Delirious Insomniac (WLUW)

Carlos is a regular caller at WLUW for us lately. I can only assume by comparing voices, that he calls himself Charlie when he is sober. He sounds similar, and is equally babblesome, although Carlos calls more than Charlie. Charlie gave me advice on how to get paper not to wrinkle when using watercolors. He's not a bad guy to talk to provided that you know how to snuff a conversation before it goes downhill. Carlos, however, rambles about the revolution and the Mayans and whatever comes off the top of his head. Eric Lab Rat gets more amused by him than I do. He put Carlos on the air via speaker phone just before my show, to have a bit of fun, and sure enough the word "Motherfucker" was belched out. Not that I care. But when Eric left, I kept him on speaker phone and didn't say a word to him. He first improvised his best opera voice over Klaus Nomi, and then started complaining, saying that what I was playing was too "Sentimental". It didn't take him long before he started pouring out his problems like many of the uninhibited tend to do, telling me that either his daughter or his sister was sexually abused and that he is in a wheelchair. He then confided that the church told him it was his fault; that God did this to him. In this radio show you can hear Carlos swear at the beginning and later ramble in the background while In was trying to talk, before I hung up on him. He was on an entirely unprovoked rant about how to find God. He called for a half hour after that. A Man of strong convictions.
