America's funniest auto mechanics take calls from weary car owners all over the country, and crack wise while they diagnose Dodges and dismiss Diahatsus. You don't have to know anything about cars to love this one hour weekly laugh fest.
Imagine the Marx Brothers answering questions about automobiles. Picture Monty Python trying to imitate car noises. Think of A.J. Foyt telling someone how to open the car hood. Mix it all up, throw in a little Dr. Ruth and a little Smothers Brothers, and you've got Car Talk, NPR's Peabody Award-winning radio program heard by more than 4 million listeners each week.
Every Saturday morning, despite the fact that it's Saturday morning, 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).
