WIZZARD MEDIA // $2.99  Steve Dahl’s website features a blog, a podcast, a Twitter feed, a link to his Chicago Tribune column, and, of course, a store. Now he’s got the Steve Dahl Show app, through which he pipes a weekday podcast. Each podcast includes a brief description of the content (the day’s guests and usually a past Dahl radio triumph of some sort). Not much else offered—unless you want wallpaper of Dahl’s logo for your iPhone.
