  • Pleasant enough show with a personable young man. It is amusing when newbie thinks a typical Savinelli is an expensive pipe. Wait until PAD sets in.
    Enjoyed the music.

  • Matthew was, as Dan said, very personable. The conversation was quite entertaining, and I found myself nodding in recognition, as we old farts do, when confronted by “novice” smokers who is treading a familiar path. And, Matthew, thank you for your service.
    I very much enjoyed the Kreisler piece (yes, you messed up the title), and Primrose is an absolute master of the viola. Just beautiful music.
    Another fun show, thanks.

  • I have been pleasantly surprised by this new smoker series on the show. I took up a pipe in the early 80s, but because of job requirements, health insurance issues, parental pressures, location (have you ever tried to get pipe tobacco in Delta Junction, Alaska pre-interet?), it was an on again off again part of my life. When my son became a pipe a smoker a few years ago, I finally began to take pipe smoking seriously. What I’ve discovered is that while I am demographically an old codger smoker, I have far more in common with these new smokers you are interviewing than I do with life time pipe smokers.
