Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 436

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 436! Our featured interview tonight is with Per George Jensen. Most pipe enthusiasts know that Per is the longtime Mac Baren Tobacco Company spokesman. Mac Baren has a long and interesting history that goes back to the year 1887. It has been privately, family owned ever since. We’ll cover their interesting history and sadly, Henrik Halberg, the fourth generation owner recently passed, so we’ll reminisce on him as well. At the top of the show, for our Pipe Parts segment, Brian will have a Rattray’s Marlin Flake tobacco review using the current production from Germany. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • The Rattrays Marlin flake was a good review but I was left wondering why this tobacco was still being produced. It seems to be in sitting in the middle of “not good enough to be” this tobacco and “not good enough to be ” that tobacco.
    The interview with Per Jensen was highly enjoyable. The guy has been on the show 3 or 4 times all ready and he never has enough time to tell the whole story of something. Mr Halberg seems a fascinating guy who restrained his dictatorial sense by a strong commitment to his company and the company motto “You don’t buy anything unless you have the money”. I really got tired of companies reliance on lawyers and accountants as mainstays of their leadership group. All those guys do is tell you why you can’t do something. Henry VI in Skakespeares play had the right idea when he said “let’s kill all the lawyers”. It s good idea but little extreme.
    Music was surprisingly good. I found it very enjoyable.

  • Per and you hit all the right notes in your reminiscences of and homage to Henrik Halberg. It was an informative, entertaining and warm tribute.
    Bobby Womack’s version of Jonathan King’s song was wonderful.
