For three decades, Car Talk has entertained millions of public radio listeners. Brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi have been fixtures on Boise State Public Radio and regularly one of the most listened to hours each week on KBSX 91.5. Mixing automotive first-aid with roadside philosophy led the Car Guys to receive broadcasting’s most prestigious Peabody award.

Josh Ritter is singer-songwriter royalty and one of Idaho's most-gifted musical treasures. Nothing showcases his talent more than a solo acoustic performance.

So around the fifth anniversary of his Tiny Desk gem for NPR, we re-discover this newly remastered set. Ritter's impeccable use of dynamics and pure joy of performing shine through with brilliant results. Do yourself a favor and take the time to soak it all in.

Take a glimpse into a world you can’t see with Invisibilia, a new program on KBSX 91.5 about the unseen forces that shape human behavior -- ideas, beliefs, assumptions and thoughts.

The one-hour show, which takes its name from the Latin word meaning “all the invisible things,” is produced by NPR’s award-winning Science Desk. Listen to the show locally every Saturday at 3 p.m. starting Jan. 10 on KBSX 91.5 FM.

As most of you now know, Car Talk’s Tom Magliozzi passed away earlier this month from complications due to Alzheimer’s Disease. Tom and Ray, best known as "Click and Clack," have ruled the Saturday-morning airwaves across the country -- including here in Boise -- for more than two decades.

Starting Monday November 17, NPR and Boise State Public Radio's KBSX 91.5 FM are changing its newscast schedule in Morning Edition. You will want to make sure to watch your clock because some of the sounds that help guide your morning routine will be shifting just a bit.

NPR has been working with member stations like Boise State Public Radio over the past year to examine the best ways to improve our service. These clock changes are the result.
