Car Talk's "As The Wrench Turns" Premieres this Weekend

My family is a huge fan of the NPR program Car Talk. So, I am stoked to see that they have an animated program featuring Click & Clack, the Tappet brothers.

Here's a summary from the website: Tom and Ray Magliozzi, the didactic duo whose voices grace the NPR airwaves on the ever-popular radio show Car Talk, have moved themselves into the world of animation with the all-new primetime series Click & Clack's As the Wrench Turns.

The program takes off from the hit NPR show and follows the on- and off-air escapades of Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers (alter-egos of Tom and Ray Magliozzi) as they try to fix cars, fend off disgruntled customers and seek out increasingly creative ways to goof off. Click & Clack's As the Wrench Turns is set at Car Talk Plaza, a fictional building that houses their radio studio and their famed garage in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

You'll have to check your local station for the schedule. Nashville's WNPT Channel 8 says it will be on this Saturday at 6 p.m. central but other stations have it tonight.

note: I got through about half of this show. I like the radio program better.
