Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 508

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 508! Our featured interview tonight is part two with Fred Janusek. He is a Doctor of Pipes, and professor of mathematics. Fred is in his early 80s, and he has been smoking a pipe since college in 1957. His first pipe was a very shellac-covered Yello Bole. These are some great stories back when pipes were everywhere, including men’s clothing stores.  At the top of the show, we will have an Ask the Tobacco Blender segment with Jeremy Reeves. Jeremy is the Head Blender at Cornell & Diehl, which is one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies in the USA. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • I’m with Jeremy. That’s the method I use, the 8-gram Boveda 72s. Work just fine.
    Another fun and interesting bunch of stories from Fred. I hope the newer members of our community are enjoying these as much as I am. I think it’s important to know how we got to this point in the pipe world.
    Great musical choice! Brian and The Beach Boys were among the most inventive musicians of our time.
    And, I totally agree with your gassing about gas.

  • Tremendous show!! The point that Jeremy made about the Boveda is spot on to me. You do have to leave the Boveda in the tobacco for and extended time. I think a month should do it.
    Great stories from Fred. It’s a shame I left NYC (Brooklyn) at age two or he could have mentored me. Well maybe.
    I just love the Beach Boys. I guess I was 14 or 15 when I first heard them. It was love at first listen. We all thought they would be a “one hit wonder” but man were we wrong. The produced an ocean of hits.
    I hardly go anywhere anymore so gas isn’t a major issue to me.
