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!

Sure It’s Cold, But Is It Really ‘Bitter Cold’?

It's winter in Minnesota, so it shouldn't be all that unusual that it's cold, right? And with a forecast high of only 2 above zero today, I'd say that it is, indeed, cold. But tonight, when it's supposed be around 11 below zero? That's when we'll hear the weather described as "bitter cold." But what does "bitter cold" really mean?

I’ll Take ‘Things That Aren’t Fun To Do Outside During A Minnesota Cold Snap’ For $500, Please

If you're going to live here in Minnesota, you need to be able to withstand a little cold and snowy weather-- some years, about 5 months worth, it seems. I get that. But that doesn't make it any less cold when you have to stand outside at the gas station and add air to all of the tires on your SUV.

Jimmy Fallon Recaps SNL’s 40 Anniversary After-Party

I think it was David Letterman who once described being in show business as "being in high school, but with money." I imagine it's similar to that rare camaraderie you get with your coworkers, perhaps-- the people who know what you go through on a daily basis, because they do a similar job. So, I can imagine how cool it must have been to be at the star-studded Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary After-Party Sunday night at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
