Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
This collection of humorous but disjointed excerpts from NPR’s long-running Car Talk series will appeal to longtime fans of the show and listeners new to the offbeat automotive advice of radio hosts “Click and Clack.” This audiobook focuses less on the Magliozzi brothers’ often amazing automotive diagnoses and more on the their crazier radio moments—e.g., when a daughter calls asking for her father’s forgiveness for lying about a car she wrecked years ago or when Tom and Ray receive a call from an astronaut in space. While listeners may not get any practical car advice, they’ll love the banter and goofiness of the show’s hosts. (Jan.)
