  • An absolutely fascinating and fun show. I really enjoyed the conversation with Lord Morgan and Shannon. It is heartening to know that a truly American company, Missouri Meerschaum, will continue the production of Old Dominion pipes. Both of these great smoking pipes are in my rotation.
    I always get a kick out of talking with Phil, Pat and Shannon at our Chicago Shows over the years.
    Dean Martin. Nothing more needs to be said.
    With reference to your rant, Amen.

  • Really good show. I really enjoyed the section on the guy who had two collections of pipes. First, was a collection of Comoys pipes. I thought the comment you had on collections was very good. He had a very nice collection of Comoys. He put it together over time and didn’t spend a ton of money on pipes. Second, was his daily pipes. This really wasn’t a collection in any sense of the word but rather a random assortment of pipes that he really liked smoking.
    The interview with Phil Morgan and his daughter Shannon Hock was really good. Phil should be proud of his work with the brand. Since he took over the brand it has a new life and is a totally vigorous brand. Now that he is retiring Shannon will be a very good manager of the brand. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with.
    Loved the music. Dino is just great at anything he does.
    Your rant was spot on. It drives me crazy when people misuse the English language. My pet peeve is the misuse of the word unique. When you use this word remember it means there is only one thing of its kind. People are constantly using it when they shouldn’t be.
