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!

When Did You Really Start Feeling Old?

Remember when you turned 30, and thought you were old because you didn't like MTV anymore?  And you and your friends started hanging out at home instead of heading out on the weekends?  Well, guess what?  You weren't old then. And, if you're like me-- in your 40's-- you're still not old. Really!  So at what age do most people start to 'feel old'?

I often think of this kind of thing happening to any truck carrying a big load that happens to be in front on me on a highway when we're approaching an overpass...

Car On Fire vs Lions: What Would You Do?

I saw this story earlier today about how a family's minivan caught on fire while they were in a lion enclosure at a safari park in London. Now THERE'S a no-win situation! What do you do? Stay in the minivan while the fire continues to rage around you-- or get out of the van and stand around while 12 hungry lions move in?

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.
