Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our Featured Interview tonight is with Arno Vangore. Arno is a young man living in Holland that has traveled around Europe and is passionate about pipes and tobaccos. He researches and writes an immense amount of super interesting information on his Dutch Pipe Smoker Blog. In the “Pipe Parts” segment, Brian will talk about his favorite places to smoke. We also have our 3rd and final week of the annual auction to raise funds for Brian’s daughter’s Juvenile Diabetes Walk Team. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by,,, Missouri Meerschaum,, Cornell & Diehl, and Savinelli Pipes and Tobaccos. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

Here are the items we are kicking off the JDRF Auction with for this week.

For this week’s JDRF auction, we will have A 3-year old tin of Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired from the very first production run that was released at the Chicago pipe show in 2012, signed by Per Jensen of Mac Baren.

We also have two 4-year old tins of Mac Baren HH Highland Blend (no longer in production) from the very first production run that was released at the Chicago pipe show in 2011, signed by Per Jensen of Mac Baren.

From the first production run, only 500 tins were made, and hand-numbered. These are tin 2 of 500 and tin 499 of 500. These are on on Pipe Stud’s websitenow.

We also have three pipes that are shown above: 1. A large Nording Freehand – smoked about 3 – 4 times. 2. A Charatan Knightsbridge Bulldog #38 Made in France – smoked 2 – 3 times. 3. A Kirsten Meerschaum Bulldog Pipe (no longer in production.) Smoked 1- 2 times. With original box. These will go live on Saturday, April 18th on Pipe Stud’s eBay store. All items were donated by Kevin Godbee.

  • Hello Brian, out of the Country. I hope you are having a good time.
    I like to smoke nightly in my den/library/ham radio station. I also enjoy smoking at the monthly meetings of the two pipe clubs that I attend.
    Arno Vangore is a pipe person that I do not know. It is nice to hear from pipe people from other countries. Wow, German made Dunhill Pipe Tobacco. I smoked the manil semois (sp?) tobacco, and was not impressed, but then I like Virginias. Nice interview.
    BB King’s music is always good with a pipe.
    I’m glad to see that the JDRF fundraising is doing so well by all the good pipe people.
    Great Show Brian, Safe travels. Have fun.

  • I am fortunate enough to have a smoking room in the house so whether it is a cigar or a pipe I have a place to do it. And it is a 24/7 operation. I love having a smoke at our local tobacconist (Cigar & Tabac). Two other places I really enjoy are the smoking tents at the KC Pipe Show and the Chicago Pipe Show.
    I think the world of Arno and what he brings to the pipe community. The KC Pipe Club has published a number of his blog entries which you can find at Unfortunately this section of pipesmagazine does not let you insert pictures. I will put it in the regular forum but it is a photo of Arno at the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. The photo tells you all you need to know about the man.
    My props to you Brian for the respectful manner in which you conducted the interview. Your professionalism and respect to Arno was greatly appreciated.
    I made a very nice purchase in the JDRF Pipestud Auction Room. A nice 20-year old tin of Christmas Cheer which will be made available for smoking at the KC Pipe Show Vintage Tobacco Table.
    Good number by B.B. King.
