  • Hi Brian,
    Tobacco has had a varied history from where it is grown to the many uses it has found.
    Steve Monjure has been a friend for many years. He also represents Rinaldo pipes. I have obtained many a fine pipes from him. One quote attributed by our club members to me is “I have never met a Rinaldo Pipe that I didn’t like”. It has been that way since he brought them into the USA. Steve is a pleasure to know and work with. Our club just had some custom pipes made by one of his companies and they were superb.
    Music – I have no idea what it is from, but would guess something Disney.
    Rant – People are strange (sounds like a song. Maybe they couldn’t read?
    Great show. I enjoyed the interview with Steve.

  • Enjoyed the show, particularly the discussion of tobaccos around the world.
    Steve Monjure has been a major figure in the pipe business for quite a while. He is a major player in presenting Italian pipes to the American market. He is a genuinely good person and a great supporter of pipe shows.
    I am proud to say I have no idea where the music selection came.
    The amazing thing is not that people won’t read a sign that is right in front of them, but that they will act offended if you point it out to them.
