What goes into producing CigaRobbie Radio Program

I know it’s only an hour show! But to produce a good quality hour like the CigaRobbie Radio Program there is considerable work to be done, I want it to be so informational but that needs to be combined with entertainment and character. I really think that is one of my strengths, is there guy’s who know just as much, if not more than me? Sure, and are there more qualified people who should have a radio program? Again, yes! But I think my mixture of comedy, entertainment and industry knowledge, makes me tell a unique side of the industry.

This is the week of May 17th thru May 22nd which is my show date, I really don’t count Sunday’s it’s my day off to relax and do homework.

This Monday I am off of my regular job but will be working in the CigaRobbie Offices, just like I’m doing right now. Then I will catch up on some homework for school as I am attending Everglades University and my pursuit of a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. I go Wednesday nights from 6 to 10 pm and Saturday’s from 9 to 5 pm, but obviously I’ve been getting out early to do the show. So I usually work a 45 hour work week, combined with school, and the radio show, oh did I mention I am also involved in Kiwanis, and I go to the gym at least three to four times a week, I also fill in from time to time on the Drive at Five show with Scottie Hayes, who use to work for the Atlanta Braves organization.

Today I will go to three of the five Tobacco Depot’s which are hear in the Tampa area to drop off flyers for the show and do a little promo, Tuesday night I am going to my Kiwanis meeting right after work, Wednesday after work I have to run down to Ceviche’s a local tapas restaurant that was a old Spanish four story styled building that on rooftop with a tiki bar the WSRQ Radio 1220 AM / 106.9 FM or who does a live feed and I go up plop on the headphones do a little promotion for the CigaRobbie Radio Program then I am off to school. Thursday night, after work I have to run down to one of my show sponsors Maduro’s Cigar & Bar in south Sarasota for a CAO event, probably will catch up and have a cigar with some old friends. Friday night is busy… after work I need to set up for the Tony Katz Radio Show, which I call in at 6:35 pm and do the Cigar of the Week, for my other show sponsor, then over to a buddies girlfriends house for a little get together. Oh my home that night to work on show format and school work for the Saturday which I have to be at school by 9:00 am and to the studio by 2:15 pm for my 3:00 show.

Guy’s I say this like it is a lot of work and I can’t find the time! The truth I love every minute of it, the hustle the bustle running from work, gym, school, show, events and on some Thursday nights I relax with a few good friends and actually smoke cigars! I needed to say that because some of you were probably wondering, when does this guy have time to enjoy cigars? You’re right sometimes it’s tough, but I would not trade it for the world. Guy’s give me a call on the show; I’d love to hear from you! 941-373-1220 on Saturday’s 3 to 4 EST, and listen on web

What we smoked on the show yesterday!

Great show thanks to my entire guest: Christine Morgan, as always you do such a great job!

Christine rated the La Gloria Cubana’s Artensano’s de Tabaqueros, which Benji Menendez selected 18 cigar makers to co-create this blend with: Michael Giannini, Yuri Guillen, and Rick Rodriquez. It has Dominican and Honduran fillers combined with that distinct Connecticut wrapper foot & Ecuadorian Sumatra head; this tobacco is aged five years and is made in General Cigars, El Credito Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic. The suggested MSRP average out between all three sizes: 6x50, 6x52 and 7x50 is $8.83

And you can follow Christine and all her rating on her blog:

I smoked the Casa Fernandez Arsenio 2009, which was introduced in 2007 and made with sun grown 2006 Corojo wrapper. As a puro with Nicaraguan Aganorsa leaf which can be dry and crumbly this cigar was produced in the Tabacalera Tropical Factory and blended by cousins Eduardo Fernandez and Paul Palmer who blends for Illusione and Cruzado. This cigar coveted the 21st spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 of 2009. And with a MSRP of $5.00 it is a steal, you may know that this cigar was one of the gifts for my guest at the CigaRobbie Super bowl Party and they raved about this little robusto.

My co-producer Sammy was smoking Rocky Patel’s Renaissance with a 5 year Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper this cigar debut at the 2008 IPCPR in Las Vegas it comes in three shapes very indicative of Rocky with a Churchill, robusto and his coveted Toro size cigars. Created in the El Paraiso Factory in Danli Honduras, it has Nicaraguan fillers and a binder from the Jalapa Valley. Rocky will not give up the location of the ligero leaf center, only stating it’s from an undisclosed region in Central America. The Churchill Sammy was smoking has an MSRP of $7.75
