"Click & Clack - The Tappet Bros -Car Talk" Tom Magliozzi Passed Away Age 77.

Tom Magliozzi of the well know NPR Car Talk Show passed away. Tom had Alzhiemers. Anyone who liked cars knows of Tom and his bother Ray. There were as entertaining as they were valuable in helping people with car problems.
I loved listening to whose two guys crack each other up. I got pretty good at imitating Tom's trade mark "Haa-haa-haa" laugh. . . to my wife's chagrin. ;D

A sample Show Clip: http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=357428287&m=357430667

The past two years their radio shows have been re-runs and brother Tom hopes that continues.

A classic radio show, and I love the puzzlers. Sad to see him go, but hopefully their show won't.

Has anyone heard it the re-runs are still playing on NPR?

I have not heard any local shows on our local NPR station lately.

They are still on, and FYI, they have been re-runs for the last 2 years, since the Dementia became an issue, however, they have dubbed in some current comments just to make it seem like real-time.

Thanks. .. maybe they switched times. Yes, the article I posted earlier mentions that they were re=runs the past 2 1/2 years or so.
