Ben's fifth visit to nationally syndicated radio show eTown was taped for broadcast the week of May 10. He was joined by Michael Ward on guitar for the entire semi-acoustic performance. House band The eTones led by hosts Nick and Helen Forster backed on the first three songs and the traditional ensemble closer which featured Sonya Kitchell on co-lead vocals. A string quartet (Joel Pargman - violin, Alyssa Park - violin, Caroline Buckman - viola, Timothy Loo - cello) played on "Waiting For You", "Morning Yearning", "Please Bleed" and Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home." They had to retake "Morning Yearning" due to technical difficulties at the end of the first take. Consequently, the first take along with "Engraved Invitation", "Reason To Mourn" and "Please Bleed" were omitted from the broadcast.
