Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 387

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 387! Our featured interview on The Pipes Magazine Radio Show tonight is with Len Fogel. You may remember Len from Episode 375 when we discussed the reintroduction of the Merchant Service brand of pipes. Now, we’ll be talking about what it was like hanging out in the pipe shops of New York City 50-years ago. It’s a lot of fun reminiscing about that time. In Pipe Parts, Brian will have a tobacco review John Cotton’s Double Pressed Kentucky. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • This was an incredibly fascinating walk down the “mean streets” of New York City.
    I was thoroughly entertained by Len’s reminiscences. And, it brought me back to that same timeframe in Downtown Chicago, where there were many pipe shops in the relatively small area of the “Loop.”
    To paraphrase the Doobies, Elvis is just alright with me.
    Thanks for another fine show,

  • The pipes tobacco review was well done on another tobacco I don’t care for.
    I enjoyed Len Fogel’s talk about all the tobacco stores in New York. I got to New York in the late 40’s and left before 1950 rolled around. Damn, I loved the Brooklyn Dodgers. They were only there for another two years after I even knew that Major League Baseball was a thing.
    Really enjoyed the Elvis selection, though I suspect the recording you used wasn’t the one he usedon the record release. He could really sing.
