An Austin Texas man has been charged with arson after allegedly lighting a community radio station on fire…

Paul Webster Feinstein, 24, has been charged with second-degree felony arson for the Jan. 5 fire that caused $300,000 damage to the studios of 91.7 FM KOOP. He faces from two to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

Feinstein told investigators that he was “very unhappy” about the changes to his playlist, said Austin Fire Department Battalion Chief Greg Nye. The songs were intended for an Internet broadcast that occurs when the station is off the air.

The story, in Firehouse.com goes on to say that this was the 3rd fire at the station in recent years. The 2 previous had been accidents, but this arson was discovered by a specially trained dog who ‘sniffed out’ the presence of gasoline at the scene.
