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!

Talk About Feeling Disconnected: I Left My Phone At Home

If you're like me, you find yourself always double-checking your pockets to make sure your wallet and car keys are still there.  Call it a nervous habit. These days, I'm also always double-checking to make sure my phone is somewhere around me too.  Also a nervous habit. Not an effective one, apparently, because I left our house earlier today without my iPhone. D'oh!

Jimmy Fallon’s “Ew!” Video

Jimmy Fallon's alter-ego, Sara, has been a recurring character on The Tonight Show. (She once did a video with a certain country star whose initials are T.S.) And, in most of the skits, 'Sara' hosts a YouTube show called "Ew!".  Well, this time, Sara is back, with her friend, Mir-i-am, to debut the video for "Ew!" I'm guessing if you have teenage daughters, this might look and sound a little too familiar...

Mike Rowe Is Back On TV This Week, With ‘Sombody’s Gotta Do It’

I've been a fan of Mike Rowe for almost 10 years now. He's the guy who used to host the show 'Dirty Jobs' on Discovery, until the show was cancelled several years ago. You might have heard him as the guy who does the narration for the show 'Deadliest Catch,' as well has having appeared in commercials for Ford trucks. He's also a really funny guy. And, he's back with a new show, debuting this Wednesday on CNN called, 'Somebody's Gotta Do It.' It looks pretty good. Check out the official trailer for the show...

Chance Perfect In Pigskin Picks– So Far

You know how some animals can sense when danger is afoot and then warn their owners before a fire breaks out? Or how some other animals can sniff out serious illnesses before they develop?  I don't know about those, but I do know my dog, Chance, can sense who's going to be the winner of the Vikings game each week-- and with Wednesday's pick, he's now 2-for-2!

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings or Packers?

Here's our second installment of my dog, Chance, and his weekly Pigskin Picks. (He predicts who's going to win the Vikings game each week, merely by eating a treat.) Last week, Chance picked they Vikings to beat the Falcons -- and they did!  This week, though, it's a little tougher, seeing as both Chance and I are Wisconsinites and fans of the Green and Gold team from Green Bay.  So just who does Chance think is going to win Thursday night's game? Take a look...

19 Photos You’ll Find Weirdly Pleasing

Everybody has some form of mild OCD, it seems. I find myself straightening our area rug so it's perfectly even with the door frame before I leave the house. If I'm doing laundry, I like to make sure the towels are all folded consistently the same way so they line up properly in the closet. And don't get me started on how many times each day I find myself adjusting the microphone here in the Quick Country studio!  If you have a few mild OCD-isms, you'll love these pictures...

That’s A Wrap: Garden Produce Over For 2014

How does that say go, "All good things must end"?  That's pretty much the case for the produce from our garden this year, when I picked the last two offerings from the zucchini plant the other day. Outside of a few tomatoes the critters have already attacked, there's not much left to this year's harvest. How did your garden do this year?
