Who among us has never spent Sundays perched on their father’s lap as he read the additional dates for Neil Diamond or the latest schedule for P.J. Harvey? Remember when your father first sat you on his knee and described the cities and dates for Ted Nugent? Will you ever forget that feeling of incredible bonding when he clarified which shows were headline dates and which ones were special guest appearances with Lynyrd Skynyrd? We think not.

And now you’re sitting down on a Sunday to look over the latest schedules on Pollstar.com. No matter if you’re browsing the dates for Faster Pussycat, or trying to pick out which night you want to see Hog Molly, you’re carrying on a Sunday tradition that stretches back almost three quarters of a century. And you have your own child with you and you’re showing the little rascal how to pull up dates for Electric Light Orchestra and Mad Caddies. Wow! Just like a Norman Rockwell painting!

Yes, nothing warms our heart more than to see you and your little ones gathered around the monitor on a Sunday, looking up dates for Eric Clapton or Ben Folds. It’s because of families like yours that we go that extra mile, make that extra effort and operate this Web site, not just Monday through Friday, but ever day of the week, including Sundays.

Of course, we never had time for families of our own, all our relatives think we passed away years ago and even our own dogs don’t recognize us. But you won’t hear us complaining. As long as you and yours are satisfied, as long as you can find the dates you need, whether it’s listings for Martin Sexton, or Robin Trower, that’s all that matters.

But if you don’t start buying stuff at the Pollstar.com store, we’re going to have to rethink this entire “free content on the Web” concept. Come on, only $16 for a T-shirt or hat, plus free shipping. Not only will your children love you, but we’ll love you.

A T-shirt or hat, plus our conditional adulation. Such a deal! Whoever said money can’t buy love has never shopped at Pollstar.com. Buy some affection today.
