There's big news — and sad news today — from the world of Public Radio. Tom and Ray Magliozzi, hosts of NPR's wildly popular Car Talk, announced they are retiring. As of this fall, Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, who have been handing out automotive advice and plenty of humor for the past 25 years, will stop recording new programming. Their weekly call-in series will continue to be distributed by NPR, drawing on material from their archives.

Car Talk started as an experiment right here at WBUR, where Tom and Ray have recorded the show for the past 35 years.
