Car Talk is a hilarious, fast-paced call-in program in which hosts Tom and Ray Magliozzi take the fear out of car repair and find the fun in engine failure. Every week, these uninhibited Boston brothers dispense automotive first aid and roadside philosophy to more than 4.1 million listeners on 588 public radio stations--and the audience is still growing!
Winner of the Peabody, broadcasting's most prestigious award, Car Talk has been lauded by the media since its national premiere in 1987. Segments about Car Talk have appeared on 60 Minutes, 20/20, The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Today Show, and Martha Stewart Living, along with print features in the New York Times, Newsweek, Time, Smithsonian, USA Today, People, and Rolling Stone.
Car Talk is distributed by NPR via satellite and airs in every major market in the country. Car Talk also produces "Click and Clack Talk Cars," a nationally syndicated, twice-weekly newspaper column, distributed by King Features Syndicate and carried by 335 papers.
