Best of Car Talk

Saturday & Sunday at 10:00am
Tom & Ray Magliozzi

Imagine the Marx Brothers answering questions about automobiles. Picture Monty Python trying to imitate car noises. Think of A.J. Foyt telling someone how to open the car hood. Mix it all up, throw in a little Dr. Ruth and a little Smothers Brothers, and you've got Car Talk, NPR's Peabody Award-winning radio program heard by more than 4 million listeners each week.

For more than two decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers) have been America's funniest auto mechanics. By making millions of listeners laugh, they have become the defining voices of public radio weekends. Their mixture of honesty, authenticity, knowledge, and humor won them numerous awards (including a Peabody), accolades from every major national publication, and the loyalty of millions of public radio listeners.

Tune in to hear some of the funniest, most informative segments featured from their show see why they remain two of public radio's most beloved hosts.
