Cigar Dave is the creator and host of Smoke This! the acclaimed nationally syndicated radio program devoted entirely to the Cigar Lifestyle. Cigar Dave's first Smoke This! broadcast occurred in July 1995 with one hour on WSUN Radio in Tampa, Florida. The show became an instant hit with his cadre of listeners known as "Cigar Lieutenants". Smoke This! quickly expanded to two hours and began national syndication in December 1995.
From his opening greeting of "Long Ashes" to the national cigar lighting ritual, Cigar Dave provides his loyal cigar lieutenants with current news and information regarding cigars, spirits, and other lifestyle diversions in a fast-paced lively format. Always truthful and politically incorrect, the General also leads his troops and wages battle in the fight against America's self-anointed pleasure police
The General's loyal lieutenants have bestowed upon him a long list of titles including: The King of Coronas, the Pope of Panatelas, the Rabbi of Robustos, the Sultan of Smoke, the Professor of Puff, the Prince of Pleasure, the Cigar Sommelier, and the Connoisseur-in-Chief.
Smoke This! is broadcast Saturday afternoon's from Noon-2:00 PM Eastern Time on over 90 radio stations across the United States, and may also be heard on the internet at www.smokethis.com and www.cigardave.com.
Cigar Dave is a native of Buffalo, New York, and a graduate of Syracuse University in 1986. He traces his love of cigars to his grandfather, "Cigar Abe", who faithfully enjoyed Gold Label Cigars for many years.
When not pontificating about cigars and life's other pleasures, he enjoys being serviced by his harem.
