This week, host Craig Lyndall talks with Eric Sandy about the deadliest house fire in Cleveland history — nine lost their lives that night — and the man at the center of the story: Antun Lewis.
Lewis was convicted of setting the deadly blaze a few years ago based on shady testimony from jailhouse informants. Now, a new jailhouse snitch has come forward and might be Lewis' ticket to freedom.

Earlier this week, local jazz guitarist Dan Bankhurst played a sold out show at Nighttown to celebrate the release of his new CD At First Sight, a beautifully recorded album of instrumentals. Yesterday, he stopped at House of Blues' Unity Room to play a Scene session for our staff. The four-song set included tracks from At First Sight.
An Ohio man took his marriage proposal to a whole new and festive level when he popped the question to his girlfriend with carved pumpkins.
Dayton's Zach Stoddard carved the words "Will You Marry Me?" into five pumpkins, strategically placed on a hillside at the annual Stoddard Avenue Pumpkin Glow. Much to the delight of hundreds of Pumpkin Glow attendees, Stoddard's girlfriend of three years, Lauren Brennenman, said yes immediately.
Event organizers told The Dayton Daily News that the proposal was a first for the annual event, which features hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns.
Stoddard said he wanted to pop the question in this clever way because October is his girlfriend's favorite month and because it seemed appropriate to ask Brenneman if she wanted to become a Stoddard at an event by the same name.
