When I was young, one of my first major crushes was on Pat Benatar. After the release of her second album, I went out and I bought the first album and listened to both of them until they were warped.

While I listened, I used to stare at the album cover and admire her beauty. I was in love with her until she announced that she was going to marry her guitar player, Neil Giraldo. I always appreciated the music that she created even though she broke my heart.

Pat, along with her husband Neil Giraldo, are embarking on a co-headlining tour with Melissa Etheridge. They will be at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the site of the original Woodstock, on Sunday, August 25th.

We have "Win 'em before you can buy 'em" tickets to give away all week. To win, download the Whale mobile app. It's free in your app store. Each weekday at 7 a.m. we will send out the Pat Benatar song of the day.

Around 7:20 I will ask you to call in and identify the Pat Benatar song of the day. If you are the ninth caller in at 607-723-9996, and you can correctly identify the song of the day, you'll win the tickets.

Tickets for that show will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. through the Bethel Woods website.
