Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 445

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 445! Our featured interview tonight is with Steve “PipeStud” Fallon. Steve has one of the most popular consignment-auction businesses for estate pipes and vintage tobaccos that he’s been running since 2006. If you know Steve, you know he’s a big fan of the original Dunhill blend, Royal Yacht. This show is our second in Volume II in our series of “Seven Questions for Seven Experts”. Over the course of seven weeks, we will ask seven prominent pipe collectors the same seven pipe related questions, and see how their answers compare. At the top of the show, for our pipe parts segment, we will have “Ask the Pipe Maker” with Jeff Gracik. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Seven Questions for Seven Experts

1. If you could only cellar 100 tins, would you prefer to have 100 tins of one blend, 50 tins each of two blends, 25 tins each of four blends, or ten tins each of ten blends?
2. What would those blends be?
3. What is the oldest tobacco you have smoked, and how was your experience with it?
4. How has your preference in pipes changed over time?
5. What is the pipe you own that has the most sentimental value, and why?
6. How does situation affect your pipe and tobacco choice, like outdoor versus indoor, morning versus evening, on the go or in a chair?
7. Which famous pipe smoker from the past would you like to share a bowl with? It has to be someone you’ve never met.

  • Steve is such a delightful conversationalist, both insightful and funny. I enjoyed his answers to the Seven Questions. I’m also proud to say that a guy I know is so generous and caring in support of your JDRF campaign. Good on ya Steve.
    I like Harry Connick, Jr. and I love Cole Porter, but Harry’s blatant imitation of Frank Sinatra was unnecessary. Harry needs to be Harry, at which he is incredibly good..
    Was that your [B][U][I]best[/I][/U][/B][I] [/I]rant? Maybe. Or, it’s the one I liked best.

  • Another great episode as always. Steve is one of my favorite guest to hear on the show and I always look forward to seeing what he has to sell on his website. Unfortunately though I’m either too slow to grab some of the vintage tobaccos he has for sale or my wallet slaps my hand and tells me no. Music was okay, but the rant was great and made up for it haha. Keep up the great work. -Bo

  • I could listen to steve for hours. What a kind and genuine soul with a great sense of humor. Great show.

  • I don’t know why but Steve’s always positive vibe with a Texas accent just seem so right. You would think there is a bluebird of happiness on his shoulder. His pipe and tobacco sales through his website has been a godsend to many of us (both sellers and buyers) even though the cost of doing business to sellers (35%) can be a little onerous. He is easily one of the most liked people in the community.
    Oh, congratulations on becoming the [I]Holy Moley, Pontiff of Pipes[/I]!
    Music was fairly enjoyable.
