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 Neill Archer Roan. Neill is a pipe community celebrity.

In the opening "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian will introduce tobacco blend reviews to the show, and explain how he will do them. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • A truly good show. Neil was a fabulous guest.I can remember when he came to the KC Show as our banquet speaker. He gave a fabulous speech that centered on his youth in Wyoming. I am glad to see that he is still going to pipe shows. I can remember buying his book at the Chicago Pipe Show. He very graciously autographed it even though he barely knew who I was.
    The music by Jerry Lewis was appropriate considering his recent passing, but he should have left the singing to Dino.

  • Thanks, Dan. People have often commented on my singing voice. Oh, wait, you mean Martin. Sorry.
    Brian, a terrific conversation with Neil. I’ve spoken to him a couple of times at the Chicago shows; a real nice person. I have one Blue Riband, shape 157; it’s great smoker.
    I was speaking with fellow Summer interviewee Mike Zicha at our pipe club meeting Saturday, and we both are very enthusiastic about your proposed tobacco “investigative reviews.”
    Thanks for an entertaining show,
