Best of R8B on 1150AM from September 13th, 2007 with musical guest Jon Auer

Jon Auer of The Posies returned to Radio8Ball on September 13, 2007 for a series of questions from some of our favorite guests from other shows, including songwriters Scott Taylor, Willie Wisely, Mike Ruekberg, and Robyn Lynn Thoren. Willie, Mike and Robyn are all from Minneapolis and you’ll notice a Minnesotan theme running through this show. Funny how that works.

Here’s the setlist:

1. Lady Sweet
2. Dream All Day
3. Four Letter Word
4. Swinging Party
5. Wicked World

5 of Cups (Disappointment)

52-5 of Cups

Musical jack of all trades Mike Ruekberg (Rex Daisy, Shmushkin) delivers the 5 of Cups.

They Might Be Giants have a line from one of their early songs that goes,
if it wasn’t for disappointments, I wouldn’t have any appointments“.

Like that line, this song from the Adrian Brody film “Dummy” puts the sweet in bittersweet.
