Popular public radio host Tom Magliozzi, who co-hosted NPR's Peabody Award-winning "Car Talk" for 35 years with his brother Ray, died on Monday of complications from Alzheimer's disease, according to a NPR. He was 77.

The Magliozzi brothers became famous as "Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers" on the weekly NPR show "Car Talk," peppering their advice show about car troubles with their wise-cracking banter and raucous laughter. It ran from 1987 to 2012 but still plays in some markets in syndication.
