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!

[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!

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!
