Hey look who’s on Check, Please! this week. It’s Steve Dahl, former radio personality and now podcaster! Much younger viewers may not be familiar with the witty Steve Dahl but he is one of the most well known ‘shock jocks’ in Chicago radio history. For many our WTTW staff, it was a real treat to see him walking through our halls for the taping of the show. Regardless of our careers in media, we still get excited when we have someone ‘famous’ in the house.

To Sauce or Not to Sauce…

When most people think of really good barbeque, they don’t first think of Chicago. Our thoughts tend to go to the southern part of the country. This week on Check, Please! reviewer Zach Moore tells us you don’t have to make a road-trip for great barbeque. You can find it right here on the Gold Coast at Chicago q. But, our guests had mixed reviews of Chicago q, which ultimately came down to the sauce.

Starting off right!
