BOSTON (May 30, 2013) — The automotive advice has been crisp, if not blatantly tongue-in-cheek at times.
Caller: "The temperature light on my car's dash keeps going on."
Magliozzi Brothers: "You didn't take the radiator cap off and see if there's coolant, did you?"
Magliozzi Brothers: "You want to do this entirely by inference, eh?"
"Car Talk" quickly became the most popular program on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition," as two mechanics-turned-comedians—brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi—took to the radio Sunday mornings to dish out advice on all things automotive.
The Magliozzis called it quits in October of last year after 25 years of syndication, but Autoweek magazine met the two Bostonians in May 1987 shortly after their radio show first went national.
