Car Talk celebrates two decades of life affirming mediocrity.

That's right. Car Talk, the single lousiest show on NPR, is now also one of the longest-running.

While NPR executives are sobbing into their tote bags, Car Talk will be having a party. It's our 20th Anniversary Tune-Up.

Now, we know that most normal people will quietly wish us well, or express surprise that we're still on the air. But we also know that there are a handful of wackos who will want to be in Harvard Square for the celebration.

So, for those few, those proud, those with no other social lives, here are the details:


Saturday, June 16, 2007, from 6 P.M. - 10 P.M.


Charles Hotel Courtyard in Harvard Square, Cambridge (Our Fair City), MA.


The Blue Suede Boppers


Tom and Ray Magliozzi, aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers.


Restaurants of Our Fair City.


$60 contribution to Tom and Ray's long-suffering "home" NPR station, WBUR.

Order tickets online or call WBUR at 1-800-909-9287.


Hoping we don't get cancelled before June 16th,

Tom and Ray Magliozzi
Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers



Want more party? Good news! For those looking for a special experience, Food for Free a worthy local non-profit here in Our Fair City is hosting a special pre-party reception for us. Food for Free rescues fresh food that would otherwise go to waste, and distributes it to those in need. They're great folks, and we hope you can join us in supporting them. For more information contact our pal Michelle at development@foodforfree.org.
