A week ago I wrote an article about the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW TICKET process . . . Many fans were disappointed including me. The ANTIQUE ROADSHOW responded and clarified things . . .

I received a new comment from the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW and I am going to paste it below.   Also they sent me a personal invitation to be one of the 'media' attendees.  No such request was made by me.  I believe that is a result of MyDesert.com blog and my national exposure through AuthorsDen.com//lkcraft sight on AuthorsDen.com which recieves over a million hits a week.  I posted my blog comment on there as well. I did accept the invitation and look forward to attending. I'll be writing about it. 

I know I said I was so over not getting tickets, but as we all know . . . that's easy to say when you have no other choice but move on.  I welcome this opportunity to attend, but I have not lost my sensitivity in knowing how it feels when 100% of my friends didn't get tickets and I too was rejected.  However that said, the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW has worked hard at explaining their ticket process.  The large public response to tickets is a testimony to fondness of this special show and venue.  To the residents that got tickets, you are lucky for the odds are definately not in one's favor.  However, it costs nothing to apply and that my friends make it well worth the effort. 

By the way, did you notice there are a couple tickets on Ebay.com right now for $1,000 . . . Antique Roadshow is trying to do something about it . . .

As publicist for Antiques Roadshow, I'm thrilled we have so many loyal fans in the Palm Springs area, and I want to set the record straight regarding ticket distribution. It is important that your readers know Roadshow tickets are free, and we prohibit their sale, except for fund raising to support our local PBS station partners. When we can track down individuals selling Roadshow tickets on eBay, we invalidate their tickets, and the holder will not be admitted to our event—no matter how much they paid.

Please be assured that the 3,400 Palm Springs ticket recipients were selected at random by a third party, not by Roadshow, from a total of 15,000 applications. About 10% of the recipients are from the Palm
Springs area; 80% from other parts of California; and about 10% from out of state. The selection process was fair and impartial—and some of your neighbors are apparently keeping their good luck to themselves!

Hi, brightlythree,
I am indeed the publicist for Antiques Roadshow, email: judy_matthews.wgbh.org! Thanks so much for letting your subscribers know our ticketing policies and how seriously we take them. We've worked hard to make it as difficult as possible to "scalp" Roadshow tickets—one of the reasons we only mail tickets three weeks before each event. And we use a holographic icon on the tickets themselves to make them just about impossible to duplicate. But the best way to put the eBay scalpers out of business is to refuse to buy their tickets.
