    EP29 | The Station Nightclub Fire, 19 Years Later: A Replay with John Laurenti, of WHJY Providence, & friend of Dr Metal, Mike Gonsalves

    EP29 | The Station Nightclub Fire, 19 Years Later: A Replay with John Laurenti, of WHJY Providence, & friend of Dr Metal, Mike Gonsalves

    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.

    Never forget what happened so it will never happen again.

    Episode 13 from 3/5/2021:

    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 and colleague, John Laurenti.  We worked together at WZLX in Boston and, as you will hear, we have a long history and strong connections to New England radio. John has worked at WAAF, WBOS, WODS, WHEB, WGIR, and was at WHJY in Providence for 17 years.

    He was friends with Mike Gonsalves, the WHJY DJ known as Doctor Metal, who was one of 100 who died at the Station. We talk about his memories of Doc, the venue, the fire, the impact on the community, the part live radio plays in times of disaster, the evolution of rock, and we name check about 20 radio people throughout. We spoke on the weekend of the 18th anniversary. This is our conversation, our long conversation. It was even longer. I edited for time.

    EP28 | The Station Nightclub Fire, 19 Years Later: A Replay with Tom Stewart, Station Fire Survivor

    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.

    Never forget what happened so it will never happen again.

    Episode 12 from 2/26/2021:

    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.   

    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.

    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.

    Special guest, Scott James - author of Trial By Fire: A Devastating Tragedy, 100 Lives Lost, and A 15-Year Search For Truth - http://scottjameswriter.com

    On the night of Feb 20, 2003, a deadly fire rocked the small town of West Warwick, Rhode Island. One hundred people were killed, 230 injured, and an entire state was left grieving. The tragedy thrust the town into the national spotlight. News crews from around the world descended, clamoring for a look at the disaster that had been caught on camera by a local TV photographer. The Station Fire remains the deadliest rock show in US history.

    Author Scott James describes what he discovered over his 10-year investigation into the Station night club fire, about what really happened, and how authorities rushed to judgement.

    EP26 | Crime of the Massachusetts Kind: One Year Anniversary Replay of Episode One, Part One - The Stacked Jack of Death, Whitey Bulger

    EP26 | Crime of the Massachusetts Kind: One Year Anniversary Replay of Episode One, Part One - The Stacked Jack of Death, Whitey Bulger

    Episode One. How it all began, one year ago today. It is the original show - I didn't edit or tweak it at all.  25 episodes in, it's evident that show has grown and morphed. Thank you for listening.

    Enjoy this "replay" - Episode One, Part One.

    One of the most notorious gangsters in US history, James J. "Whitey" Bulger, Jr ruled the streets of Boston with an iron fist. He was the ruthless leader of the Winter Hill Gang. Murder Kingpin. The stacked jack of death (he did pride himself in being physically fit). The lord of the underworld. As a fixture in organized crime in the East, he ran a criminal enterprise for decades; sometimes he’s called the Irish Godfather. His status as an FBI informant kept him out of prison for racketeering until the early 90s when federal indictments for a litany of crimes were coming down -- including the murders of 19 people. 
    That's when he simply disappeared.

    EP25 | Two Planes Left Boston On September 11, 2001

    EP25 | Two Planes Left Boston On September 11, 2001

    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 from Boston full of local people who wouldn't make it back home. It affected so many families here. We are very sensitive to this. I know I am. 
    Flight 11 from Boston to Los Angeles was full of people from Massachusetts. Of the 92 people total on board, 8 of the 11 member crew and 47 of the passengers on board were from Massachusetts.
    Flight 175 Boston to Los Angeles with 26 passengers were from Massachusetts

    I have been thinking a lot about that day and wanted to talk about it. Thanks for listening.

    EP24 | Laura Jane Rosenthal: Things Are Never What They Seem, Framingham, Massachusetts

    EP24 | Laura Jane Rosenthal: Things Are Never What They Seem, Framingham, Massachusetts

    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 everything to do with a cold, controlling, and obsessive husband.

Professionalism shines through

I enjoy other casual-style “friends talking” true crime podcasts. But your skill at commanding the mike sets your podcast apart.

Crime of the Truest kind

I just found this Podcast and it’s perfect. It’s actually a story from a person capable of telling a story.
She is smart and has a wonderful voice and knows what she’s talking about which makes it wonderful to listen to the podcast.
The content of the individual stories are sometimes not aware to me, but still fascinating because of her knowledge. I love her description of New England and the people it goes beyond anything available anywhere on the podcast scene.
I hope it returns, there are so few actually talented people doing podcasts.

Just started binge listening after I heard about Crime of the truest kind while listening to Morbid. Anngelle does a thorough job detailing the cases she covers. Her voice sets for an eerie listen. Well done!
