Default Good Vibrations, Good Morning....

Hopefully, NASA sends up the morning wakeup call as an OGG (MP3) instead
of playing it over the ratty comm.

Did NASA pay the Beach Boys a royalty for broadcasting their song?

Or, is NASA avoiding the royalty by only broadcasting a portion of the
song?

Or, did the Beach Boys give their permission to play it? It's just good
advertising.

Or, is the wakeup call a don't ask, don't tell, royalty free broadcast;-)

Yeah, and if it's over the regular comm the quality might be so bad that
the astronauts might prefer not to hear the entire song. Or, maybe the
astronauts have their own copy of it, so they can play the entire high
quality version if they want to listen to it.

If I still have enough brain cells functioning to remember correctly, I
think you only need to play 8 measures to have to pay.

My guess is 99% of all artist wave the fee -- if there is one.

Good morning or good evening depending upon your location. I want to ask you the most important question of your life. Your joy or sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good OM History 0 April 22nd 05 08:37 AM
