Steve recaps his April Fools’ Day hosting gig prank on WBEZ. He tried in vain to kick Justin Kaufman out of the studio. Otherwise, he mostly enjoyed himself.
Today’s Dahlcast also features a trio of Floridiots, an MTV tragedy and a supermodel’s boyfriend/bodyguard that almost certainly got lucky last night.

Tom Thayer is back in Chicago to get ready for Bears offseason voluntary workouts. His pal Chris Berman carries an overstuffed wallet, much like Steve does. Steve’s is so big it makes sitting uncomfortable.
The Dahlcast today features a spoiled April Fool’s Day prank, wilding out on Michigan Avenue and the visually disturbing injury from the Louisville/Duke game.

|06/14/2012||00:00||Today’s show is full of helpful sex advice from our own version of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Steven Dahl, TLC/BDSM. If you are looking for some “adult” fun, Swedish or not, don’t head to a forest preserve and pull in backwards. Steve may have gotten ticks this way, allegedly, and he’s now is convinced that they are advancing through his nether regions. Ever wonder why you rarely see “Eggs Danny Thomas Style” on a menu? Well, after years of waiting Steve reveals the real story behind this not-for-brunch “dish”. And the act that is most commonly mistaken for this dish is really called a “Brickhouse”. It’s an important distinction to be aware of when ordering. Frank Sennett, editor-in-chief of Time Out Chicago, calls in to join Dr. Dahl in his sexual research. We learn what sex “Hot-lanta” style is, why Steve believes in the “Big Nose, Big Hose theory”, and how to buy the book “50 Shades of Gravy”. Frank also gives our listeners some good ideas on how to pick up chicks that may be just a little bit “hard-up”, so to speak. Are we sure today isn’t Hump Day? Nope, just another Thursday here in the DahlCast studios.||Steve Dahl, Groupon, Conan O'Brien, Frank Sennett, WCIU, softball, WBEZ, Kenny Loggins, Collective Soul, Danny Thomas, Fifty Shades of Gray, Jack Brickhouse, Marlo Thomas, Swedish sex bunkers|
|06/12/2012||00:00||Time to load the bases and knock it out of the park with another DahlCast. Today marks the beginning of the Kup Media League Softball series, with Steve and the Time Out Chicago team playing WBEZ. We talk to the WBEZ manager, Justin Kauffman, who apparently is quite the competitor. Steve can’t wait to pitch to this guy…after all “I’m Steve Dahl….I pitch”. Steve’s walkup song tonight is going to be the new song that Subwoofer turned us on to, “Call Me Maybe”. It’s just the kind of 14-year old girl song that Steve loves to dance to. Steve is going to fly to New York and pitch the first-ever DahlCast musical. Well, maybe he’ll just make it as far as the Western Springs community theater. In either case, Steve is a fine baritone and deserves to be the star pitcher in that production. The Dahl Family “Ace”, Janet, joins us today for another series of “Ask Janet”. She really can load the bases with some good advice for our listeners. She truly is a woman of many talents. It’s a beautiful summer day. Time to get out there and play ball!||Steve Dahl, Tony Awards, Frank Sennett, Janet Joliat Dahl, fellatio, Time Out Chicago, WBEZ, 16-inch softball, Big River, Cirque de Soleil, Justin Kaufman, musical theater, Roger Miller|
|04/17/2012||00:00||It’s Tax Day and we are discussing how your hard-earned money was spent by some of the fine, upstanding men of the secret service. Are they complete amateurs? Did they really get caught “pleying” because of one guy and $47? Even Hillary Clinton seems to have better party and guy code skills than these idiots. Between the GSA, the Secret Service and heads of state like Burlesconi, your dollars (pesos, etc.) just aren’t safe in the hands of any government today. Hope you got your tax refund early this year. Roe Conn is our guest today and he and Steve discuss the status of public radio in Chicago and Steve’s upcoming interview at WBEZ. Roe is a little hurt that Steve is cheating on him, but hopes that Steve can survive without the constant interruption of Traffic on the 5s. On the DahlCast today you get a full 2 hours of entertainment, not the 15 minutes per hour that radio offers. Spend your refund from the government on the Steve Dahl Network and watch your money actually work for you!||Steve Dahl, Roe Conn, Hillary Clinton, WLS, Brendan Greeley, NPR, WBEZ, Drew Peterson, Barack Obama, Steve Dahl Network, best podcast, 888-GOB-HOMO, Top rated podcast, Pete Zimmerman, Columbia, Secret Service, Shuttle Discovery|
|08/26/2011||00:00||Friday marked the 500th DahlCast! Things kicked off with a special treat bag from a listener and doughnuts from the Doughnut Vault. Pete recapped the CHIRP softball victory over WBEZ in irritating, sore-winner fashion. He brought the Kup's Cup, which he drank a Diet Coke out of. Buzz called in while poolside in New Buffalo. He was having some trouble enjoying Redamak's because of his Dr. Mercola Diet.||Steve Dahl, Buzz Kilman, New Buffalo, Redamak's, softball, WBEZ, 888-GOB-HOMO, CHIRP, Amanda Puck, 500, Curtis Granderson, Doughnut Vault, Stop 50|
|08/25/2011||09:38||Kevin Pang from the Chicago Tribune called in to tackle the ketchup-on-hot dog debate with Jim. Things never got too fiery though because Kevin is so affable. I tried to open Frank Sennett's eyes to the scam that is NPR syndicated programming. Then he recalled a time when he sent me his radio demo to play on the air. Ed Farmer called in to talk about the death of pitcher Mike Flanagan. Then he talked about how things are going with the White Sox.||Steve Dahl, ketchup, Adam Dunn, Frank Sennett, Kuma's Corner, Chicago White Sox, Ed Farmer, WNUR, Time Out Chicago, hot dogs, WBEZ, Chicago Tribune, 888-GOB-HOMO, CHIRP, Gene and Jude's, Kevin Pang, Mike Flanagan|
|08/23/2011||00:00||Pete discussed the CHIRP softball game against Gapers Block. Then I recapped my golf outing that went awry when I lost a club cover. Keith Van Horne called in to talk about last night's Bears at Giants game. Then he recalled his playing days under Coach. Pete pointed me to the Ryan Gosling crime fighter video. We also learned about Pete's man crushes.||Steve Dahl, Chicago Bears, Keith Van Horne, Mike Ditka, Dick Stanfel, softball, WBEZ, The Help, The Bachelor Pad, 888-GOB-HOMO, Ryan Gosling, CHIRP, Seinfeld, Bradley Cooper, Frasier, Gaper's Block, Jerry Leiber, Nick Ashford|
|08/22/2011||23:20||I kicked off Monday's DahlCast reading an article about a very tense WBEZ/Chicago Now softball game. Then Pete previewed tonight's CHIRP/Gaper's Block game. I recapped my progressive neighborhood dinner, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Then I talked to Tom Thayer about the team's trip to New York for tonight's game. I delved into the raging battle between Janet and myself over the filling of our swimming pool. Then I heard about Stephanie's roommate's wild birthday weekend.||Steve Dahl, Chicago Bears, Tom Thayer, Monday Night Football, Time Out Chicago, softball, WBEZ, Chicago Now, 888-GOB-HOMO, CHIRP|
