Car Talk




Car Talk
 1992 | WBUR Radio, Boston, Massachusetts, National Public Radio, Washington, DC

Perhaps more appropriately named “Zen and the Art of Automobile Maintenance,” this entertaining and informative show takes us simultaneously under the hood and into the mind of its vast listening audience. Each week, master mechanics Tom and Ray Magliozzi provide useful information about preserving and protecting our cars. But the real core of this program is what it tells us about human mechanics. It teaches us that we all need to change our oil regularly, flush our cooling system, and keep our wheels in balance. The insight and laughter provided by Messrs. Magliozzi, in conjunction with their producer Doug Berman, provide a weekly mental tune-up for a vast and ever-growing public radio audience. To “Click,” “Clack,” and the pit crew and Car Talk, a Peabody Award.
