Who is he? You can ask him, but I doubt even he really knows. I can hear Carlos saying something like, “a work in progress” or “ask me tomorrow, I hope today is the day I figure that out”. This Puerto Rican kid was born in Maine during a snow storm. He blames the snow storm for his lack of a Spanish accent and inability to roll his R’s like the rest of his family. But hey, “he was born in Maine, DURING A SNOW STORM! It must have been so cold that it froze that part of his brain or something.
Raised in Atlanta, GA and Tampa, FL Carlos has the South in him as much as he does his Puerto Rican roots. Rap, Reggae, Rock, Merengue, Salsa, R n’ B, Soul, Funk are like a musical gumbo for him. Carlos shares, “I love music. Always have. Its been in my life for as long as I can remember and I got into radio because of it. To be able to tell their stories, talk about their songs and see people react in the same way I did when I first heard it. Still blows my mind.”
Carlos’ break into radio as a “real DJ” started with two turntables and a crate full of records when he was brought into a Christian radio station in Tampa, FL to mix live on Friday nights. Even though he “had many chances to work in mainstream radio, he just never wanted to. Carlos said “It’s not in me. I live for Christ daily and want to show that in my actions and tell as many people as I can about Him. Radio is a pretty big platform and thankfully, so far its all worked out. God is good like that.”
