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 was no trial that could have helped set the record straight so the debate rages on.
Special guest, Tom Stewart - New England-based comedian and host of My Paranormal Story podcast - myparanormalstory.net. Tom shares his story of how he made it out of the Station Fire and its impact on his life and the community.
Next episode, I speak to John Laurenti, former Music Director and DJ at WHJY in Providence, about the Station, his friend and fellow DJ - the late Mike "The Doctor" Gonsalves, and the impact on the community. This is part of a three part series on the Station Nightclub Fire.
