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!

Guy Pulls Prank At Grocery Store Self-Service Checkout

Do you ever use the self-service checkout lanes? I don't mind using them when I only have a few items, but when we go grocery shopping for the week, we use the lanes with actual checkers working them.  Using the self-service checkouts can sometimes be a frustrating experience-- I usually end up trying to scan things too fast which results in the check-out thinking I have an 'unauthorized item in the bagging area.' Which is why I'd no doubt fall for a prank like this one, if somebody pulled it on a few self-service check-outs here in Rochester:

‘Road Rash’: A Good Look On A Monday

One of the great things about living in Rochester is the many bike trails that crisscross our fine city. We live near the Cascade Lake Trail and I love heading out in the morning before work to get in a quick ride. I don't necessarily like sporting the requisite 'road rash' one gets when one bites it while on the bike, but that's what I'm doing today!

How To Fold A Shirt… In Under 2 Seconds?!?

I'm not sure why, but I have a TON of t-shirts in my closet at home. I've got product giveaway t-shirts, old radio station t-shirts, t-shirts I bought from locations we traveled to on vacation, plus a ton of sports team t-shirts (my wife's favorite!).  So, folding all these shirts becomes quite the chore when doing laundry. But, after watching this video, I should be able to fold ANY shirt-- in under 2 seconds!

What To Do If Squirrels Are Raiding Your Bird Feeder

We have a bird feeder in our backyard and every time I fill it up, in addition to the cardinals, blue jays, finches and chickadees that stop by for a bite to eat, there are a couple of squirrels and chipmunks who stop by as well. They jump on the feeder and proceed to pig out. The entire feeder is usually emptied out within a day or two, and a couple of times the shepherd's hook the feeder is hanging on has been bent over from the weight of the squirrels!  What to do? Take a look at what this guy did-- and all it took was a little Vaseline!

‘Healthy Human Race’ Weekend In Rochester

I used to say the only running I liked to do was either running from responsibility or running from authority. This year, however, I started running a couple of miles on the treadmill a few times a week, and earlier this summer, I ran my first 5K. I've even - gasp - gone running along the Cascade Trail too. While I've always liked hitting the trails on my bicycle, I never thought I'd see the day when I'd run for fun. But I actually like it! Which is why I'm looking forward to all the different activities going on this weekend, all part of Mayo Clinic's Healthy Human Race Weekend here in Rochester.

Now THAT’S A Backyard Pool

I remember there being a couple of really hot summers when I was growing up back in central Wisconsin where my friends and I spent just about everyday at the municipal pool a mile or so from our house. We didn't have our own pool in the backyard, nor did any of my friends. And, we don't still don't have one. Which is why a couple of hot and steamy days (like today and tomorrow are supposed to be) get me thinking how cool it'd be to have a pool like THIS in our yard!

Taking The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Avoid These Fails!

Is there anyone left in the free world who has yet to do the ALS Association Ice Bucket Challenge we can't seem to get enough of on Facebook? I think I even saw that Kermit The Frog had accepted the challenge! So with the massive number of people who've done said challenge, there were bound to be a few less-than-successful attempts. Fails, you might say. So if you're still thinking about taking the challenge, you might want to avoid what these people have done...
