NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) today announced that beginning November 23, it will air three back-to-back daily episodes from the 25 year collection of  Car Talk— the hilarious, uninhibited, thoroughly unrehearsed show hosted by Tom and Ray Magliozzi, aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers—weekdays on its SiriusXM Public Radio channel.

To celebrate the expansion of this beloved show to its daily lineup, SiriusXM will air a Thanksgiving Day  Car Talk marathon on SiriusXM Public Radio beginning November 22 at 9:00 am ET until November 23 at 5:00 am ET featuring favorite shows such as Tom and Ray's special Thanksgiving Show.

Beginning November 23,  Car Talk will air Monday – Friday from 3:00 – 6:00 pm ET and 9:00 pmmidnight ET on SiriusXM Public Radio, XM channel 121 and Sirius channel 205 with Sirius Premier, giving drivers nationwide the opportunity to ride home every afternoon with Car Talk. SiriusXM will also air  Car Talk on Saturdays 7:00 – 8:00 am and 1:00 – 2:00 pm and Sundays from 6:00 – 7:00 am, 12:00 – 1:00 pm and midnight – 1:00 am (all times ET) on SiriusXM Public Radio.  Car  Talk will continue to air on SiriusXM's NPR Now channel 122 on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 – 11:00 am ET.

" Car Talk's Tom and Ray Magliozzi are in the winner's circle of radio hosts; their program has been a hit for 25 years now, and we want to give our listeners much more than just one hour a week of these guys.  A three-hour, daily block of Car Talk is the perfect daily drive-home companion after work," said Jeremy Coleman, Senior Vice President, Talk and Entertainment Programming, SiriusXM. "Now, SiriusXM Public Radio listeners can enjoy Bob Edwards each morning and Car Talk each afternoon, to learn and laugh every day."

Winners of the Peabody Award in broadcasting and graduates of MIT, the Magliozzi brothers have been handing out advice since 1977 on everything from car repair to marriage repair to millions of diehard fans across the country. After they opened a do-it-yourself auto repair shop in Cambridge, MA and found themselves doing all the actual repairs, Tom and Ray began dispensing car repair information on local radio and have been heard weekends on NPR since 1987. Listeners of all ages nationwide have since turned to Click and Clack for advice about cars, love, marriage, grammar, bad hair, garage etiquette, the meaning of life and more.

SiriusXM Public Radio is home to  The Bob Edwards Show , the daily show hosted by the award-winning journalist on which he interviews the most interesting personalities of our times in his unique, thoughtful thorough and probing style.
