Goodbye Tom Magliozzi

I'm not sure if he was Click or Clack, but I do know listening to those guys goof around always put me in a good mood. He'll be missed.

Didn't they do there last show only about a year ago? Very sad loss, I have always found then amusing. Sometimes down right hysterical.

Yea, it wasn't much more than a year. They were not great comedians but their laughter and good natures were contagious. Just fun people.

They weren't comedians but some of the stuff that happened in the show was pretty funny, regardless.

It was fall of 2012, although it was never announced on air.

I started listening to them when they were just a segment on Sunday Edition, way back when. Always entertaining and I would have loved to have had cappuccino with Tom in Hahvahd Square.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

It was good to hear someone on the radio that didn't talk funny by pronouncing, "r"s

I always listened to the Car Talk show on Saturday AM's when I was brewing.
Saturday mornings won't be the same.
