Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 506

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 506! Our featured guest tonight is Jacob Michelson. Some of our listeners, pipe show attendees, and collectors will know Jacob’s late father Mitch Michelson. Mitch had an untimely passing on August 28, 2019. He was an avid pipe collector, and used to join Jacob in model building, woodworking, model rockets, and radio controlled cars—and the pipe was always there across all of these endeavors, but ironically, they never talked much about Jacob actually smoking a pipe or collecting. One day, Jacob decided to try a pipe on his own. Then, he really got into pipes after he inherited his father’s collection. He has some great stories of his pipe journey. In Pipe Parts, Brian will have a tobacco review of King’s Red Virginia from King’s Smoking Pipes & Cigars. It’s a McClelland match for 5100 Red Virginia. We’ll find out how close they come to it. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • I really enjoyed the warm, honest and respectful discussion of Mitch Michelson’s life that Jacob and you shared with us. It is heartening to hear how Jacob has embraced his father’s passion for pipes and our pipe community, and his commitment to “do right” by Mitch’s collection.
    A Nice new talent, and a lovely song from Leah (also my daughter’s name) Marlene.
    Great “rave;” quite inspiring. Who knew that a philosopher was nestled inside that curmudgeonly exterior?

  • A really great episode!! I enjoyed the review of King’s Virginia. I know blenders can be marvelously creative with their blends but their is no way he could create an exact duplicate of McClelland 5100. I mean their can’t possibly be another person in the world as anal as Mike McNiel.
    Really enjoyed the interview with Jacob. He seemed like as guy who will do the honorable thing with his Dad’s collection of pipes. It is just a shame that he didn’t get into pipes while his dad was still alive.
    The music was decent.
    Great Rave, too!!
