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!

20 Years Ago Tonight: OJ & The Bronco Chase

It's hard to believe, but 20 years ago tonight, the world was riveted to our TV's (most of us didn't yet have cellphones, and if you did have one, you couldn't watch any video feeds on it...) as we watched a parade of police vehicles slowly chase a white Ford Bronco down an LA freeway. O.J. Simpson was sitting in the backseat, allegedly with a gun to his head. Al “A.C.” Cowlings, Simpson’s friend and former teammate in high school, college and the N.F.L., was behind the wheel.

World Cup Soccer MVP To Watch: Purin, The Super Beagle!

The FIFA World Cup Soccer tournament kicks off Thursday from Brazil. Now, I'm certainly not a big soccer fan, but I do remember the 2010 World Cup Tournament from South Africa. Remember how you'd hear those buzzing vuvuvela's in the background? That was the 2010 World Cup. I can't tell you which country won, however.  And while I don't know who's favored in this year's tournament, I DO know who the MVP should be: Purin, the Super Beagle!

[VIDEO] Oops! MLB Ballboy Unknowingly Fields Fair Ball

When you go to any baseball game-- from a Twins game at Target Field, to a Honkers game at Mayo Field-- one of things the stadium announcer always tells you is, "Don't interfere with the ball in play..." They must tell ballboys that, too-- but during the excitement of a ball being hit right in your direction, apparently you sometimes forget that old adage.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame– Just Not In The ‘Family Section’

My wife and I joined my brother and my nephew to take my dad to his first game at Target Field Thursday, as the Brewers and the Twins wrapped up their only interleague series of the year. (The Brewers won Thursday's game 8-5, and split the series with the Twins 2-2.)  While last night wasn't my first trip to Target Field, I did learn something: Don't try to take a beer into section 310!
