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 (who works at Mayo) moved to Rochester in April of 2012. In his spare time, Curt likes to get out on the mountain bike, 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 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!

Is This The Next Viral Smash Song… Or A Joke?

I happened to see this video, entitled "Summertime Is Great" earlier today and I can't for the life of me tell if it's a legitimate song, like Rebecca Black's "Friday" from a few years ago, or is an elaborate joke, meant to go "viral" online.

Take a look (if you can bear to watch the whole thing, that is...), and let me know what you think!

My Race With A… Can?

Ever find yourself fascinated by what appears to be a very benign object? I was walking our dog Chance the other morning, and were just at the top of a very gentle hill in our neighborhood when I noticed an empty pop can that was rolling down the street right next to us.

It caught my attention because it was rolling along at pretty much the same speed Chance (who's a 35 pound Beagle mix) and I were walking.

Where’s The Weirdest Place You’ve Ever Left Your Phone?

When I left the scenic Quick Country studios, located high atop the Townsquare Media Building in downtown Rochester, yesterday evening, I accidentally left my phone behind. Of course, I didn't realize that I'd forgotten the phone until I got home and was going to recharge it. At which point, though, I started freaking out. Where's my phone?!? Did I lose it again?!?

What Color Is The Green Shuttle?

I was on my way to the station the other day, and happened to be stopped at a stoplight in downtown Rochester right next to one of the Mayo shuttles-- in this case, it was the 'Green Shuttle' that runs between Saint Marys campus and Mayo's main buildings. But what color, would you guess, is the Green Shuttle?

Minnesota Beers Do Well At World Cup!

I like to support local businesses and products, so I think it's great when our local Minnesota-made products win international awards because they're so awesome!  The latest are a bunch of Minnesota breweries, whose beers won medals at the World Beer Cup last weekend.

What’s Your Latest Food Addiction?

When it comes to food, there's not much I don't like. I'll try just about anything. But when I find something I like, I tend to eat A LOT of it for a while and then finally calm down and back off.

My latest addiction is my morning breakfast: a toasted English muffin with lingonberry preserves on it. Love it!

The World’s Worst ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Contestant?

I once read an article by a game show producer who said they purposely try to feature contestants that are a little...uh...slower than the average viewer-- so that when you're watching at home, YOU know the correct answer while they sometimes don't. I see what he means with THIS contestant...

Have You Ever Given Up Pop? I’m Giving It a Go and It Ain’t Easy

I'm making the switch away from caffeine.

Since the beginning of the year, I've also been drinking less pop and trying to cut down on the calories.

I thought I was doing good in avoiding caffeine by drinking water

Here’s What It Looks Like to Get Nailed Head-On by a Cement Truck

I'll take 'Things I Don't Want To See When I'm Driving' for $500, please.  A Texas A&M professor was behind the wheel of his minivan near the school's campus on Tuesday when a cement truck ran a red light, tipped over, and nailed him HEAD-ON.  Luckily, neither of the drivers were seriously injured.  And the van had a dashcam running.

The CIA Reportedly Used Which Band’s Music To ‘Torture’ Guantanamo Bay Detainees?

There's a lot of music I don't necessarily like to listen to, but I'm not sure I'd call it 'torture.' However, a new report from Al Jazeera suggests that the CIA once used Chili Peppers to 'torture' prisoners at Guantanamo Bay-- and we’re not talking the spicy tongue-burning kind.
