  1. Tony Wilson the producer came to see D Rose at the Bull & Gate in Kentish Town one night. The band got the call shortly after for a slot on the Friday Rock Show. They went to Maida Vale to the BBC studios there and recorded four tracks for the show which Tommy Vance duly aired on the 22/04/88. This helped the band immensely as they had a gig shortly after at the Sir George Robey pub as support to the Pink Fairies who never showed up. Luckily for D Rose, most of the crowd which filled the place had actually come to see them anyway and a great night was had by all. There were a few more plays with Liz Kershaw later in the year as she played the tracks a few times on the BBC. Members were: Tony Rocker (Vocals), John O'Leary (Drums), Andy ***** (Guitars), Jake *****(Bass) Tony Rocker went to live in Germany and forged a career there releasing a number of records over the years. John O'Leary played with 80's glam outfit The Gunslingers, NWOBHM band Ritual, featuring on the 1985 album 'Cry in the night' plus numerous singles, and then formed the band Mortice, releasing an album called 'Mayhem' featuring Billy Rankin (Nazareth) and Bernie Shaw (Uriah Heep). Nothing is known of the other two members.
  2. Tommy confuses LP title with the label.
