Curt St. John

Curt St. John couldn’t be happier to join the Quick Country 96.5 staff! Growing up, being on the radio is all he dreamed of doing. After a stint that required him to wear a bear suit to be the mascot for an AM station that aired Chicago Cubs games in his hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, he did end up on the radio, working weekends and overnights while he earned his degree from UW-Eau Claire.

Curt next hosted a morning radio show in Eau Claire for 15 years, and after getting married, he and his wife moved to Rochester in April of 2012. In his spare time, Curt likes to get out on the mountain bike, take their dog, Chance, for a walk, catch ‘House Hunters’ on TV and work on his next batch of home-brewed beer. Now that he’s here in Minnesota, Curt loves to follow the Twins and Wild– although he still confesses to rooting for certain MLB, NFL and Big 10 football teams that hail from a state just east of here. Curt is excited to keep you company in the afternoon and play the most continuous country on your way home!

He’s Got The Right Idea: Giant Panda Loves The Snow

Our early start to winter this year (after a spring that seemed like it was never going to get here) has me-- a guy who usually doesn't mind the snow and cold, mind you-- already grumbling about how long this winter is shaping up to be. It doesn't help that there's more snow in the forecast in the next few days, either. But maybe this giant panda has the attitude I should adopt...

Last Year For 40,000 Light Bloomington Christmas Tree?

I took advantage of Sunday's rare respite from our cold November weather and finally got all our outdoor Christmas lights put up. We have some lights on the shrubs, a couple of string of icicle lights along the eves, and a couple of strings along our deck and fence in the backyard. It looks nice, but there aren't a ton of lights-- certainly not as many as this huge oak tree in Bloomington. But will this be the last year for the tree with 40,000 lights?

Canadian Crowd Finishes U.S. National Anthem After Sound System Fails

Having worked in the media now for over 26 years, I'm well aware that technical difficulties can, and often do, appear at the most inopportune times. It's just a fact. So, it's always good to have a back-up plan, like a spare microphone or cord, or extra batteries when you're on-location doing a broadcast. But what do you do if you're singing the U.S. national anthem before a Maple Leaf/Nashville Predator game in Toronto and the sound system fails?

Just How ‘Minnesota’ Are You?

When an audio recording of Taylor Swift doing a 'Minnesota Soccer Mom' accent surfaced late last week, it got me wondering just HOW Minnesota Taylor really is-- or isn't. (Turns out 'isn't' is more appropriate-- she was born in Pennsylvania but moved to Nashville when she was 14 to pursue her music career, and has never spent any time in Minnesota). But, just how 'Minnesota' are you?  Take this handy quiz and find out...

Chance’s Weekly Pigskin Picks: Vikings vs Packers

My dog, Chance, has been predicting the outcome of each week's Vikings game now for the last 8 weeks. While he started fast out of the gate with a string of 4 wins in 5 weeks, he's now back at .500, with both four correct and four incorrect picks. So, who does he think will win when the Packers visit the Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday?

Taylor Swift Has A Killer Minnesota Accent?

Tickets to see Taylor Swift here in Minnesota at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul next September went on sale earlier today (which seems a little early, if you ask me-- the shows are still almost 10 months away!), but did you know that Taylor can also do a pretty mean "Minnesota soccer mom” impression?

Woman Nails 14 Celebrity Impressions…While Driving

I'm a sucker for celebrity impressions-- even if they're not done by humans, as this video of a parrot doing a pretty good Matthew McConaughey will attest. And, I've been known to try to perfect an impression or two (or horribly belt out a song) while I've been behind the wheel, tooling down Highway-52. Thankfully, I've never recorded myself. But this woman has-- and her celebrity impressions are pretty funny!

Californians Try Five Minnesota Foods For The First Time

A few days ago, I posted a video that showed some of our fellow Americans (not from around here) trying some "Midwest" foods. It was okay, but outside of tater-tot hot dish, it didn't feature too many of our uniquely Minnesota foods. This video, however, changes that. Whether it's Jello salad, lutefisk, a Juicy Lucy or a Nut Goodie Bar, the reactions of these Californians as they try some of our Minnesota foods for the first time is pretty funny!

Another Reason I’m Glad I Live In Southeastern Minnesota

Getting our first snow of the season on Veteran's Day, November 11th, sure seemed a little early, if you ask me-- about a month early! Plus, Mother Nature's continued icy grip has set records for the lowest high temperature here in Rochester the past two days, as well. But after seeing the weather residents of western New York state are dealing with yesterday and today, I'll take our weather here in southeastern Minnesota!
