Smoking a Pipe Right Now

We have a pipe personalities packed Pipes Magazine Radio Show tonight. We’ve been running two different series with two different prominent pipe collectors and authors. We have “Inside Fred’s Head” with Fred Hanna. He is the author of the book, “The Perfect Smoke”, and known for collecting straight grain pipes. The other series is a follow-up to Fred, “Rich Responds” with Rich Esserman. Rich has penned innumerous articles about pipes and tobacco for several publications, and he is known for collecting quite large pipes. We’ll be featuring the final remnants of those two series all in this show. As if that’s not enough, at the top of the show our segment will feature pipe artisan Jeff Gracik with another installment of “Ask the Pipemaker”.

The show airs every Tuesday at 8:00pm eastern US time, and can be found at PipesMagazine.com and all podcast apps.

Hi guys, another good listen for my Wednesday evening smoke, thank you.

Pipe Parts.
Totally agree and understand where Jeff is coming from, when asked about making pipes from other materials. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Was this the final with installment of "Inside Fred's Head & Rich Responds"? It's always a great listen having these two stalwarts of pipe smoking on the show, but I was expecting a kind of Head to Head thing, where they would mete out each others opinions/responses. A suggestion for a future show, perhaps?

A very eclectic choice of music choice for the show tonight. Mute Math, never heard of them, not being a Prog' Rock lover. But, having listened to the song a couple times, not too bad. They have certainly got the old school of prog' rock off pat.

Looking forward to the next installment,
Cliff - Honkytonk Man.
