- Peter was asphyxiated at the end of the show when the drum riser got stuck up by the ceiling. He ended up in the Vincent Charity Hospital.
- Nights Out At The Agora was a project between the Agora and local radio stations, in Cleveland's case, WMMS, that recorded live sets from artists and offered those shows to partner radio stations for broadcast. "If a radio station wants to put on the hour, we send the tapes weekly and the station makes a commitment giving the show a certain amount of promos... plus they give the network three spots in the body of the show which the network can either use or sell. The station benefits because they keep three spots. And in Cleveland it's WMMS jocks that emcee our shows. And we tend to advertise on the stations that are
running our shows" (Radio Report, 11/23/78) This operation eventually developed into "On Stage at the Agora," a local TV broadcast simulcast on radio. This KISS show was booked under the auspices of  Nights Out at the Agora' so may have been recorded since mostly new acts were featured early on (the show ran 1974-84). This show circulates as a SBD.
