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.

Professional reviews

"Listeners won't get "Car Talk's" signature "lousy car advice" from these selections of the NPR staple--in fact, they won't be getting much advice at all. The clips seem chosen more for their comedy value, and five go by before there's even a hint of useful information. The Magliozzi brothers spend a lot of time laughing at their own--and each other's--remarks. It's infectious laughter though, and listeners are likely to laugh along with them. The brothers are their funniest when intervening in the dating or familial relationships of their callers. Other topics include kids' views on marriage, bad-hair days, and practical jokes between the brothers. This is probably not the definitive collection, but fans will laugh out loud. J.A.S.
