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.

Dahl's radio show took an "every guy" approach to life in Chicago and Dahl often told 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.
In addition to his radio career, Dahl is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist.
