Tom and Ray Magliozzi, aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers, the comedian mechanics who host NPR's Car Talk, will no longer record new programs come this fall... but the weekly call-in series will continue to be on the air, drawing on material from their 25 years of show archives.
Here's a note from the Brothers Magliozzi:
RAY: Hey, you guys. My brother has always said, “Don’t be afraid of work.”
TOM: Right. Make work afraid of YOU!
RAY: And he’s done such a good job at it, that work has avoided him all his life.
Update: WWNO's Zehnomobile auction concluded at noon Sunday with a winning bid of $2000. Congratulations to the winner — we don't know his or her identity yet — and thanks to everyone who bid. And to those of you who thought about it, but didn't quite get your bid submitted, watch for the next WWNO car auction, and bid!
