Oregonians Share Sadness, Car Talk Moments Following Death Of Tom Magliozzi


You always know when you’ve stumbled into a Car Talk broadcast — it’s only a matter of seconds before you recognize the thick New England accents, the “dad jokes” followed by the raspy laughs.

Many were saddened upon learning the news that host Tom “Click” (or is it “Clack?”) Magliozzi died Monday due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 77.

Oregonians took to Twitter to express their condolences, and we’ve received many comments on Facebook about your favorite Car Talk moments. I remember many Saturday mornings listening to the brothers banter over breakfast with my parents growing up.

Though the show ended its run of new episodes when the hosts retired in 2012, OPB still plays reruns on Saturdays and Sundays. What are your favorite moments on Car Talk? Here are a few from WBUR in Boston.
