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!

And we also find ways to amuse ourselves by illustrating just how cold our weather is. Like putting a banana outside and then seeing if you can pound a nail with it...

Rochester’s Falling Gas Prices: They’re Practically Giving It Away

It was only a little over a year and a half ago, in the spring of 2013, when gas prices here in southeastern Minnesota were hovering near the $4.25 a gallon mark. Thankfully, those days are gone, and as everyone has noted, just about everywhere in Rochester today you can fill up the family truckster for under $2 a gallon!
