Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 480! Tonight we have Rich Esserman back with us for an epic show. Rich is quite well known in the hobby. He has been smoking, collecting, and writing about pipes for over 40-years, and he is best known for collecting large-size Dunhill pipes. We will have Brian and Rich discussing the different types of pipe collectors. Find out which one you are … or are you just a “pipe accumulator”? This episode will go right into the conversation, and bypass the usual Pipe Parts segment. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • That was a great collective discussion on the discussion of collections. I really enjoy the warm and easy conversations you two guys have. I hope there will be many more topics you guys take up in the future.
    The music from Bing was a perfect kick-off for the coming season.
    As for your rave…No, Brian, thank YOU, for providing that bright spot each week.
    To you and all my Jewish friends, Gut Yontiff! Happy Hanukkah!
    (And know, that I rue the atrocities of my distant ancestor Antiochus IV, that engendered this celebration.)

  • I love these shows with Rich. Something you guys said hit a cord with me. I collect handmade bamboo fly rods which is an even smaller niche than pipes. I was confronted by a famous Colorado rod maker who I had consigned to make me a rod. He asked how I liked the rod. I confessed that I hadn’t fished it. It was too pretty. He was very angry and demanded that I either return the rod or fish it. I feel most pipe makers feel the same. Either smoke it or pass it on to someone who will. Keep bring the big man on. His stories are great.
