Car Talk: 25 Years of Lousy Car Advice

Ray Magliozzi and Tom Magliozzi, read by authors. Highbridge Audio, unabridged, two CDs, 2 hrs., $22.95 ISBN 978-1-62231-120-0
This collection of humorous but disjointed excerpts from NPR’s long-running Car Talk series will appeal to longtime fans of the show and listeners new to the offbeat automotive advice of radio hosts “Click and Clack.” This audiobook focuses less on the Magliozzi brothers’ often amazing automotive diagnoses and more on the their crazier radio moments—e.g., when a daughter calls asking for her father’s forgiveness for lying about a car she wrecked years ago or when Tom and Ray receive a call from an astronaut in space. While listeners may not get any practical car advice, they’ll love the banter and goofiness of the show’s hosts. (Jan.)
