Welcome to the Artful Codger Show on B...

Tonight's episode will take us into the opening of J. Leland Brown's long out-of-print handbook for pipe smokers, "The Art of Pipe Smoking Pleasure".  Published in 1946 during the Golden Age of Pipe Smoking- it offers a unique look into our shared interest and though it may at first appear dated, the modern pipe smoker will find amongst its humor, opinions, and useful advice a kinship of perspective with our father's, or even grandfather's generation and cement the very things we love about it as timeless and perhaps even more relevant today than when it was written.
