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!

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings or Lions?

It's the third installment of Chance's Weekly Pigskin Picks, and so far my dog, Chance, has correctly predicted that the Vikings would beat the Falcons, and that the Packers would beat the Vikings.  That makes him 2-for-2. So, this week Chance is back to predict just who will be victorious as the Vikings get set to host the Lions in an NFC North match-up Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. So just who does Chance think is going to win?

The Price Is…Wrong. Way Wrong!

I've always heard that it's tougher to be on a TV game show than it appears to the rest of us watching at home. The lights, the camera, the audience all add pressure-- not to mention all those fabulous cash awards and prizes that are on the line, too. So maybe we should cut this guy a little slack, even though his bid on this hammock on The Price Is Right seems to be a little...off. Okay, it's WAAAAY off.

MnDOT’s New Winter Road Descriptions

Remember last year and the winter that would never quit? If you were like me, you were always checking MnDOT's 511 Traveler Information website or app to see what the roads were like. You'd see terms like "fair driving condition" or "good winter driving condition." But what did those terms really mean? That's why, starting this later year, you'll see all-new winter road descriptions on MnDOT's website and apps.

Why Can’t This Bride Stop Laughing?!? [VIDEO]

I guess I'm lucky. When my wife and I got married, it was on a beach in Jamaica in front of only a few witnesses. There wasn't much of an audience watching us recite our vows, compared to some weddings where there are literally hundreds of people in attendance. We were both fairly composed during our ceremony (I did get a little misty, come to think of it), but then again neither my wife nor I said our vows like THIS guy did...

A Lovely Day For A Run– And A Smoke?

Wednesday morning was a gorgeous, sunny and crisp morning here in Rochester, so I took the opportunity to hit the trail near our house and get in a quick 3-mile run. I encountered a few other people while I was huffing and puffing my way along the Cascade Trail to the Highway-52 overpass and back; not a bad contingent of folks, considering the temperature was 39-degrees when I headed out. But one fellow exerciser caught my attention-- because he was taking a smoke break on a bench along the path.

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!
