Steven Robert Dahl (born November 20, 1954 in Pasadena, California) is an American radio personality and humorist. He is the owner and operator of the Steve Dahl Network, or SDN, a subscription-based podcasting network as well as the host of The Steve Dahl Show which airs weekdays on WLS-AM.
Originally, Dahl broadcast with Detroit stations WABX and WWWW and later with Chicago stations WCKG, WDAI, WLUP, WMVP and WLS. He also served as a columnist for the Chicago Tribune in their Live section as the resident "vice advisor" until November 2010. Additionally, Dahl has served on the Board of Trustees at Columbia College Chicago.
Dahl's radio show takes an "every guy" approach to life in Chicago and Dahl often tells bucolic stories about his life and family on the air. Dahl is also well known in Chicago for his song parodies and his impressions. He is considered a pioneer in talk radio and has been influential for many other radio personalities. He gained a measure of national attention after the Disco Demolition Night promotion at Comiskey Park, and he is also known in Chicago for his longstanding former role as one half of the "Steve and Garry" team (with Garry Meier).
In addition to his radio career, Dahl is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. His band, Teenage Radiation, recorded and performed a number of song parodies (which he often played on his show throughout the 1980s) and since 1990 he has performed and recorded as Steve Dahl and the Dahlfins. Dahl has also dabbled in acting, appearing in the 1984 cult classic, Grandview, U.S.A. with John and Joan Cusack. He also appeared in the 2004 film Outing Riley, and in the 2006 indie comedy I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With (which was written and directed by Chicago native Jeff Garlin).
Dahl grew up in La Cañada, California, a Los Angeles suburb northwest of Pasadena. He is the son of Roger and Carolyn Dahl, an electronics parts manufacturer's representative and a homemaker.

Oh. my, Steve Dahl is so hilarious!!! I'm a dumb-hick who grew up in northeast Nebraska. He is even more funny than Todd & Tyler from Z-92 in Omaha. And the other guys on the show are even more funny!!! I once tried to read the Wall Street Journal, but it was so smart, my head hurt.
