    R.I.P. Tom Magliozzi of "The Tappet Brothers" (Click and Clack)

    I think the man deserves mention. Tom Magliozzi of NPR's radio show "Click And Clack" passed away due to alzhiemers, age 77. One could learn about their cars and laugh along with these guys. I know I will miss the show. Who here wasnt in stitches listening to them?

    Pretty sure I misspelled or something, but you know what I'm sayin

    I've listened to their show quote a few times. Sad to hear one of them is gone.

    Sorry to hear that; I didn't know that he was ailing. I guess the segments they have been running on NPR are all old re-runs. They made quite a pair; and funny too.
    Have wings, will travel.

    Amazing show, very entertaining and educational. Many are unaware that the Magliozzi brothers, 12 years apart in age, Ray being younger, are both MIT graduates. The show has been aired from archives for the past 2 years as Tom had been battling the impact of Alzheimer's disease. Rest in Peace Tom, you will be missed.

    Yes, they have been reruns for the last two years. I remember their last on-air show. Sad day indeed.

    Entertaining and informative radio shows are becoming hard to find lately.
    These two brothers had a great format to work from, and Tom will surely be missed by the multitudes who tuned-in every week to enjoy their efforts in broadcasting.
    R.I.P. and may God Bless your eternal journey.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.
