Curt St. John

Hey, it's Curt St. John here, and I'm excited to join the Quick Country 96.5 staff! Growing up, being on the radio is all I ever dreamed of doing. And, after a stint that required me to wear a bear suit to be the mascot for an AM station that aired Chicago Cubs games in my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, I finally DID end up on the radio, working weekends and overnights while I earned a BA from UW-Eau Claire. I next worked several radio jobs in Eau Claire, including hosting a morning show for about 15 years. (That's a lot of getting up at 3:20 am!) After I met my beautiful wife, we got married (in Jamaica) and moved here to Rochester, where my wife was already working, in April of 2012. In my spare time, I like to get out on the mountain bike, catch ‘House Hunters’ on TV and work on our next batch of home-brewed beer. And, now that I'm here in Minnesota, I'm an avid Twins and Wild fan-- although I do confess to still rooting for certain MLB, NFL, and Big 10 teams that hail from a state just east of here. I'm excited to keep you company in the afternoon and play the most continuous country on your way home!

Weird Things Couples Do When They’re Sick

Even though it's supposed to be near 70 degrees here in southeastern Minnesota later today and tomorrow, we're still nearing the start of the cold and flu season, believe or not. And, given how long our winters can be, it's likely either you or your spouse might come down with the sniffles at some point. Do any of these behaviors look familiar to you? (The "I'm not getting sick, it's just allergies!" line sounds eerily like something I'd say...)

Goldy Gopher (And All The Big 10 Mascots) ‘Shake It Off’ Parody

Not only is our own U of M mascot, Goldy Gopher, the defending UCA Mascot National Champion, he's also quite the video star. Back in 2012, Goldy, along with the rest of the Big 10 mascots, starred in a video set to Carly Rae Jepson's song, Call Me Maybe. This year, Goldy and the gang got back together to shoot a video set to Taylor Swift's latest single, Shake It Off. And it's pretty cool!

[video] Carl Lewis’ National Anthem Fail

Trisha Yearwood was on-hand Tuesday night in Kansas City to sing the national anthem before Game 1 of the 2014 World Series. She did a fine job, which is no surprise-- she's a great singer. But because the melody of the national anthem has such a wide range, it can sometimes be a challenge for even the best singers.  And when a singer happens to make a mistake while singing the anthem, it can be painful to watch. Like when Carl Lewis-- yes, the Olympic athlete, who's definitely NOT a good singer-- *tried* to sing it before an NBA game back in 1993...

[video] Epic Win: The Price Is REALLY Right!

Talk about lucky! I've never been on a game show, but if I was, I hope I'd have even a little bit of this guy's luck-- and, maybe his dancing skills, too. While this contestant on The Price Is Right is busy saying hello to his daughter, wife and family, his first spin lands on the coveted 1.00 spot-- which means he automatically wins an extra $1,000. But wait-- there's more!

So, I Shouldn’t Give A Police Officer A ‘Wet Willie’?

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up. There's a story about a guy in Mankato who, after having had a beverage or two last weekend (okay, a few more than that-- the story says his blood alcohol content was almost twice the legal limit), went up to a police officer at bar closing time, and proceeded to give him a 'wet willie.' As you might guess, things didn't go well after that.

The Ultimate Bad Parking Job! [Video]

This past weekend we were at my wife's nephew's wedding reception in St. Paul. He and his bride couldn't have been happier, the venue was gorgeous, and we had a fun time. Well, except for navigating the hotel parking ramp, that is. It was apparently very old -- when cars were much lower to the ground. The ceilings were so low I thought we would scrape the concrete a couple of times.  At least we did finally find a parking spot -- and it wasn't next to THIS driver!

[video] Watch These Dogs React To ‘The Levitating Wiener’ Trick

Seeing as Halloween is only two weeks away, it's never too early for a little black magic, is it?  Well, there's nothing more magical than magician and mentalist Jose Ahonen's 'Levitating Wiener' trick. And, there's nothing more entertaining than watching how these dogs react to the 'ol levitating wiener trick! (I'm guessing my dog, Chance, would do what the last dog did...)
