Good evening to all out there this is wabc radios late night slot call in show with your host Tom Morrow, the theme is on pesonality traits and how we percive them
not myself personally.' I am talking of the general populace, I have right at my side a person well known in the psyciciatric field. The emminent Mr Speir Kopf, I am hoping tonight to hear from a couple of callers we had earlier in the year, I am talking 1st of all to Linny, who was good enough to make us aware of his personal struggle with his self image, also there was a guy Will Chauvinist'e who was commenting at some length on how he reacted to Linnys condition, if you were listening in last time, you may have gathered I was not impressed with Wills views and offered to set up a show with a registered psyciatrist, which has taken rather longer than I have anticipated, but here we are; Is Mr Will Chauvanist'e out there in listener land.? Brr brr brr Hello caller hello.. Yes hello this is Linnie again,good to hear from you Linnie you are live on air at wabc radio the station that's not afraid to bring you dear listener to the challenges and may I say, predjudices many out there face today.' May I ask you Linnie did the last phone in help you in your daily life.? Well I will say it gave me hope Tom, yes Linnie; go on.. Have you found people more accepting of your condition? I think so yes, but they seem to just talk generally small talk that sort of thing.' I am pleased that you managed to get Speir Kopf on the show can I speak to him direct? Of course Linniy I'll just put you over to you Speir may I call you that Mr Kopf? yes of course Tom.' Hello Linnie pleased to speak to you I am here to give you positive advice, and indeed advise anyone with perhaps hostile views toward you how best they can overcome their shall I say 'paranoia?' yes I guess that's a good description, now in the absence of Mr Chauvanist'e how did you feel listening to the guy's remarks Linnie? We--el I felt downgraded and sidelined for starters.' Just like I was not important at all and would you like to answer Mr Chauvaniste's comments? yes I would, well I have just been made aware that he is calling in now.' Are you O K to speak with him now? Yes I am
Hello am I talking with Linnie? Yes you have that pleasure.' Well I have my own idea of pleasure Linnie.' To me this is just an exchange of views.' Well I never..'
It seems you are just rude; straight off Will.' Maybe Linnie.. Well I'll bet you are just a testosterone fuelled middle aged white guy.? Full of anger and looking down on women; kids lgbt and ethnic minority's; and also me yes..? I just can't stand the sort of carping self-rightousnss claptrap.' Applause in the studio... Hello this is Mr Kopf Linnie, do you mind if I talk to Mr Chauvanist'e? No talk to him, Hello Will' Hello Mr Kopf, Do you see anything of yourself in what Linnie said? I don't think so, would you associate with people of varied backgrounds Will? May I talk Mr Kopf? yes. I will give you an instance I run my own buisness I am working sometimes 18 hours a day I have a wife I dearly love.. Now look here Will.' what has that to do with people of different genders etc? Well can I talk here Mr Kopf?
My wife had a relation who was quite effeminate & who had a bad relationship with his wife he blamed everything on this woman, now he was a singer who got thru to the x-factor UK he said wanted to live somewhere not to far away from his family while he got his relationship / life fixed up; also he needed someone to be his manager, so I stepped in I knew a music producer who took him on after he was ejected from the x-factor house, I tried to reabilitate his career he had offers to sing on cruise liners he turned them down, he said he di not want to leave the kids too far.' then one night at about 12'o'clock after I had got into bed after a gruelling day he got out whiskey and assorted alcohol and fired up the large karaoke I had bought him,
and sung on to 2 to 3 in the morning, now I was living in a 2 bed house at that time.' Sometime after this a woman made negative comments about him, then he and another woman who told him the news went to the womans house who spoke against him, they smashed in and broke up the place traumatizing the womans young kids who were there, later on he ran off with a man leaving his children 'that he said' he could not leave for the cruiseliner engagements, so yes I do have experience of a self-centered homosexual person anyway.' who was a complete nightmare to deal with. I would like to stay and chat but my day starts at 5am and i must organize 4 men tomorrow I personally will move 5 tonnes of bricks by hand in tight spaces, I will call back but now I have to get some rest, I hope you understand.?

    Well, I thought this was going to be more interactive with Linnie. But I liked the story Tom talked about :)
