KVGM "The Last Wave" (2/23/20)

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 on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave. Speaking of the anthropomorphic craze in kids' cartoons in the '80s/'90s, how many listeners remember Battle Beasts? I collected them as a young Hammock, as well as M.U.S.C.L.E. in their plastic garbage bins. Of course, my parents sold them in a garage sale when I was off in College World and I will never forgive them for as long as I live (kidding). Biker Mice From Mars wasn't something I was into but I did enjoy the Cowboys of Moo Mesa. DOWNLOAD -  THE LAST WAVE (2/23/20) Playlist Unrequited Love - Takeshi Abo (Memories Off Duet: 1s

Mellow Meadows is where all the chill horses hang out on Aqua City Island, eating hay and running in the fields. When I was a little Hammock, I rode a lot of horses...as a bigger Hammock, I don't ride as many but still enjoy it when given the opportunity. But I do not enjoy taxi cab rides, nor do I want to simulate being a taxi cab driver. BUT THAT'S WHAT THE JAMS ARE FOR! DOWNLOAD -  THE LAST WAVE (2/16/20) Playlist The Emotion - H

Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave. Someone once asked me, "Hey Hammock, what's makes a jam a smooth jam?" and I had to think about it for a minute. I had to consider all the possibilities. Because it's true...a jam can be a jam but still not be a smooth jam. I think it's the right balance of a good beat, some kind of brass instrument, the guitar shouldn't be overwhelming, and last but not be least, you should not feel anxious listening to it. Plenty of video game music out there makes me feel anxious but when you pop in a smooth jam, all that anxiety melts away and you're le

Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave. Another week, another half-hour dose of SMOOTH~! -- this time, we visit Fox Junction for a completely chill 90's-esque jam, we play non-golf golf tracks, hit up that beautiful Bandai WonderSwan, and passive-aggressively explain to our virtual roommate that pantry space is limited. And remember,  love is a beach...sometimes...
