Click and Clack will retire after 35 years of useful and funny auto maintenance advice.
Today is a sad day if you are a fan of Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as the Saturday morning radio mechanics on NPR's Car Talk. They are calling it quits, NPR 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. Also known as Click and Clack, 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, including a dozen stations in Michigan. With older brother Tom turning 75 this year, the guys decided it was time to "stop and smell the cappuccino."
