Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Click and Clack, the Boston brothers Magliozzi behind the NPR show Car Talk (aired weekly on 90.1 KERA-FM), are the subjects of As The Wrench Turns, PBS' first-ever animated prime-time series, which is set to premiere on July 9. Sure. Why not? That's kind of cool.

But, um, the local angle?

Ah: The theme song for the show comes courtesy of Denton's own Grammy-winning polka-rockers, Brave Combo. It's the band's take on "The William Tell Overture." Check it out:

Brave Combo's music, as well as other scores from band leader Carl Finch, will also serve as the soundtrack for the show. Pretty phenomenal pairing if you ask me. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
