Hello everyone, and welcome back to another exciting episode of Half Ashed. This week, we have special guest William “Cigar Coop” Cooper. William is well known in cigar circles for his outstanding written blog (Cigar_Coop), and most recently for his partnership with Stogie Geeks. They are doing some great things in combining the written word with broadcasting. We are smoking an Unbanded cigar sent in by Coop himself, so tune in to watch Craig and I make all kinds of wild swings at what it might be. We cover a lot of ground in news, legislation, and other related topics. Join us for the fun!
Next week, there are two things of note to mention. First, it is our one-year anniversary since first taking this rambling roadshow we call Half Ashed onto the broad airwaves of the internet. We’re celebrating by bringing our inspirations for doing so on – Bob McDuffee and Dale Roush, of Dogwatch Cigar Radio fame will be joining us for the show. Secondly, we will be smoking the 400th Anniversary Orinoco maduro as our Cigar of the Week (sounds delicious, huh!). And finally, our schedule will be slightly different. I will be returning from the Dominican Republic on Saturday, which mean we won’t be able to record Friday night. SO, we’ll be recording on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8th. Don’t forget!
As always, we’re constantly looking for suggestions about potential Cigars of the Week, and Unbanded cigars. So if you have one drop us a line at one of the email addresses below. Be sure to check back in next Friday night at 9:30pm EST at Cigar Federation (details on locating the show will be on the front page that evening an hour before showtime), where you can catch us recording and participate in the chatroom. If you would like to contact us in the meantime, you can reach us through the contact page or at the following email addresses: [email protected] or [email protected] Please feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions you’d like answered, comments to make…or even compliments and complaints.
