Car Talk

Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9 a.m.

Tom and Ray Magliozzi

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's website, the Car Talk section of cars.com, receives more than 400,000 unique visitors each week and has been hailed by Hotwired, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, PC Week, Wired, USA Today, and Yahoo!

Tom and Ray's most recent books are In Our Humble Opinion and A Haircut in Horsetown and Other Great Car Talk Puzzlers, both published by Penguin Putnam. Their most recent audio collections are Born Not to Run: More Disrespectful Car Songs, The Hatchback of Notre Dame: More Car Talk Classics, and Car Talk Car Tunes: The Car Talk Compendium of Disrespectful Car Songs, Volume 1
