I'm an old CL developer too, if you mean common lisp.
I'm not a guile expert.  However, here are some things you can try.

T1: rewrite char-pos to not use call/cc.  This is just a guess that call/cc 
might be expensive.

T2: rewrite load-records so it avoids reading the entire file into memory with 
read-line. I'd do this with a tiny tail recursive finite state machine.  Since 
tokens are separated by #\tab and records by #\newline, you should only need a 
couple of states.
