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!

Best Birthday Ever: Dog Surprised With 100 Balls! [Video]

Watch: Incredible Drone Video Shows Fireworks From Inside!

If you're like me, you've probably seen many different fireworks shows on the 4th of July. I've seen them from far away, I've seen them over water, and I've been right on the ground near where the pyrotechnics were setting them off. But, I've never had the opportunity to see fireworks like THIS before-- from inside the explosions, courtesy of a drone equipped with a GoPro-3 camera!

A 4th Of July Staycation In Southeastern Minnesota

How was your 4th of July weekend?
