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!

Fall Color Ride… Without The Fall Colors

How about that weather we had this past weekend here in southeastern Minnesota?! It was absolutely gorgeous, and seeing as the long-range forecast for next weekend wasn't supposed to be quite as good, my wife and I hopped in the car to check out the fall colors here in our neck of the woods Sunday afternoon.  The only problem was, we were a little early: outside of a lone red or orange tree here and there, most of the foliage we encountered was still pretty much green, with just a hint of yellow.

Vikings Win; Chance 1-0 In Weekly Pigskin Picks!

Did you catch any of the Vikings 41-28 victory over the Falcons yesterday? That was quite the debut for Teddy Bridgewater, as well as for a team that had no less than 5 different opening-day starters NOT playing! I don't want to jinx things, but our dog Chance, in his inaugural Weekly Pigskin Picks (which we shot last Thursday morning), correctly predicted the Vikings would hand it to the Falcons! That makes him 1-for-1 on the season so far. Check it out:

For Brewers Fans Like Me, There’s Always Next Year…

It ended mercifully yesterday when they lost-- again--  to the Cincinnati Reds. My home-state team, the Milwaukee Brewers, were knocked out of MLB playoff contention for the third year in a row. And while Wisconsin baseball fans like me are used to not making the playoffs, this year seemed like it might turn out a little differently, considering the Crew was in first place in the NL Central from April 5th through August 31-- that's 150 days-- before collapsing down the stretch to finish out of the playoffs in third behind Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

My Favorite One-Hit Wonder: CW McCall’s ‘Convoy’

Seeing as today is National 'One Hit Wonder' Day, I thought I'd post the video for my favorite One Hit Wonder: CW McCall's 1976 country hit, Convoy!  I remember my dad having the 45 (that's what we called the small, vinyl records with the big hole in them that contained only one song per side) of this song when I was a little kid; I didn't know there was a video to along with it until now.

Exercise Ball Fails!

I've been back from vacation now for four days, after having spent a week on the Outer Banks down in North Carolina. It was a great vacation; my wife and I watched our niece get married on the beach, we did some sightseeing, some relaxing and some swimming in the ocean. I also did a lot of eating!  So, after a lazy vacation like that, it's time for me to get back to the gym.  I'm just not going to be using an exercise ball in any of these ways anytime soon...

Ellen Hilariously Puts Herself In Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln Commercial

Have you seen those TV commercials Matthew McConaughey has done for Lincoln? They're a little weird, if you ask me. I get that the ad agency that created them is no doubt trying to go for a certain vibe to define the Lincoln brand, but the commercials still seem to be a little off the beaten path. Ellen apparently thinks so, too-- and she's wondering why they took her parts out...

What Would It Be Like If Women Were Honest On Dates?

Sometimes it seems we're so conditioned to be polite in today's society (well, some of us more so than others...) that we find ourselves saying the exact opposite of what we're really thinking because we don't want to be seen as being rude. This can be especially true when one is on a first date.  What would it be like, though, if we were able to be completely honest when we're on a date?

Ellen Introduces Old Technology To Young Humans

Technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, doesn't it? Earlier this month Apple unveiled their new Apple Watch that will make your phone obsolete (they hope), along with their Apple Pay system that will make your wallet obsolete (again, they hope). But if you're my age, you remember what life was like before all this technology. And so does Ellen...
