Car Talk launched as a local show on WBUR in Boston back in 1977, hosted by Tom and Ray Magliozzi, also known as Click and Clack. In 1987 the show went national and was a huge success for NPR.
Tom died 7 years ago. Ray joined WBUR to talk about his late brother and the success of the program.
The past Saturday The Best of Car Talk aired for the final time.
