About the hosts:
Tom and Ray Magliozzi, the Peabody Award-winning hosts, are better known as "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers" — taking their names from the clickety-clack sound made by aging autos. Tom and Ray dispense car advice in the broad accents of the tough East Cambridge neighborhood where they grew up. Both are graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1973, the brothers opened a do-it-yourself garage in Cambridge, Mass. "Hacker's Haven" provided rented space and tools for clients fixing their own cars. After being invited to discuss car repairs at NPR in 1977, the brothers were subsequently given their own weekly program, Car Talk.
Tom holds a doctorate in marketing and has taught at Boston and Suffolk Universities; he now runs his own consulting business. Ray is still at the Good News Garage. He has taught adult education automotive courses, worked for the Consumer Affairs Division of the state attorney general's office, and is a member of the National Car Care Council. The brothers also produce a highly successful newspaper column for King Features Syndicate, "Click and Clack Talk Cars," and an award-winning website, the Car Talk section of cars.com. Car Talk is heard by more than 4.3 million listeners each week on more than 600 public radio stations. "Click and Clack Talk Cars" appears in 335 newspapers. The website, the Car Talk section of cars.com, receives more than 400,000 unique visitors per week.
