Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 546

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 546! Our featured interview tonight is with Jon David Cole. JD is the Owner/Tobacconist at The Country Squire in Jackson, MS, and he is the co-host of the podcast, Country Squire Radio. After a 10-year run, and approaching their 500th episode, it was announced that they would record their last episode live on March 4 at a big party in Jackson, MS. Read the press release here. In addition to talking about the podcast and the retail store, our main discussion will be JD’s recommended pipe tobaccos in each genre that are readily available for purchase, as opposed to vintage collectible tobaccos that are hard to get. At the top of the show, Brian will answer a question on how to proceed when your friend wants to try smoking a pipe for the first time. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • I’m not sure having someone commit to a $100 start-up package in pipe smoking is something most beginners would buy into. There are plenty of very good new pipes $50 and less from Brigham, Dr. Grabow, Nørding and others. And, nothing wrong with estates and basket pipes.
    John David’s tobacco suggestions were delightfully presented and a good cross-section of available blends.
    I also enjoyed his answers to the “Not-So-Fast (Less than Five) Questions.”
    Rush is always a good musical choice.
    Ach du Lieber! It’s Pachelbel, like Chanukah, challah bread and L’chayim.
    I’m right with you on the rant.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • Another very enjoyable show. The pipe parts segment was an enjoyable venture into what you would do if a newbie came to you asking for advice. I thought the $100 needed to get started was a little high but not unreasonably so. I think there are $50 pipes out there, but you could still get him started and maybe buy him a few more pouches of tobacco.
    Jon David is just one of the best guys for people to approach on tobacco, pipes, and accessories. His down-home way of speaking and the pure honesty exuding from his voice is just the ticket. Truly a great interview. It doesn’t hurt that you have been on his show a number of times and have always enjoyed yourself. His tobacco choices amongst blends that most of us can get was very informative. I think his love of Pease blends is great as I have the same feeling. I may have to try the Abingdon and Westwinster blends he mentioned.
    Yeah, I don’t really know how to pronounce Pachelbel either but what the hell.
    Love your rant. It was spot on.
