The Pipes Magazine Radio Show - Episode 19 | The #1 Source for Pipes and Pipe Tobacco Information

Kevin Godbee
Welcome to our 4th show of the year on this Thursday night, January 24, 2013. The Pipes Magazine Radio Show has amassed 15,000 pipe smokers listening across the globe, and we thank you for tuning in. Do you know how much of the money you spend on tobacco goes to the government in the form of taxes? We have taxes on top of taxes on top of taxes. Brian will unravel the tobacco tax mystery, and then you will better understand the saying; "ignorance is bliss." Our interview tonight is with Linwood Hines. Linwood has been in the business and the hobby for years and is one of the founding members of the Conclave of Richmond Pipe Smokers (CORPS).

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.

    With the completion of this episode, my plot to takeover Kevin’s mind is underway. Hahaha.

    Your show just keeps getting better and better. How did you score Linwood? What was the bribe??? Whatever it was, the best one you ever made. Linwood’s expertise, and the way he presents it is fantastic. He is one of the stalwarts of the hobby. I think a lot more should be said about the great opportunity to display ones collection at the expo, the great time one has in explaining it, the fun time, and the wealth of information one learns in putting together a display and the information you learn from the attendees. In my book, the CORPS Expo is one of the top shows and if you do not attend, a loss to yourself.

    My guess on the trivia question is a bone connection on the meerschaum pipe.

    BTW Brian, I have told Bill, Fuzzy, and Homer that I plan to bring my “baby” Martin to the Chicago show. We need to get together. Linwood also.

    I never quite understood all the taxation and your presentation made it clear.

    Keep up the good (no, great) work.

    I enjoyed tonight’s show very much. Your extended conversation with “Dr.” Hines was both informative and nostalgic. I, quite frankly, didn’t want it to end.
    Are you aware that the new CBS “Survivor” promos have co-opted your Ozzy theme?
    I missed the music break, as your eclectic music tastes somewhat mirror mine, and what you choose to play is always a treat. But, it was worth it to hear Linwood’s wonderful observations. I always look forward to the next show.

    Really good explanation of the various ways tobacco is taxed and why it is so much more expensive in some locations. As always a fine interview. It is always good to hear how other people go about setting up and running a pipe show.

    Everything about this show/podcast is just amazing and entertaining for me because of my love for pipes and tobaccos. It’s great to hear of others life experiences how our hobby makes for a time to relax, contemplate and enjoy the simple things in life. Brian is adding a new dimension to our hobby by bringing some of the finest and most knowledgeable pipe and tobacco people to the masses through this medium. And yes, Linwood is a Southern Gentleman through and true. Keep the show going y’all, it’s a blast.

    This was an excellent podcast. Thanks for giving Linwood the extra time, I love hearing about the old days.

    Found the tax info interesting (and baffling) and would like to hear more about all the RYO tobacco that is out there labeled pipe tobacco. This could be a big reason why it looks like pipe smoking is growing faster than it probably is but also putting a bigger target on our back for more taxes or even worse… extinction.

    It was also mentioned that the cigar lobby is very active and from everything I’ve heard I agree. Is there anyone out their lobbying for the pipe smokers? If so, who? If not… Why not?

    Very informative show as always!
    The taxation section was enlightening and disturbing at the same time.
    Linwood Hines … what a great voice. Dr. Hines I could listen to you speak all day long! You ought to be a professional narrator.
    Keep it up Brian!
