For more than two decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers) have been America's funniest auto mechanics. By making more than 4 million weekly listeners* laugh, they have become the defining voices of public radio weekends. Their mixture of honesty, authenticity, knowledge, and humor has won them numerous awards (including a Peabody), accolades from every major national publication, and the loyalty of millions of public radio listeners, who continue to reward their stations with good will, listener hours, and fundraising dollars.
