'Car Talk' Putting on Brakes
How will we know what's wrong with our cars? After 25 years, the chatty pair of mechanic brothers from Boston are calling it quits.
Sad news out of Boston, MA today: Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as the Saturday morning radio mechanics on NPR's "Car Talk," are calling it quits, the Associated Press reports.
The show will continue to air in reruns, but after 25 years of giving at once useful and hilarious advice on car maintenance to callers with every manner of malfunction, no new episodes will be produced. Older brother Tom is 74-years-old, while Ray is 63.
The show was first broadcast on WBUR in Boston in 1977. It's now the most popular program on NPR and is heard coast-to-coast. Locally it can be heard on WABE, 90.1 FM Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
