I don't know how many Car Talk fans we have here, but I just learned of this and it greatly saddened me. Tom's sense of humor was unique and his laugh was down right infectious. He was a cigar smoker, but I think I recall him mentioning a few times that he also enjoyed pipe smoking. RIP Tommy.

I remember when I first heard them one Saturday morning on my local PR station back in the mid/late '90s, I was HOOKED !! 10 am every Saturday morning since is my time for a 'cuppa and pipe while I listen to "the brothers" ! They went off the air, as a live show two years ago with NPR playing previous shows from years past. he was really smart and his laugh was truly infectious. Sad Sad

Very sad news.

Car Talk was a great show.

One of the greatest honors I have ever had as a musician, was being in a band with a song that was used in one of their intermissions and permanently enshrined into their catalog of "auto-musicology" Very Happy

RIP Tom Magliozzi

I was very sad to hear this. I admired their gentle humor and outstanding automotive knowledge. They put on such a good show even my non-automotive wife loved them. I've been listening to those guys for what seems like forever. I know they've been airing reruns for a couple of years but I bet I've been a fan for like 20 years or more. Where ever you are Tom, don't drive like your brother.

I was heart broken over this news. I grew up listening to their show and they were definitely a big reason why this girl loves cars. My Saturdays will be a little emptier these days.
