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!

Did This Guy Say A Naughty Word After Wolves Drafted Him?

When it comes to NBA powerhouses, the Minnesota Timberwolves are, sadly, not on the list of elite teams. Miami, Los Angeles, San Antonio maybe, but not Minnesota. At least not yet. But is that still a reason to mutter what appears to be a phrase-we-can't-say-on-Quick-County-96.5 under your breath after you've been announced as the Timberwolves' latest draft pick?

USA Loses, But Still Advances In World Cup?

I have to admit, after watching a little of the USA vs Portugal World Cup soccer match last weekend (which ended in 2-2 tie), I did spend a little time today watching Team USA take on Germany. (SPOILER ALERT!!) The match ended earlier Thursday, and while Team USA lost the match 1-0, they're still advancing. Huh?

You’ve Never Seen A Slip-And-Slide Like This! [Video]

Ahh, summer in Minnesota -- where, once the heat and humidity gets here, the kids will no doubt want you to take them to Soldier's Field or Silver Lake Pool, or maybe Foster Arend Beach. Or maybe just set up the Slip And Slide in the backyard. But I'm guessing you probably haven't set up a Slip And Slide like this before -- where you end up sliding off the edge of a 50-foot cliff!

Minnesota Man Arrested…Because He Logged Into Facebook?

They don't get much dumber than THIS guy -- and we're lucky enough to call him a fellow Minnesotan. It seems that while this guy was busy burglarizing a house in South St. Paul earlier this week, he decided to change out of his wet clothes (which he left behind). Oh, and he figured while he was there he might as well check his Facebook page on the computer in the office of the home he was burglarizing.  Get where this is going?

Was That A Giant Clam Shell Floating Down The Mississippi River?

All the rain Minnesota has received in the last few weeks has caused many rivers in parts of the state to overflow their banks and flood surrounding areas. The lift bridge in Stillwater is closed due to high water on the St. Croix River. Even the mighty Mississippi in St. Paul is running high, and has created some unique pictures. But did KSTP-TV's cameras really catch a giant clam shell floating down the river this morning?

Flight Attendant’s Funny Pre-Flight Speech

About a week ago, my wife and I flew out to Arizona for a few days to explore the Sedona area and the Grand Canyon.  While both our flight there and back were fine -- despite flying into the Twin Cities during the storm that hit Minnesota last Monday night -- I can't say our flight attendants gave a pre-flight speech as amusing as this guy did
