Tom and Ray Magliozzi said Friday they will stop making new episodes of their comic auto advice show at the end of September, 25 years after “Car Talk” began in Boston.
Darn, I'll surely miss it.

That's a bummer. Only two people in the world that could make talking about cars and engines and problems into something enjoyable to listen to.

I follow them on twitter.

I'll miss it too.
Funny story: In 1991 I was working in the same building as one of the Magliozzi brothers (Tom, I think) in Boston's north end ( we could smell his cigar and hear him laughing through the walls. I had a co-worker named Louis Steim who went and introduced himself to Tom. Tom got a funny look on his face. The next week on the radio show, they listed "The Director of Staff Morale" as Lois Steim. [Low Esteem].

Yes that's them! I had purchased 3 CD set of best of Car Talk and made a mistake of taking them with me when I rented a car. I forgot to take them out of the CD caddy when I returned the car. When queried next day, the rental company professed total ignorance. Oh well.

The show on "Mother's Day" is my all time favorite.

They will be missed.

I can't count the number of puzzlers that i made my students solve in c or c++ or java or python.

I can say, that while i loved them, my students didn't always have the same opinion.,

Be well Tom and Ray
