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!

Californians Try Five Minnesota Foods For The First Time

A few days ago, I posted a video that showed some of our fellow Americans (not from around here) trying some "Midwest" foods. It was okay, but outside of tater-tot hot dish, it didn't feature too many of our uniquely Minnesota foods. This video, however, changes that. Whether it's Jello salad, lutefisk, a Juicy Lucy or a Nut Goodie Bar, the reactions of these Californians as they try some of our Minnesota foods for the first time is pretty funny!

Another Reason I’m Glad I Live In Southeastern Minnesota

Getting our first snow of the season on Veteran's Day, November 11th, sure seemed a little early, if you ask me-- about a month early! Plus, Mother Nature's continued icy grip has set records for the lowest high temperature here in Rochester the past two days, as well. But after seeing the weather residents of western New York state are dealing with yesterday and today, I'll take our weather here in southeastern Minnesota!

What Can’t You Pronounce? For This Guy, It’s Worcestershire Sauce

Every have a name or phrase you just can't pronounce, no matter how hard you try? For me, former American Idol contestant Josh Gracin is one I always screw up. I just can't get my mouth to make the "sh" sound in Josh followed by the "sss" sound in Gracin. For the guy in this video, though, it's Worcestershire sauce he can't say. (Which, granted, is a tricky one-- even if you don't have an Italian accent, like he does!)

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!
