Celebrating 35 Years of Car Talk
An NPR Interview with Click & Clack
It’s hard to believe that Car Talk has been on WBUR for 35 years and on NPR for 25 years -- but it’s true! A decade before it became a national hit on NPR, the Tappet Brothers’ unique blend of automotive savvy and sibling yuks was taking the WBUR’s Boston airwaves by storm.
On May 3, 1971, at 5 p.m., All Things Considered debuted on 90 public radio stations.
In the 40 years since, almost everything about the program has changed, from the hosts, producers, editors and reporters to the length of the program, the equipment used and even the audience.
However there is one thing that remains the same: each show consists of the biggest stories of the day, thoughtful commentaries, insightful features on the quirky and the mainstream in arts and life, music and entertainment, all brought alive through sound.
