On Thursday 15 June 2017, each BBC local radio station in England erected a blue plaque on a building to commemorate a local music legend on BBC Music Day. In Manchester, the plaque was unveiled on Alan Erasmus's property at 86 Palatine Road, the first home of Factory Records.
Peter Saville performed the unveiling ceremony and plenty of Factory Records alumni were in attendance including Vin Cassidy, Bruce Mitchell, Shaun Ryder, Bez, Mark Day, Rowetta and Jez Kerr.
