“Car Talk” shows co-host Tom Magliozzi has died

Tom Magliozzi, who was co-host with his younger brother Ray in the show “Car talk” died on Monday at his home. The show broadcast on NPR, which was most popular for more than thirty years. He was died at age of 77.

He died from complications from Alzheimer’s disease, according to NPR reports. 

Magliozzi and his younger brother had got fame with personalities as “Click and Clack” on the weekly car talk show, which went national in 1987. 

The weekly one hour long show broadcasted on NPR about the mechanical problems of cars which viewed through an automotive prism: Why does a car suddenly stop working? Should I give this clunker one more chance? Why won’t my husband pay for a mechanic to fix our car? 

The show “Car Talk” reached more than 4 million listeners in a week. In one segment called “Stump the Chumps” callers would be asked questions if the advice was not correct which they received. The episodes heard on 660 stations but the brothers stopped to telecast new episodes in 2012.
