Celebrating 25 years! The most comprehensive collection of Car Talk highlights ever, mixing automotive advice with wisecracks, roadside philosophy and irresistible guffaws.
In 1987, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, also known as Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, made the leap from nursing the motley car population of New England to creating the nationally beloved public radio phenomenon that we all know as Car Talk. The advice may be a little suspect, and the memories in desperate need of a tune-up, but the laughs are genuine as Click and Clack look back on an illustrious—if not industrious—25 years of delighting NPR audiences with their wit, wisdom, and occasionally relevant musings on the maintenance of cars. Lovingly compiled by the long-suffering lackeys at Car Talk Plaza, this collection represents the most memorable, most hilarious moments from the show’s vast archives.
Car Talk: 25 Years of Lousy Car Advice is now available on audio CD and digital download.
We’re excited to announce the upcoming March 2015 release of the next entry in the ever popular Car Talk Classics series No Factory Recalls. So Far.
There may be an occasional flaw in the auto expert advice of brothers Tom and Ray Maggliozzi, but the complaint box remains empty, with no factory recall in sight. The next entry in the ever popular Car Talk Classics series features four all-time favorite Car Talk episodes, hand-picked by hosts Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, and presented here together for the first time. Car Talk continues to be one of public radio’s most popular and laugh-inducing programs, with a weekly audience of 4 million listeners.
Car Talk, winner of a Peabody Award, is broadcast each week to NPR stations nationwide. The world’s wackiest call-in show, it mixes automotive advice with wisecracks, roadside philosophy, and guffaws. No problem is too ridiculous, no solution too absurd, and before you know it, “you’ve wasted another perfectly good hour listening to Car Talk.” Or, in this case, four.
