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!

Vikings’ Ponder Pays For Grieving Family’s Shopping Spree

He may not have been the most popular Viking in Minnesota, given how he and his team played against the Packers earlier this month, but there's no doubt about it: Christian Ponder is a good guy. And in a season where bad news seems to come out of the NFL too often, it's refreshing to see an NFL player making the news in a good way. So what exactly did Christian and his wife do?

Keith Olbermann’s Rant About Adrian Peterson

Keith Olbermann has been a commentator for various networks and channels for awhile now. But he got his start alongside Dan Patrick on ESPN's SportsCenter back in the 90's. So, he must be used to the, uh, "shenanigans" that some professional athletes have pulled over the years. Which is why he's saved plenty of vitriol for the Vikings own AP, and his less-than-smart actions as of late.

Taylor Swift’s Cat vs John Cleese’s Cat! [Video]

Pets are kind of like kids in that everyone thinks their own (pets and/or kids, that is) are the cutest things out there. And if you have pets, then you know that you don't just insult them to their owners' faces-- that's bad form. Unless, of course, you're a famous British comedian (and fellow pet-owner) like John Cleese and you're appearing on a well-known British TV talk show with the American singer. Watch how he "insults" Taylor's cat, Olivia-- and how Taylor reacts...

[video] Hawk Attacks Drone!

The past summer we had several hawks residing in the wooded area behind our house. I could hear their distinctive cries and could see them soaring overhead, searching the nearby open fields for some prey. Every now and again, one would land in the big oak tree right behind our house. They really are impressive birds.  Which just reinforces how much I wouldn't want one to attack me, as this hawk does to a drone equipped with a video camera...

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings or Lions?

It's the third installment of Chance's Weekly Pigskin Picks, and so far my dog, Chance, has correctly predicted that the Vikings would beat the Falcons, and that the Packers would beat the Vikings.  That makes him 2-for-2. So, this week Chance is back to predict just who will be victorious as the Vikings get set to host the Lions in an NFC North match-up Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. So just who does Chance think is going to win?

The Price Is…Wrong. Way Wrong!

I've always heard that it's tougher to be on a TV game show than it appears to the rest of us watching at home. The lights, the camera, the audience all add pressure-- not to mention all those fabulous cash awards and prizes that are on the line, too. So maybe we should cut this guy a little slack, even though his bid on this hammock on The Price Is Right seems to be a little...off. Okay, it's WAAAAY off.

MnDOT’s New Winter Road Descriptions

Remember last year and the winter that would never quit? If you were like me, you were always checking MnDOT's 511 Traveler Information website or app to see what the roads were like. You'd see terms like "fair driving condition" or "good winter driving condition." But what did those terms really mean? That's why, starting this later year, you'll see all-new winter road descriptions on MnDOT's website and apps.
