Publisher's Summary

Typical advice from Tom and Ray's Car Talk: "Car won't go in reverse? Buy a house with a circular driveway." A.k.a. The Tappet Brothers or Click and Clack (like the sounds from a car in disrepair), Tom and Ray have "faces perfect for radio" and Boston accents as thick as chowder. Their show, one of National Public Radio's most popular, lets listeners (2.3 million of them) call in with their car woes while they dish out their wit and know-how. At the end of each hour, 2 of 2 things are guaranteed to happen: you'll learn something about your motor vehicle and you'll have a belly laugh - now that's Formula One radio.

Delivery: Weekly (Sundays)

What the Critics Say

Peabody Award Winner, 1992

"I love Car Talk. Any time that I try to fix my car and it still doesn't work - I hold Tom and Ray responsible." --Bill Cosby
"I love 'Cah Tahk,' my husband loves 'Cah Tahk,' and even my cah loves 'Cah Tahk.' It's the only funny thing about traffic in Los Angeles." --Jane Curtin
"I like them so much that I'm going out to buy a broken car just so I can call them." --Gene Shalit
"Even my car listens to Car Talk." --Robert Klein
"What's turned Tom and Ray into a cult hit...isn't just the mechanical information. It's their take on how cars affect American lives and loves and values....The brothers' mixture of consumer advice and mechanical mayhem even appeals to pedestrians who can't tell a carburetor from a cam shaft. A lot of their listeners don't even own cars. Topics range from fuel injectors to backseat romance. And they seem the masters of both." --60 Minutes
"Sure, Car Talk appears to be a show about automobile repair. In actuality, Car Talk is a meditation on the relationship between man and machine. It's a way to confront our helplessness in the face of technology; it's an explosion of the myth that Americans worship cars. It's Cars and Catharsis. And the reason Car Talk transcends the advice-show genre is that at the wheel are Tom and Ray Magliozzi, a pair of MIT-graduate brothers from East Cambridge with accents thicker than the sludge in Boston Harbor." --Rolling Stone

    "Lots of yaks"

    I listened to these guys on the way into work today. People passing by must have thought I was crazy because I was laughing out loud with nobody else in the car. They are histerical and really seem to enjoy what they do. I plan to buy a years subscription to downloads to their show. Buy them and you won't be sorry. Much better than listening to the comedy channels on satelite radio.
