  • The Doctors were in!
    A wonderful show. Dennis was his usual erudite, humorous and interesting presence.
    Your review of Carolina Red Flake with Perique was quite tantalizing.
    Beethoven is one of my favorite composers, and the choice was perfect for the time.
    Thanks for another enlightening and entertaining hour,

  • Nice review of the tobacco Red Flake by C&D. Pretty sure it isn’t for me but a nice review all the same.
    Some people like Dennis Congos and some people don’t.
    The Beethoven I though was an odd choice but the more you listened to it the more you liked it.

  • Another very enjoyable show. Always a pleasure to hear a passionate collector.

    I was surprised at the review of Red Flake w/ Perique. I recognize that you palette is more sophisticated than mine, but I found the Perique to be very forward in the blend, almost blotting out the Virginia. Well, to each their own. Nice music and good advice.

  • Great show. Really enjoyed the refreshing view of a pure collector. Thanks for the very honest review. It’s nice to not have any industry influence. Great music selection this week. Hope to see you an others at a pipe show on the other side of this. I think it is starting to really hit us all how much we rely on those shows. With any luck we’ll see a big increase in attendance next year.
