Chi-Town Squares (and Michael Maltenfort) on the radio
NPR recently did an All Things Considered story on Chi-Town Squares and the straight dancers who have started showing up at their dances. Here’s the NPR blurb:
If you live in the Chicago area and you are interested in square-dancing
, there are many clubs you might join. When commentator Angeli Primlani wants to go dancing, she hooks up with a club called the Chi-Town Squares. The members are mostly gay men, but recently, groups of older straight couples from the suburbs have started showing up at their dances.

From the story, I gathered that the commentator, Angeli Primlani, got hooked into square dancing (and Chi-Town) by Michael Maltenfort, a dancer and caller for Chi-Town. You can hear Michael calling in the audio of the NPR clip.
