After 25 years on the air, NPR's chatty Car Talk duo are finally putting on the brakes.
NPR says Tom Magliozzi, 74, and his brother, Ray, 63, announced today that they will stop making episodes of Car Talk at the end of September, NPR's blog Two-Way reports.
The Saturday morning chat show about cars features the real-life Boston mechanics bantering about automobiles, car repairs or whatever else is on their mind.
"My brother has always been 'work-averse,' " says Ray, 63, in explaining the move. "Now, apparently, even the one hour a week is killing him!"
"It's brutal!" Tom adds.
NPR says in a statement that it will "actively produce new shows built from the best of its 25 years of material - more than 1,200 shows - with some updates from the brothers."
