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!

Robin Williams As Troops ‘Retreat’ On Him [VIDEO]

Robin Williams was such a huge figure -- he was a brilliant comedian, and an Oscar-winning actor, of course -- but was also quite the humanitarian, raising money for many different causes. He also spent many hours during the holidays overseas, performing for our troops with the USO. Here's a cool video that shows how Robin reacted when, in the middle of his performance, his audience of military personnel suddenly turned their backs on him in (what he jokingly called) 'retreat'.

Might We Be Rushing Things Just A Little Bit?

Seeing that I don't have kids, I'm not a completely sure, but I'm guessing the Back To School sections of retailers around Rochester have been fully stocked now since just after the 4th of July.  And even though it's not even mid-August yet, while running a few errands this morning, I witnessed yet another glimpse of how stores tend to rush the seasons on us.

‘Natalie’ Promotes Whose Visit To ‘The Tonight Show’?

A few years ago, Katy Perry filmed a video of her alter-ego, 'Kathy,' in a video for her song 'Last Friday Night.' Now, it appears a certain country superstar has taken a cue from Ms. Perry and filmed a video of herself as 'Natalie' that appears to be a veiled promo for the singer's appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show later this week.  Gee, who could it be?

Burning Kevin Love’s Jersey – Minnesota Nice Style

So, we've been hearing for awhile now about how the Timberwolves' Kevin Love was basically done playing here in Minnesota.

And, sure enough, word is there's a deal that'll send Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, a first-round draft pick and a case of Surly Furious. (Okay, I might have made that last part up).

So if you're angry Kevin feels we're not worthy of his basketball skills and wants to leave us, but your 'Minnesota Nice' streak makes it tough to own up to your anger, here's a video just for you...

Got Milk? This Guy Does – And Check Out What It Does For Him

Being that I'm from Wisconsin, I guess it's no surprise I love just about every kind of dairy product out there -- from cheese, to butter, to ice cream -- you name it, I love it. (I also love another beverage that Wisconsin is known for, but I digress...) But while I always knew milk was good for you, I had no idea it could make such a magical transformation. Check out what just a little milk does to this guy:

Oops – How Do You Spell ‘Bridgewater’?

As much as we all use keyboards these days, from our phones, to our tablets, to our computers at work, it's not surprising typos and mistakes happen. But you'd think that, when you're a major department store ordering team jerseys for an NFL team, maybe SOMEBODY would have caught this little omission in Teddy Bridgewater's jersey.
