As a lifelong Chicagoan, I’ve been hearing the name Steve Dahl as long as I can remember. Known to most primarily for his Disco Demolition stunt which symbolically brought an end to the disco era, Dahl has been a popular radio voice for decades and more recently from his basement in podcast form. Chicago Magazine assigned me to shoot him at his new digs at WLS 890 AM, which was an interesting experience. I even got an on-air shoutout, although it was more of a complaint that I was distracting them by taking pictures. You can find the profile in this month’s issue, on newsstands now.
Thanks to Steve for his cooperation, WLS management for letting us sprawl out in the green room, Joe Becerra for assisting and Jacqueline Cantu for assigning.
