will be in Paris in late January for a business trip.

    !!Happy New Year!!

    Ron

    Interesting show & great comments by Fr.Dave…
    Never been to Paris - seems like it would be a nice place to visit.
    The music was cool- it made me imagine watching an older b&w mystery movie…
    Another great show! Happy New Year!

    Just a day or two ago I got an email from Vernon Vig, UPCA President Emeritus, smoking his pipe out in front of Notre Dame cathedral with a lovely young lass on his arm.

    Loved the interview with Fr. Dave.

    The segment on filtered pipes and system pipes was very informative.
