It’s the middle of the night. You wake up with a start. There’s a presence in the room -- watching you. You sense that it is evil. But you are paralyzed and powerless. It’s your worst nightmare. Is there help?

KFAI will be broadcasting this double dose of the Listening Lounge in lieu of Art Matters this evening. Night Frights will air at 7pm.Painting: The Nightmare (1781) by Henry Fuseli.
