Car Talk Ends Thirty Year Run

Sep 8, 2017

National distribution for the Best of Car Talk will end this fall. For nearly three decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers) have been America's funniest auto mechanics.

By making millions of listeners laugh, they were the defining voices of public radio weekends. Their mixture of honesty, authenticity, knowledge, and humor won them numerous awards (including a Peabody), accolades from every major national publication, and the loyalty of millions of public radio listeners.

Wyoming Public Radio has been bringing you this signature program since the beginning and the Best of Car Talk since the passing of Tom Magliozzi in 2014. Car Talk is celebrating this incredible run with shows that highlight themes that have developed over the years.

  • September 9: Relationship Calls
  • September 16: Family Calls
  • September 23: Wacko Hall of Fame
  • September 30: Final Fund Drive show
  • October 7: All-time Best Moments

Here is a “farewell” letter from Ray for Car Talk fans.

Beginning October 14, Wyoming Public Radio will be bringing you an extra hour of Weekend Edition Saturday. This is in response to accelerated news cycles and global events that occur on a daily basis.

For future programming, we are considering development and production of new local Wyoming programs along with other potential national programs. Let us know if you have a favorite public radio program that is not currently on Wyoming Public Radio. Thanks for listening and thank you for your support of Wyoming Public Radio.
