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. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch…the Last Wave.

Have you ever wondered what a Chinese adaptation of Twin Peaks would sound like? Are you pro-Mitsuda? Do you play Uno with strangers? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, take a listen to this week’s Last Wave.

A lot of sequels this week, some minimal detective work, the fractured system that is public education, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s jeans, and so much more. Please join me, won’t you?

Once again, we reflect on important themes in living a fulfilled life, including how to keep your cool during a zombie apocalypse, taking time to set up your own person exhibition mode, the serenity of the ancient ruin, and the feeling of champoo (champagne + shampoo). All this and more, backed to an incredible set of smooth video game music.
