Today, on what is the 19th anniversary of the fire that took the lives of 100 people and injured many more, I am sharing the 3-part series released last year. One thing is very clear, the events of that night and the days, weeks, and months that followed, have had a lasting effect on the people of West Warwick and the state of Rhode Island to this day.

A surprise episode! It was unplanned. The show remains on hiatus until October. 

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. It weighs on my mind. I have my own related trauma from that day and the days that followed as a young Boston radio DJ trying to navigate this horror where listeners called begging me for answers and to say things over the air. I was not prepared.

The two planes that hit the Twin Towers came f...

On the outside, they were a successful and loving couple but what was going on behind closed doors finally came to a head on an August night in 1995. The murder of Laura Jane Rosenthal in her Framingham, Massachusetts home was so brutal and so savage that no one would believe the killer could be sane. The crime was so salacious media outlets dubbed it "The Burnt Ziti Murder" but it had so little to do with pasta and everyth...

Part two of two - No event has impacted the city of Worcester more in the last 21 years than the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire. It showed what the city and its people are made of. On December 3, 1999, a fire broke out at an abandoned warehouse at 266 Franklin Street in Worcester, Massachusetts - a massive, six story windowless concrete box of a structure. Its maze-like design proved to be deadly.

On the evening of June 21, 1996, 20-year-old Karina Holmer went with friends to her favorite Boston club to celebrate summer solstice - a big holiday in her homeland of Sweden. She was reported missing by friends and it was discovered that she was the woman found mutilated in the trash. Her gruesome murder remains unsolved. I want to change that.
 
I’ve been planning on doing this case for a long time. It has been at the top of my li...

Allston Rock City: The events of August 1, 1987 are difficult to reconcile. A man nobody knew walked in to a rock club and shot one of the most beloved members of their misfit family. 

The rock band Bang was wrapping up their set when a man who had been asked to leave hours before returned to the club, pulled out a gun and started shooting. It took no time for patrons and regulars to figure out the sounds were not coming from the ba...

No Triumph, All tragedy. Red Sox fan and college student, Victoria Snelgrove, was shot and killed by a Boston police officer using riot gear to fend off an out of control crowd.

On Oct 20, 2004, the Red Sox clinched the championship and were headed to the World Series after a tense series against the New York Yankees - our bitter rivals. We hadn’t won in 86 years thus perpetuating the "Curse of the Bambino". Despite the gam...

On July 5, 2000, a group of local kids headed to the skating rink for stick practice. It was a common occurrence. Something they'd done dozens of times. Except for some of them, it will be for the last time. Two dads got in a heated face off. One of the dads, Michael Costin, ended up dead. This case was covered nationwide and became synonymous with parental violence in youth sports.

In November of 1992, the murder of 15-year-old Beth Brodie devastated the small town of Groveland, Mass (where I spent my childhood). Her killer was a 16 -year-old boy she knew from school who'd developed a violent obsession with her. For this premeditated and gruesome murder, he was sentenced as an adult to life in prison. That’s only part of her story.

 I talk to Beth's brother Sean Aylward to get a first-hand account of ...

In the fall of 1986, Shaun Ouillette was the new kid at Canton High in Canton, Massachusetts. The friendly, easy going 14 year old freshman had been having  trouble making friends in his new school.

On the night of June 1, 1996, two ex-Marines and former roommates lied to their girlfriends and headed the local strip club where they spent hours drinking and propositioning dancers. Around 12am, when they failed to convince any of them to leave with them, they happened upon a stunning young woman named Kristen Crowley at a nearby convenience store. They were clearly confusing fantasy with reality. One of the men thought she looke...

Part three of three. Over the course of this series of episodes, I wanted to peel back the layers of what a mess The Station Fire truly was, how we are still looking for answers, and how we are still clearing the debris of misinformation. 

The Station Fire was 18 years ago. The fire killed 100 people, hundred of others were injured physically, countless others were damaged emotionally. 

In this bonus sized episode I speak to friend a...

On the night of Feb 20, 2003, a deadly fire ripped through The Station - a local bar and music venue in the small Rhode Island town of West Warwick.? Even now, 18 years later, it remains an emotionally-charged topic. And for 18 years there remains a great deal of speculation about the events leading up to, on the night of, and what came after the fire. People hold different feelings about what happened and who is responsible. There...
