Lake Effect Weekend: Steve Martin & Martin Short, Max Weinberg, Radio Chipstone, Ex Fabula

This weekend on Lake Effect:

In a star-studded edition of the show, we speak with Steve Martin and Martin Short about the energizing experience of performing with not just your comedic partner, but friend. Then E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg shares his memory of playing in Milwaukee 42 years ago, when a bomb scare temporarily sent the band back to the Pfister Hotel. Plus, we'll have the latest editions of Radio Chipstone and our storytelling series Ex Fabula.

  • Max Weinberg, musician
  • Wendy Schneider, director, Angels of Dirt; Gianofer Fields, material culture contributor
  • Leah DeLaney, Ex Fabula co-founder; Bruce Winter, WUWM
