On February 20, 2003, one of the deadliest fires in American history took place at the Station Nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The pandemonium started when the band Great White's pyrotechnics ignited the nightclub, killing 100 people and devastating the lives of hundreds more.
My guest tonight is bestselling author and three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist Scott James, whose new book, Trial By Fire investigates all the central figures with firsthand accounts, interviews, and court documents.
Scott explores the rush to judgment about what happened that left the victims, their families, and a community desperate for justice.
Although the fire itself lasted minutes, the search for the truth would take years. TRIAL BY FIRE: A Devastating Tragedy, 100 Lives Lost, and a 15-Year Search for Truth with my guest Scott James.

Hello Lovebirds! On this episode of The Necronomicast, I welcome back to the program writer/producer Mark Onspaugh. I had Mark on a few episodes ago with his "Christmas Ghost Stories". That episode was so well received, that I invited Mark back to chat about the dark history of Valentine's Day and highlight his book entitled Dark Valentines, a collection of writings and short stories. Mark will read two stories, a short one about the budding of a new love, and a long form story about the nostalgia of a long lost love. Throw in a discussion about the odd relationships in Peanuts cartoons, and a visit from the ghost of Chet Baker, and you have yourself a wonderful way for you and your sweetheart to spend an hour of your time.
