The telegram from Van der Graaf Generator received by Room at the Ritz on the evening of the Melody Maker Regional Heats. Room had supported VDGG at the Ritz some weeks earlier. It was, and remains, a truly nice gesture.

A few press cuttings from the Bournemouth Evening Echo in 1969 showing some of Room's gigs in that year.
