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!

The Funniest Moment From American Idol’s Minneapolis Auditions

There were several moments on Wednesday night's American Idol auditions from Minneapolis I thought were pretty good: Like country singer Zach Johnson getting through to Hollywood (and getting up on stage with Keith Urban in Sioux Falls), to Cindy-Jo, the bear hunter from North Branch, to Minneapolis landscape foreman Mark Andrew. But what was my favorite moment?

Local News Anchor Loses It On-Air…Why?

In the now 26-plus years I've been working on the air, there have been a few times I've kind of lost it. Doing the morning show the day after 9/11 back in 2001 was a tough one. So was the day a local sheriff's deputy back in Wisconsin was killed in the line of duty. This local TV anchor is pretty emotional, too -- but for a slightly different reason.

Thomas Rhett’s Country Version of Bruno Mars’ “If I Was Your Man”

I've been a fan of Bruno Mars for a couple of years now-- even before he did the Super Bowl halftime show a few years ago. I think it was his appearance on the Grammy Awards three of four years ago that first put him on my radar, and I've enjoyed his 70's-sounding songs ever since. Turns out Thomas Rhett is a Bruno fan too-- so much that he's redone one of Bruno's hit songs.

Ever Wonder How A Hamster Stores So Much Food In Its Cheeks?

My wife and I made some homemade ground turkey burgers while watching the football games yesterday, along with some oven-roasted fries. Man, they were good-- and I ate a ton! Way more than I should have, really. I'm sure I resembled this hamster as he enjoys his favorite food. But how's he able to store all that in his cheeks?

Chance (And Friends) Pigskin Playoff Picks

All season long, our dog, Chance, predicted the winner of the Vikings game each week. He finished with a record just above .550 and, somehow, survived the round of firings after the last game of the regular season. Well, he's back now-- along with some additional playoff prognosticators-- to predict the winner of this Sunday's NFC contest between the Packers and the Seahawks.

My wife and love to watch shows like House Hunters Renovation, Rehab Addict, Fixer Upper and Property Brothers, where they show the steps involved in turning a house that needs "a little updating" into a fully remodeled and updated home. We love seeing how modern the finished results turn out-- just like these celebrity living rooms.
