NPR's Car Talk Celebrates "10 Years of Bad Car Advice" with a Salute to Famous Brothers
Thousands Join the Celebration at Parties Throughout the Country


What: NPR's wildly popular program Car Talk celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special live performance in Boston. Hosts Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers") and an audience of thousands will celebrate with a salute to famous brothers. Among the scheduled guests are the Flying Karamazov Brothers and Dr. Joyce Brothers.

Joining the celebration via satellite will be audiences from across the nation. More than 70 NPR member stations will sponsor simultaneous local parties, each featuring a video simulcast of the performance in Boston.

When: Saturday, June 20 from 8:30 to 11:00 pm (Eastern)

Where: Harborlights Pavilion on the waterfront in Boston.

Winner of a 1992 Peabody Award, NPR's Car Talk is a hilarious, fast-paced call-in program that takes the fear out of car repair. Each week, nearly 3 million listeners tune in to the inspired mayhem of the Magliozzi brothers on 460 NPR member stations nationwide.
