Notes: This is the WLS FM radio broadcast, that was aired live as it happened on July 4, 1979 during a snowstorm. The storm caused a lot of problems with the broadcast so the quality is so-so but as live recordings of the MONOLITH tour are rare this is a diamond in the rough literally. The recordings that were circulated of this show came to be known as "Monolith In The Storm".

Nice curiosity here indeed... Anyway, is there any chance posting here a better sounding boot from the tour of "Monolith" album, which I think is a bit underated among Kansas albuns?
Cheers and prog on,

Hi, hard to find a show from this tour (This one I have). Maybe you find this one: 12/05/79 Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque. I think it´s the only other one taped from the Monolith tour. It would be great to hear it.
Best wishes

Broadcast as it happened, during a snowstorm IN JULY?!? As far as I know (and I lived in the area), there have been no snowstorms in July at Alpine Valley...wrong date, maybe?
