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!

A 4th Of July Staycation In Southeastern Minnesota

How was your 4th of July weekend? Instead of packing up the SUV and heading up north to the cabin my wife's family owns in Willow River this past weekend, we decided to stay close to home here in Rochester and still take in a few recreational things we've been wanting to do, but just hadn't yet found time to do.

Hey — Where Did Your Pool Go? Amazing Hidden Swimming Pools In Action!

Some friends of ours always have a big pool party every summer. Their backyard is big enough for the pool, a patio area yet still has some green space.  Every time I mow the lawn in our backyard, I wonder if our yard would be big enough to have a pool. (Okay, first our checking account would need to be big enough for us to afford to put in a pool, but still...) I always thought a pool might take up too much space. But that was before I saw this video.

Heading Out Of Town For The 4th? Watch 10 Easy Packing Hacks!

While the price of gasoline might be a bit higher than last summer, AAA-Minnesota still estimates nearly 41-million of us will be hitting the highways this weekend.

But if you're doing some travelling this weekend, fitting everything into a bag or suitcase can sometimes be a challenge. So, check out these handy tips to make packing much easier. And have a great holiday weekend!

29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song!

I've always loved celebrity impressions, from Rich Little's impression of Richard Nixon, George Burns and others in the 70's and 80's, to Dana Carvey's George H.W. Bush in the 90's, and Frank Caliendo's current-day impressions of John Madden and George W. Bush. I can even do a now-outdated poor version of President Clinton (then again, who can't?) Which is why I found this video, that's making the rounds on the Interwebs today, pretty funny.

So THAT’S Why Robin Williams Was Spotted In Minnesota

The Interwebs were abuzz yesterday when a local photo surfaced of Robin Williams hanging out at a Dairy Queen in Lindstrom, Minnesota. According to one report, the legendary actor and comedian apparently ordered a small vanilla cone. Seeing that a famous Hollywood celebrity most likely didn't travel to Minnesota just to get an ice cream cone, we now know WHY he's been spotted in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

World’s Largest Airplane Is Here In Minnesota?

It's as big the length of a football field-- that's longer than two Boeing 737's. It has a wingspan of 225 feet and can carry up to 550,000 pounds, which is the equivalent of three fully-loaded Boeing 737's. What is it? It's the The Antonov AN-225 Mriya, a Ukranian-built cargo plane, and it's sitting at the Minneapolis airport right now.

Tim Taylor Would Be Proud: Gas Dryer Repaired!

It was over the weekend when my wife and I both noticed that our clothes dryer didn't seem to be working correctly. It first took a LONG time for a load of clothes to dry, and then after that, we noticed that another load wasn't dry at all-- it had basically tumbled around for 30 minutes, without any heat. Uh-oh. It sounded like another expensive repair-- until my wife did a little research online, that is, and found a video that allowed us to repair the dryer ourselves!
