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!

Parrot Does Best Matthew McConaughey Impression Ever!

I've always loved comedians who do impressions, and I've always wished I had the talent to be able to do a few myself. Well, I can do an okay version of Bill Clinton, but he's been out of office now for, what, 13 years?  I've also always been an animal lover, too. So imagine how excited I was when I found this video of Einstein the parrot, who can do a pretty good impression of Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey...

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings vs Bears

In case you haven't been following along, my dog, Chance, has been predicting how the Vikings will do each week. After really stubbing his paw last week (by picking the Bears to beat the Packers-- hey, they only lost 55-14!) his record is now at 4-3, and he's looking to get back on the winning side this week as the Vikings head to the Windy City to take on those same floundering Bears. So who does he think will win?

That’s A Good Boy: Dog Balances How Many Treats On His Nose?!?

So, my dog, Chance, is hovering right around the .500 mark when it comes to predicting who's going to win the Vikings game every week. Not a bad record, really, but it's nothing compared to THIS dog. Check out how he balances not one or two or even three treats on his nose, but actually sets a world record for balancing 50 treats on his nose at one time!  Now THAT'S a good boy!

Check Out Darth Vader’s Original Voice!

Seeing as I make a living using my voice, I've always been fascinated by those behind-the-scenes stories about how various voices (and/or actors) were chosen for the part that ended up making them famous. Like this story of how James Earl Jones ended up as the voice of Star Wars' Darth Vader. But do you know what the character's "original" voice sounded like?

13 In A Row: Blake Breaks His Own Record For #1 Songs…Again!

In case you weren't watching The Voice on Monday (where Carson Daly made the announcement on live TV), in addition to winning his fifth consecutive CMA Award for Male Vocalist of the Year last week, Blake Shelton also just broke his own record, as "Neon Light" earlier this week became his 13th No. 1 single in a row!  That's quite a string of No. 1 hits. But can you remember which Blake song started his streak of No. 1 hits?

Pat Sajak Finally Loses It On ‘Wheel’

We've all seen those videos of people on Wheel Of Fortune making really bad guesses. The correct answer seems so simple to us watching at home, even if it IS tougher than it looks when one is playing the game, under the lights, live in the studio. Pat Sajak, longtime host of 'Wheel,' always seems to take those almost-ridiculous guesses in stride, calmly saying something like, "Not quite!" while trying not to make the contestant feel bad. Until this time, when Pat just can't quite take all those lousy guesses any longer...

A Patriotic SaluteTo Our Soldiers, Past And Present

On this cold, snowy Veterans Day, I'd like to pause a moment acknowledge all veterans. My dad served in the Army in Vietnam, and I have several friends who've also worn the uniform of our country. We don't often stop and thank them for all they've done. One doesn't join the military to become rich, or to seek fame or fortune. But they do it anyway-- and I'm extremely thankful for their sacrifice. Thank you for your service!
