Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 532

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 532! Our featured interview tonight is with Sergio Castello, a pipe smoking enthusiast from Mexico. He lives in the capital city of Sonora, Hermosillo, near the border with Arizona. He is a vintner by profession, growing table grapes in his family’s business, Viñedos 2000. His grandfather, a doctor, smoked a pipe, and although he never saw him smoke, he did see the pipe rack in his office as a kid, and would play with them and pretend he was smoking. When he was 18-years old he got into cigars, and then pipes. At the top of the show we have a tobacco review of a surprise gift that went missing for a year and a half of an L.J. Peretti blend. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • A very nice review of the Peretti London Flake.
    You conversation with Sergio was an absolute delight! The enthusiasm that Sergio displayed in his embrace of the pipe and tobacco community was quite refreshing. Such ebullience!
    As a Sinatra fan, I really enjoyed “I Believe” which is originally from the movie “It Happened In Brooklyn,” in which Frank and Jimmy Durante sing some duets, of which this is one. Alex Stordahl’s swinging arrangement for this 1947 recording is typical of the many that he and Frank did together. (By the way, that’s a saxophone solo not a clarinet.)
    My sympathies on the passing of your Aunt Judy. May her memory be a blessing.
    I hope you and yours have a Happy Thanksgiving.
    And thanks for giving us a wonderful show

  • Real good review of Peretti’s London Blend was enjoyable. Seems like a decent blend and I may give it a try.
    Greatly enjoyed the interview with Sergio Castelo. I found great pleasure in “Castelo on Castello”. I just happen to think that Castello is the finest of the Italian factory pipes.
    Ol’ Blue Eyes rarely disappoints. Really enjoyed this song.
    So sad to hear about you Aunt Judy. It seems like she had a large impact on your life. El Maleh Rachamim.
