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!

Jeremy Lin Startles Visitors At Wax Museum

Have you ever been to a wax museum?  I've only been to one-- the Royal Wax Museum in Wisconsin Dells, and I didn't think it was all that good. (I mistook the Julia Roberts wax statue for Howard Stern-- or was it the other way around?)  But Madame Tussaud's is supposed to be pretty good-- especially their statue of LA Lakers star, Jeremy Lin. It's so good, in fact, that the when the real Jeremy Lin sat next to it, supposedly even his family couldn't tell the difference. Of course, he took the opportunity to startle a few museum visitors, too.

Ever Played Pool On A Life-Size Pool Table? Jimmy Fallon Has

Both my grandparents had pool tables in their basements when I was a growing up, so whenever we were over at their house, we usually ended up playing a game of pool. (You'd think I'd be better at the game, given my early start; but sadly, I'm still not very good...)  I also bowled in a Saturday morning league when I was a kid, as well (Same result there...).  But I can't say I ever put them together, like Jimmy Fallon did the other night!

Girls Defy Death By Swimming In Victoria Falls

My wife and I are headed on vacation for a week to the Outer Banks in North Carolina on Saturday. In addition to attending our niece's wedding, we'll hopefully get some time in at the beach. I'm not sure there are any waterfalls nearby, but if there are, they probably aren't like Victoria Falls in South Africa, which features a 350-foot drop-off-- that's almost twice as tall as Niagra Falls. Which is okay, seeing as I wouldn't swim right up to the waterfall, anyway-- but that didn't stop these girls!

Got New iPhone Fever? Not Me…

Apple is holding another one of it's much-ballyhooed press conferences on Tuesday, where they'll reportedly unveil the new iPhone 6, as well as some sort of 'wearable' device, referred to as the iWatch.  Then, of course, the new devices will be on sale for the rest of us to purchase. And while some people will rush to plunk down their hard-earned money, I won't be one of them.
