Remember the tune "Stranger on the Shore". Mr. Acker Bilk has passed:

If you are a car enthusiast, perhaps you've listened to the familiar humor of Click and Clack on NPR, Tom has passed:

I don't how those two would regain there composure after some of there laughing spells. There ending credits were funny. For example; Peekoff Andropoff, Heywood U Buzoff, Roxanne Debries, etc.

You would never know when listening to them that they both graduated from MIT. Tom had a Ph. D. in marketing. Yet very down to Earth guys. Many offers for endorsements but they never sold out. They set up an garage in Cambridge (edit: in the late 70's) where you could rent a bay and tools for $3 an hour. I never would have kept my heap running without it. With your three bucks, you got advice and an extra pair of hands from Tom or Ray. Great guys.

Tom will be missed. I almost felt like I knew those guys. Been a fan for so long.
