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!

Adam Levine Plays ‘Wheel Of Musical Impressions’ With Jimmy Fallon

One thing The Voice has going for it is the fact that all its judges are pretty decent musicians in their own right. We know Blake is the real deal, and so is Adam Levine. And, it turns out that in addition to being a pretty decent guitar player, drummer and vocalist, Adam can also do some pretty mean impressions!

First Day Of School Picture (We Don’t Have Kids)

Seeing that today is the first day of school for most students throughout southeastern Minnesota, my Facebook news feed has been filled with pictures of my friends' kids as they head off to another year of academic endeavors.  I didn't want to be left out of the fun, but seeing as my wife and I don't have kids, here's my First Day Of School 2014 picture.

I Don’t Need Reading Glasses, I Just Need Longer Arms

I used to wear glasses. I got them when I was in 5th grade, when one of those eye tests revealed I was having a tough time reading the chalkboard. (Remember when schools actually had chalkboards?!?) I proceeded to wear them for the next 22 years, until I had Lasik eye surgery around 11 years ago. Well, I'm sad to say...the glasses are back. At least when it comes to reading.

[video] The Two-Second Shirt Fold: Does It Really Work?

Earlier this week, I posted a video of a guy who demonstrated a method of folding any shirt in under two seconds.  Although his video made it look easy, I was still skeptical that it would work. So, seeing as I have a ton of t-shirts at home that need to be folded when I do laundry, I put his method to the test.  Does it really work?  Take a look...

[video] Fail: Squirrel Tries To Sneak Up Bird Feeder

Last week, I posted a video of a couple who put Vaseline on the post of their bird feeder to keep a particularly pesky squirrel from eating all the birdseed.  And, knowing how industrious squirrels can be when attempting to get food from the feeder in our backyard, today I present to you a video of a squirrel whose attempt at getting that same birdseed is met with similar results-- except there's no Vaseline involved this time. But does he get the birdseed in the end?

Alec Baldwin Catches Stray Ball At U.S. Open

Alec Baldwin is noted for portraying smooth, suave characters like Jack Ryan in 'The Hunt For Red October' and, of course, Jack Donaghy on '30 Rock'. And, despite his having somewhat of a temper, he also has quite the smooth moves-- at least when it comes to grabbing a stay tennis ball headed right for him and his wife while they were court side at the U.S. Open earlier this week.

Jimmy Kimmel Stages ‘Friends’ Reunion!

I was a big fan of the show 'Friends' when it was on the air back in the 90's, Thursday nights on NBC. Most of the characters (and actors portraying them) were about my age, and were going through the same post-college phase of life I was. Of course, the show's been off the air now for a decade, but everyone still talks about a 'Friends' reunion. Except Jimmy Kimmel, that is-- he actually STAGED one!
