Night Fright Tonight

Last Wednesday while I was in the Sudbury area, I had the pleasure of meeting Night Fright radio show host Brent Holland. I actually met him in the studio in the middle of his live 2 hour broadcast last week. Fascinating experience. For the first hour of his show I was listening to Brent interview three intrepid gentlemen from the U.S. who run I arrived at the studio at approximately 11 and got to listen to the rest of the show across from Brent in the studio.

And because there were a few minutes left at the end of the show, Brent and I chatted a bit about Campus Chills, an anthology of horror stories set on campuses across Canada.

Broadcast from the CKLU studios at Laurentian University every Wednesday from 10 PM until midnight in Sudbury, Ontario, the show is syndicated to affiliates in Sydney and Antigosh, Nova Scotia, Thunder Bay and Waterloo, Ontario, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lethridge, Alberta, Abbotsford, Salmo, and Prince George, B.C.

But you can also listen online.

The first week of May I will be back on Night Fright Radio for a full two hour show in May talking about Campus Chills, hopefully with a handful of contributors from the anthology.

But speaking of contributors, the very talented Steve Vernon is going to be on tonight's show.

Along with being one of the wonderful contributors to Campus Chills (above is a picture of him reading from his story "Old Spice Love Knot" at the book launch in Halifax at Dalhousie University Bookstore), Steve's recent books include Haunted Harbours, Halifax Haunts, Wicked Woods and Maritime Monsters. Touted as "Nova Scotia's hardest working horror author" Steve is not only a great guy, but a phenomenally talented storyteller and fascinating to listen to.

I can't wait to tune in tonight (well, at least listen online, since it isn't broadcast in my area just yet) between 10 PM and midnight to listen to the show.
