Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 391! Our featured interview tonight is with Per Georg Jensen. Most pipe enthusiasts know Per from The Mac Baren Tobacco Co. Only some know that his father was in the pipe business with Georg Jensen Pipes. It’s a great story on how he accidentally fell into the pipe business, which was started in the early ’50s, and is still going today. Per and his sister currently manage the business. In Pipe Parts Brian will discuss the best way to clean and disinfect your pipe stems based on the type of material they are made of. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • It’s always a treat to visit with Per, great stories, good humor and interesting insights.
    Enjoyed the Winwood classic.
    Thanks from “the poet”– it was nicely read. Slim Pickens is right.

  • Your remarks on cleaning your pipe were very good but as for me, as I’ve said many times, if my pipe needs cleaning I just have George Dibos do it. If you haven’t had him on the show yet he would be a great guest. Just loved the interview with Per Jensen. While he wouldn’t recognize me from Adam I once had an amazing short conversation with him at Chicago. I always envisioned him as the face of Mac Barens and never really thought of him as head of a pipe company. His stories were very interesting as he detailed how he sort of got into the pipe business. What was he , eight or ten, when he began sweeping up the shop for his father? It’s always a shame when you lose a parent but especially so at an early age.

  • You really hit it out of the park again with regards to the last 2 shows…………I’m so grateful that between you both (Brain & Kevin) that you have really put together such a winning team and that we can all reap some formidable rewards from your efforts. Best of luck with the diabetes programming that you are putting together again this year. I’ll do my best to chip in again and lastly, thanks for being my friend Brian. UDA Man!!

  • Great conversation with Per as always. Very casual and enjoyable. Sorry about your contractors, that sounds frustrating. Also, my apologies for the long absence. Greywoodie has kept me busy but I also have been making a lot of handmade pipes under nQa, and just remembered that your show is a great way to spend my time in the workshop. Keep it up.
