Tom and Ray, the brothers who have kept me amused for countless road hours with their NPR show “Car Talk,” are hanging up their microphones, if not their tools.
Associated Press reports that Tom and Ray Magliozzi said Friday they will stop making new episodes of their auto advice show at the end of September, 25 years after “Car Talk” began in Boston. The show airs every Saturday morning and is National Public Radio’s most popular program.
Older brother Tom is 74 years old and the brothers say it’s time to stop and smell the cappuccino, according to AP.
The brothers could be counted on to provide free, funny and useful knowledge. They will be missed — even though NPR said it would continue to air the show using “repurposed” material culled from the show’s archives.
