We can’t believe it is already the 4th Pipes Magazine Radio Show. Our featured guest tonight is Professor & Composer Dan Locklair. Mr. Locklair is Composer-in-Residence and Professor of Music at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He is also a pipe smoker. It should be quite an interesting conversation talking about pipes and music. On past shows we talked about some basics of pipes, such as differences between factory and artisan pipes, and estate pipes. Now it’s time to talk tobacco basics. We will also have a brief report on The C.O.R.P.S. Pipe Show that took place in Richmond, Virginia last weekend, as well as the mailbag and Brian’s rant to conclude the show.

Welcome to the third Pipes Magazine Radio Show. After the first two shows our listeners were debating which episode they liked better. We think everyone will agree that Episode Number 3 sets the bar to a new level. We worked very hard to make this show exemplary.  Mary McNiel from McClelland Tobacco Co. will be tonight’s interview. If you’ve had the chance to meet Mary at a pipe show, then you already know that she is a sweetheart. She is immensely knowledgeable about tobacco, and a pleasure to talk to. McClelland makes many popular pipe tobaccos including the Frog Morton series. We will talk about the origins of Frog Morton and unveil some other interesting background information on McClelland tobaccos. Brian will also be talking about estate pipes, he will give you the answer to last week’s trivia question and you get a new tobacco trivia to think about.

Brian also discusses the differences in factory pipes, artisan pipes, and high grades. Just what is the difference between an artisan pipe and a high grade? Listen to the show to find out.

In this episode, you’ll also find out how a Britney Spears song can be transformed into something that is actually cool and not too bad to listen to.
