An article by the New York Times in the Tuesday, Nov. 4 issue on the death of “Car Talk” host Tom Magliozzi incorrectly stated that he had earned his MIT degree in chemical engineering. Instead, he graduated with a degree in economics, politics & engineering. In addition, the car repair shop founded by Magliozzi and his brother was initially called Hackers Haven instead of Hackers Heaven. Finally, “Car Talk” became a national show in 1987, not 1977.
