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!

[video] See The Most Terrifying Amusement Park Ride Yet!

Are you afraid of heights?  I'm not so much afraid of heights as I am afraid of edges. When my wife and I were at the Grand Canyon earlier this year, hiking the winding trails - without guardrails - down into the canyon didn't bother me too much. But this new ride, where you completely free fall for 100 feet at speeds nearing 55 mph, might cause me to just stay on the ground!

What’s That On The Weather Radar? Bugs!!

I was doing some reading Sunday night and I happened check Facebook when I saw a post from a friend of mine in La Crosse, WI. He had posted a screen grab of the weather radar and what appeared to be a line of showers along the Mississippi River-- except the image wasn't of rain, it was actually of tons of mayflies that had just hatched!

[video] Fox Eats A GoPro Camera?

We've all heard how foxes are pretty smart, haven't we?  Well, judging by this video, I'm not sure how smart this fox is, but he's apparently pretty hungry. It's either that, or he REALLY didn't want anybody to shoot any video of him in his native Alaska (which is where this photographer was, taking pictures of wildlife with a group from the University of Alaska-Anchorage. He saw the fox come along and set down his GoPro camera.)

The Ice Cream Sandwich That Won’t Melt?

During the summer months, I confess that I have a weakness for ice cream, or more specifically, frozen yogurt (which sure seems like ice cream to me).  I probably have a bowl after dinner 2 or 3 times a week. And, I tend to like my frozen yogurt fairly soft, so it doesn't completely numb the inside of my mouth when I eat it. I even pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds, just to soften it up before I dish up a bowl. So, even though it's an ice cream sandwich, I'm not sure I'd want to down one of these ice cream sandwiches... that won't melt!

How NOT To Train For A 5K

Ever noticed how many different runs there are these days?  There are Color Runs, Color Dashes, 5K's, Half Marathons and all sorts of other races, usually raising money for a good cause. I have yet to run in one-- except for this weekend, when I'll be hoofing it in the Bacon Chase 5K in Minneapolis. Yes, that's the race where you get all the bacon you can eat at the finish line!

Check out this clip, where he makes a little girl's day but serenading her-- on-stage by singing her a song he was originally going to dedicate to his own daughters...
