GARAGE SALE CARL!

Charming,  enthusiastic, and a little creepy, he's ...

CARL

Many moons ago, a tiny man wearing a perpetual grin appeared in the WATZ studio. Staff didn't know where he came from, but they knew with his slightly disheveled, eclectic choice of clothing, obsession with Trademart listings, and never-ending thirst for coffee, the little man belonged. 

Eventually, after bribing him with a seemingly endless amount of Polish sausage, he told Steve Wright his name was Garage Sale Carl. We learned Carl loves taking road trips to rummage through people's junk while listening to old episodes of Sunday Morning in Poland. He seems to subsist on cured meats and coffee, though he's recently been training for competitive doughnut-eating competitions. (He keeps a stack of assorted cake doughnuts on his hat to use whenever he has time to get in a bite or two.) 

Carl lives in the WATZ Van and often parks down by the river to socialize with his geese friends there. (They're about the same size and have similar gaits.) If you see Carl too close to the shore, please alert WATZ. Sometimes Carl rides a coffee buzz so hard he goes skinny-dipping and ends up in Canada with his geese friends, who always forget Carl doesn't have dual-citizenship. WATZ is eager to avoid another international incident with our neighbors to the north. 

 

Carl loves visiting area events and hanging out with listeners. Occasionally, though, Carl disappears without telling us where he's headed and we need to enlist listeners' help to locate him. Look for postings of Carl's cellphone pictures on our Facebook page for your chance to help WATZ find our gnome friend. Whoever finds him first will win some limited-edition Carl swag!
