Best Of Car Talk

Schedule
88.5-1
Saturday
10:00 am

Every Saturday morning, despite the fact that it's a weekend, Tom and Ray Magliozzi turn on their microphones and belt out the best advice they can offer for your automobile. Not that you'd necessarily want to take it but — hey! You're up anyway so why not?

Car Talk just might be the best thing to hit radio on Saturday mornings since the air bag was invented (some might say they're actually one-in-the-same) and you can hear it every morning on WAMU 88.5 FM. If you miss it (heaven forbid!) you can listen to the show online at the Car Talk website.
