I about jumped out of my skull when at the end of HBOs show 'Divorce' "I'll Bet He's Nice" popped on during the credits. I've heard random songs (including some random Beach Boys) but for some reason this one I just couldn't believe.

Happy to hear it, and hopefully this will get the song and the Love You album some much needed props.

The same show used Dennis's "You and I" a little over a year ago.

I sense there are folks behind the scenes finally being able to work hard to make stuff like this happen, to make the *brand* something more than Full House reruns.

Shoot, you're right. I had forgotten about that.

Credit to the music supervisors and the teams of people who secure all the rights to use songs in episodes like this, especially when a song fits a scene so well and works. I doubt BRI did much of anything to facilitate placements like this or even the Mad Men episode a few years ago. If producers, directors, or members of a show's creative team want a specific song, they go through the process of securing the rights and paying the fees to use it. It's not usually a case of BRI, or Apple, or other similar corporate entities actively "plugging" songs to be used in TV or film. The music supervisors most often go out and get the songs they want.

Howie, you are one of my absolute favorite people in Beach Boys fandom and I wish the group would follow more of your wishes.

However, the article does have a mistake in my opinion. The follow sentence is incorrect...

"The tune, which was featured on The Beach Boys Love album, marked the final time Brian Wilson was completely in charge of the material and production of an all-new group album."

This was true until 2012, but isn't it fair to say that That's Why God Made The Radio had Brian in charge?

I’d say Joe Thomas was essentially the co-producer on a good hunk if not most of the TWGMTR sessions. I think it was more a PR/political thing to give him the (relatively odd) credit of “Recorded by Joe Thomas” instead of listing him as a co-producer.

The ironic part is he had less to do with NPP but revived more credit

"....featured on The Beach Boys Love album, marked...."

which of course pre-dates The Beatles Love album considerably

needless to say we're here to point up the humour evident in them, as applicable, which can be counted upon

What's your given name?

Mine's Howie Edelson.
When Brian Wilson picks up the phone he says, "Hi Howie."

What does he call you?

I was also under the impression that Love You was released because Carl finished recording and mixing the album. I could totally be wrong about this though, just something I vaguely remember reading about.

Seeing as how you post 0.077 times per day (but when you *do* post you waste everybody's time by inexplicably antagonizing the guy who wrote the liner notes for the latest BB release), maybe it's best to not speak for us on this board and what "we're" here to do.
