Those of you who are friends–in “real life,” or on Facebook–know that last week was a rough one for me, and for anyone who loves the NPR (National Public Radio) show, “Car Talk.”
I could write an entire dissertation about Tom and Ray. I could write a book, but I’m sure that they chose their biographer years ago. Today, I’ll just tell you how the Magliozzi Brothers crept into my heart and into my psyche. And how “Car Talk”–a radio program presumably about car repair and horse power–led me to start f!lly Racing Radio, and work toward radio equality for women in horse racing media.
I will dedicate tonight’s show to Tom Magliozzi, even as I drink my coffee from my “Car Talk” mug. Without Tom and Ray–without their laughter, their joy and their open invitation to anyone who was listening–to have fun and to enjoy life–I don’t know that f!lly Racing Radio ever would have come into being.
