Did you know, according to Statista, there are more than 250 million vehicles in the United States? And why not? This great country is responsible for more milestones in automobiles than any other. It was Michigan’s Henry Ford who first implemented the assembly line into auto manufacturing, forever changing the way cars were produced.
It is not just our contribution to their ubiquity that we need be proud of. Chevy came up with the Corvette, Ford the Mustang, and Dodge the Charger. We gave birth to the concept of muscle cars that has taken the world by storm. While auto manufacturing may have moved elsewhere, and the age of muscle cars continues to be threatened by environmentalist kill-joys, the fact is America is every bit a car loving country as it ever was.
It is not surprising, then, that so many of us want to be able to eat, drink, and sleep cars. Unfortunately, the economy being what it is makes it difficult for us to enjoy every machine as we would like to. Fortunately, there are quality sources of car show radio out there that help us to keep what we have going, while also allowing us to live vicariously through their adventures.
Jerry Reynolds and Kevin McCarthy, 35 year veterans of the car industry, created and operate Car Pro. Their mission statement is simple; they want to make sure every one of their listeners is educated about cars. Whether they are discussing hybrids or sports cars, you can rely on Car Pro to give you the information you need for repairs, a sale, or an educated purchase. Those things combined make Car Pro one of the best radio car shows on the air.
The Car Counselor
The Car Counselor is among the best automotive radio shows for two reasons. Firstly, they give their listeners a huge amount of information on a wide variety of auto-related subjects. For instance, they guide their listeners to high quality auto shops and dealers, while giving them heart-felt, honest reviews of new and used cars.
Of all car show radio programs, The Car Counselor is the best at integrating their radio program with the web. Not only can fans listen to the hosts’, John, Jim, and Lynn’s, past shows, but they can also read blog posts about the good and bad in the auto industry. The team recently featured a preview of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray. As any car fan can tell you, the return of the Stingray has been a long time coming.
The Car Talk Radio Show
It is difficult to talk about car show radio and not talk about Car Talk. Starting in 1977 and ending in 2012, Car Talk was unarguably the most popular car show radio program in the United States. Click and Clack, known in real life as Tom and Ray, made the decision to retire in the summer of 2012. However, that does not mean their Peabody Award winning program cannot still be heard in syndication on National Public Radio.
Regardless of the kind of cars you like, these high quality car show radio programs are a real treat for any car lover. While their radio shows are limited to certain geographic areas, all three offer their podcasts online, so you can listen as you go. What could be better?
