Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 534! Our featured interview tonight is with Rich Esserman. Rich has been smoking, collecting, and writing about pipes for over 40-years, and he is best known for collecting large-size Dunhill pipes. Brian and Rich are going back to the discussions with Fred Hanna to see where Rich agrees with Fred, and where he has his own take on different aspects of pipes and tobacco.  At the top of the show, Brian will have a tobacco review on Savinelli’s Janus blend. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Rich is, as ever, a welcomed guest. Having him comment on “Inside Fred’s Head” is gonna be fun. This was an enjoyable opening segment and I look forward to further conversations on the topic.
    I got a big kick out of Mel’s song, which I haven’t that in years. Roy’s arrangement of “Angels” was very innovative and jazzy.
    The “mail bag” catch-up was filled with interesting questions, comments, and reports. Thanks for sharing these communications.
    “Prejudice is bad, diversity is good!” Amen.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • As always this was a really entertaining show. r94 some reason or other I can’t get in Savinelli pipes or tobaccos. They really aren’t my thing. Judging the reactions of my buds on the forums I am clearly on this losing side of this argument.
    It’s hard to follow any line of thought in Rich’s opinion and those espoused in “Inside Fred’s Head. But it really doesn’t matter as both argue their points cogently.
    I sort of enjoyed Mel Blanc’s song. He is truly the master of all voices. Your second selection I found to be of higher musical quality than the first but had to literally force myself to listen to all of it as it was a strict instrumental. Due to my tone deafness, I have a lot of trouble just sitting through them.
