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] Watch These Dogs React To ‘The Levitating Wiener’ Trick

Seeing as Halloween is only two weeks away, it's never too early for a little black magic, is it?  Well, there's nothing more magical than magician and mentalist Jose Ahonen's 'Levitating Wiener' trick. And, there's nothing more entertaining than watching how these dogs react to the 'ol levitating wiener trick! (I'm guessing my dog, Chance, would do what the last dog did...)

Rare North Carolina Shark Feeding Frenzy [Video]

It was just about a month ago that my wife and I spent about a week on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The house in which we were staying was in Corolla, North Carolina, and it literally was right on the ocean. Just a few steps out the back doors, and you were on the beach. Which is why this video caught my eye. This rare shark feeding frenzy -- almost right on the beach -- took place about 100 miles south of where we stayed!

Brad And Carrie’s “Back When” CMA Awards Promo [Video]

Seeing as today is another TBT (and, as an aside, are we still doing 'Throwback Thursdays'? I don't want to look out of touch, if we've already moved on to something  new, like 'Flashback Fridays'...), have you seen this promo Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood did for this November's CMA Awards?  It's pretty clever. They're reminiscing about how long they've hosted the awards -- and what it was like waaaay back in 2007 when they first hosted. (And don't miss the childhood pictures from the CMA performers too...)

Vikings’ Ponder Pays For Grieving Family’s Shopping Spree

He may not have been the most popular Viking in Minnesota, given how he and his team played against the Packers earlier this month, but there's no doubt about it: Christian Ponder is a good guy. And in a season where bad news seems to come out of the NFL too often, it's refreshing to see an NFL player making the news in a good way. So what exactly did Christian and his wife do?

Keith Olbermann’s Rant About Adrian Peterson

Keith Olbermann has been a commentator for various networks and channels for awhile now. But he got his start alongside Dan Patrick on ESPN's SportsCenter back in the 90's. So, he must be used to the, uh, "shenanigans" that some professional athletes have pulled over the years. Which is why he's saved plenty of vitriol for the Vikings own AP, and his less-than-smart actions as of late.

Taylor Swift’s Cat vs John Cleese’s Cat! [Video]

Pets are kind of like kids in that everyone thinks their own (pets and/or kids, that is) are the cutest things out there. And if you have pets, then you know that you don't just insult them to their owners' faces-- that's bad form. Unless, of course, you're a famous British comedian (and fellow pet-owner) like John Cleese and you're appearing on a well-known British TV talk show with the American singer. Watch how he "insults" Taylor's cat, Olivia-- and how Taylor reacts...
