about

On a Saturday evening, with temperatures sub-zero, and snow falling outside her home in Newfoundland, Canada, musician Allison Crowe telephoned the kind and crazy crew of "The Byron Eggers Show" in balmy Delray, Florida.

The radio show, broadcast on PowerTalk 1420 WDJA, broadcasts directly to Delray, Boca Raton and all the Palm Beaches - and, via online streaming, to the world.

There's great camraderie between co-hosts Byron Eggers, H-Love, Billy Hitz (author of "Pathetic Poetry"), and, on this night, special visitor, Captain Hook.

There's some chat amongst the WDJA folks before the CNN newsbreak, and they played "Going Home Tonight" off Allison Crowe's album, "Spiral".

We pick up the broadcast after the news-break, when Allison, under a bit of a Winter flu/cold cloud, calls in to the studio. The banter mixes with a selection of songs, all from "Spiral" - starting with the title track, followed by "I Don't Know", "Why", and, closing the segment - "Throw Your Arms Around Me".

It's a sunny blast of fun, whatever the season and your locale!

Going Home Tonight

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I know the night is on us
and la lune it moves above
just try not to close your eyes

The windows float around
and the ice flies by our heads
and skirts the surface now

And you've seen
the darker side of me
and you still find a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

Le soleil is a reminder
that what once was cold can warm
the dark can fall behind her
it's in your shadow now
the winter's at its end
and all can fall to blindness of the freezing rain

and I see the darker side of me
and I still find a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

Forget what you have learned here
it doesn't matter now
not while the grass is greening

L'oiseau is loudly singing
and the sun becomes her home
and everything is fallen
the curtains drop as she takes hold

And sees the darker side of me
and she still finds a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

And I see the darker side of me
and I still find a light
it's not much further now
We're going home tonight

We’re going home
Tonight
