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!

6 Last-Minute Halloween ‘Tricks’

If you're like me, you're always doing things at the last minute. I've been this way since college, I think. Instead of continually putting off a big paper I had to write for several weeks, I began PLANNING to write it the day before it was due -- seeing as that's when I was probably going to end up writing it anyway. As they say, nothing like a little deadline pressure to get motivated! So if you're still trying to figure out a few things for your Halloween costume or party -- seeing as today is Halloween -- here are 6 handy Halloween hacks to help you out!

My Dog, Chance’s Halloween Tattoo

My dog, Chance, in addition to predicting with uncanny accuracy how the Vikings will do each week, is also a guy who enjoys celebrating the holidays. He's been known to wear a pair of Christmas reindeer antlers or a holiday scarf, as well as a New Year's Eve bow tie. And with Halloween on Friday, Chance has already gotten into the spirit of dressing up by wearing his Vikings helmet, complete with horns and braided hair. But now, he's got another way to celebrate the season.

Teddy Bear The Porcupine’s Halloween Feast

When I think of a Halloween feast, I usually think about tearing into the candy bowl we've got sitting around the house -- candy that's meant for trick-or-treaters, not me. My Halloween feast would include stuff like Milky Ways, Snickers, Kit Kats, Candy Corn and even some Mounds bars.  And while we also have a couple of pumpkins on our porch, I don't often think of pumpkins as a Halloween feast. Of course, I'm not a porcupine, like this guy, named Teddy Bear.

Just In Time For Halloween: More Mysterious, Unexplained Photos

I've been trying to become a little more familiar with Photoshop lately, seeing as there are so many cool things you can do with pictures you right from your phone. But the creepy thing about THESE pictures is that most of them were taken WAY before digital photos and programs like Photoshop were even invented.  So how do experts explain the images in some of these pictures?

Trick Shots: Glow In The Dark Edition!

I've never been very good at making any kind of trick shot, whether it was basketball, golf, or bowling-- and that was with the lights on.  So, I'm kind of amazed at these trick shots the guys from Dude Perfect can do IN THE DARK!  (And, with Halloween only a few days away, this might answer the question of just what was going bump in the night: It was probably these guys, practicing!)

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings or Buccaneers?

My dog, Chance-- Quick Country 96.5's own prognosticating pup-- is back with another prediction on who'll win Sunday's battle between the Buccaneers of Tampa Bay and our own Vikings.

So, Chance's record is now 3-and-1 going into Sunday's game. Who does he think will win?
