Joe Soucheray's 'Garage Logic,' along with Patrick Reusse, say goodbye in final shows at 1500 ESPN

Their final shows were Friday as the station makes big changes.

After saying an emotional goodbye to listeners at Minnesota State Fair last week, the gang from "Garage Logic" and long-time Twin Cities radio and newspaper man, Patrick Reusse, officially signed off from 1500 ESPN on Friday. 

September 7 was penciled in as the final day for "Garage Logic," "The Ride with Reusse" and "Sports Talk" ever since 1500 ESPN decided to cancel the shows a month ago, as part of a series of changes the sports station is making. 

It was mostly business as usual for Joe Soucheray, the host of Garage Logic, although he did mix in nostalgia by reading letters and emails from thankful listeners, and signing off by telling his fans that they are "heaven-sent from above." 

Garage Logic, although off the air at 1500 ESPN, will continue as a podcast and isn't expected to miss a beat as it will be available per usual beginning Monday. The show has a new website right here

Reusse signed off with a simple: "Thanks for 35 years." 

He'll still be a regular guest on the station's new afternoon show featuring Judd Zulgad and Manny Hill, and is expected to join them on Monday. 

As of Saturday morning, however, 1500 ESPN's website had wiped out any sign that "Garage Logic" or "The Ride with Reusse" existed, leaving some listeners frustrated that they couldn't find their favorite shows. 

Lo and behold, there is a way. You can find Garage Logic right here, and Reusse's final appearance right here.

Meanwhile, Reusse has been on Twitter expressing both thanks, and the sarcasm he's known for.
