KVGM "The Last Wave" (5/9/21)

Image
Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio in sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave. If we've learned anything from horse racing simulators, it's that they know how to jam out, especially when that simulator is simulated on a Super Famicom. Plus Yasuhiro Kawakami is back bringin' that buddy cop funk, the PC-Engine CD is here, women's soccer on the Nintendo DS, even Mario Kart makes an appearance (shout out to my guy, Shy Guy!). Plus much much more!  DOWNLOAD -  THE LAST WAVE (5/9/21) Playlist Menu - Unknown (P-Kara, Playstation Portable) J  -  Yoshiko Hosono (Vasteel, PC-Engine CD) Goal! - Masahiro Fukuzawa (Kouenji Joshi Soccer 2, Nintendo DS) Pa

Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave. This episode is dedicated to long-time listener and support of the Last Wave, Vin Diesel. We've got not one but TWO street racing tracks, and an unused Virtua Cop track (because Vin played a cop in A Man Apart). But for the non-Vin listeners, we've got Snoopy and friends, soccer, dating simulator action, and, of course, a very patriotic handheld quiz game.

Praise such jams as "Misty" and "Parts Shop", and glory be to Katsuhiro Hayashi and Yoko Kanno, jam masters among us. Worship at the church of Falcom Sound Team J.D.K. - and we all know what the J.D.K. stands for. And remember, if you donate to the Patreon, you will be blessed with even more of the smootheth video game music. Amen.  DOWNLOAD -  THE LAST WAVE (4/4/21) Playlist Southern Twilight ~ Dance on the Cape of Good Hope - Yoko Kanno (Uncharted Waters
