Sad news out of Boston today: Tom and Ray Magliozzi, also know as Click and Clack or the Tappet Brothers, are calling it quits, the Associated Press reports.
Their weekly NPR radio show "Car Talk" 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. 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.
