Farewell, Click and Clack...

Richard Howard

Irritable ignition? AC on the fritz? Troublesome tire treads?

If you’ve ever encountered any of these problems with your car, chances are that Tom and Ray Magliozzi encountered them as well.

In their distinct Boston accents, the brothers and long-time hosts of Car Talk shared their thoughts and advice with public radio listeners from across the country.

Car Talk began broadcasting on NHPR in 1989, providing New Hampshire listeners with automotive tips, laughs, unexpected moments and fond memories.

For the past five years, following Ray’s retirement and Tom’s sad passing in November 2014, NPR produced the Best of Car Talk. As NPR ends production of the popular series, NHPR will air its final Best of Car Talk program on Saturday, August 26, at 10:00 a.m.  We encourage you to listen in one last time before this Peabody Award-winning program drives off into the sunset.  

Farewell, Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers. It’s been our pleasure…
