#0607: One Brother Too Many?

Original Air Date: 02.18.2006

   Best Moment

Does the world really need a Click AND a Clack? Tom and Ray mull over a listener’s request for a 50% reduction in Magliozzis - but who should get the ax? Becky wants to park her Miata on the other side of the garage – but she’ll have to find a place for all her husband’s redneck gear first. (Anyone want a set of caribou horns?) Jim’s ‘96 Cadillac sounds like a sick cow when it starts. He's looking for a cure for the chronic Caddy cough. Plus, is Rob’s child-safe door shut for good? This, and more.
