BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding heard the band sometime in 2011 and got in touch with Mad Dog to ask them to send over CDs, since then he has played them several times on the BBC. He is quoted as saying "one of the most exciting discoveries of 2011" notwithstanding the fact that the band have three albums under their belt and many years of performance behind them.
In addition to their usual local and national gigs, the official Mad Dog 'Happy Bus' tour of the UK took place in November 2012 and featured friend Cosmo Jarvis in support (who penned Waiting on the Hill from The Whirling Dervish).
