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!

Ellen Asks Blake When He And Miranda Are Having Kids

Hot on the heels of the announcement that there's another Royal baby on the way (yes, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Price William are expecting baby number two), Ellen got right after Blake Shelton in this promo for his appearance on her show's season premiere  Monday, Sept. 8 (along with the other 'The Voice' judges), and asked if he'd be joining those ranks soon.

NFL Stars Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

When I was a kid growing up in Wisconsin, each Sunday we'd always watch the Packers. And back then, in the 70's and 80's, they were horrible! (Although after Thursday night's drubbing by the Seahawks, it doesn't appear much has changed...) So, whenever they did something boneheaded, or gave up a big play, we'd always yell at the TV. Today, though, we don't just yell at the TV-- we also put these same comments on Facebook and Twitter. And Jimmy Kimmel collected some of those meanest comments out there, and had the stars of the NFL read them on his show.

Luke Bryan Teaches Kid His Dance Moves On Stage

I was a drummer in junior high and high school, so you'd figure I might have enough rhythm to be able to dance, right? Wrong! I might be the world's worst dancer. What I needed was a guy like Luke Bryan to bring me up on stage and show me HIS moves-- kind of like he did to this young fan during one of his sold-out shows at Soldier Field in Chicago last weekend...

Just How Much ‘Stuff’ Will You Use In Your Lifetime?

Comedian George Carlin used to do a bit called, "A Place For Your Stuff," which parodied just how addicted were are to the stuff we all have.  If you've moved to a new residence lately, you're no doubt wondering how you got so much stuff. I got rid of an entire dumpster's worth of stuff before we moved to Rochester a few years ago. But perhaps this explains it: it's a look at all the 'stuff' we'll buy and use in our lifetime...

Partly Cloudy With A Chance Of ‘Will You Marry Me’

If you're married, did your husband go all out and make a big production out of his proposal? I proposed to my wife Christmas Eve at Rice Park in St. Paul. I think I kept things secret enough that it was a surprise for my wife (ok, girlfriend at the time), but outside of a couple of selfies in front of the huge Christmas tree, we don't have any video of my handiwork. Certainly not like THIS proposal!

Adam Levine Plays ‘Wheel Of Musical Impressions’ With Jimmy Fallon

One thing The Voice has going for it is the fact that all its judges are pretty decent musicians in their own right. We know Blake is the real deal, and so is Adam Levine. And, it turns out that in addition to being a pretty decent guitar player, drummer and vocalist, Adam can also do some pretty mean impressions!

First Day Of School Picture (We Don’t Have Kids)

Seeing that today is the first day of school for most students throughout southeastern Minnesota, my Facebook news feed has been filled with pictures of my friends' kids as they head off to another year of academic endeavors.  I didn't want to be left out of the fun, but seeing as my wife and I don't have kids, here's my First Day Of School 2014 picture.
