KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/31/19)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/31/19)

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.

It’s warming up out there, the flowers are in bloom – spring time is upon us! And what better way to celebrate than with the Last Wave, bringing you tons of jams devoted to vacation, smooth continents, tennis courts, leisure time, and Yoshi being so dang cute. We’ve got Famicoms and Super Famicoms, Playstations and Playstation Vitas (which, I’m still not convinced actually exist). A little something for everyone.

Lots of PlayStation 2 jams this week but also familiar jaunts to the Super Famicom and PC-98. If the audio is a bit subdued, it’s because my wife was sleeping…next to the studio, of course. There is no actual sleeping space in the KVGM studio. Well, okay, technically, the floor is a potential sleeping space but there is no bed in the KVGM studio. There’s only…a hammock. Wink wink.

Whether you’re sailing across the ocean or experiencing a blind date in a dark dungeon somewhere, the Last Wave has you covered. We confirm that yetis are, in fact, very chill, and that pinball jazz is worth listening to if you can get close enough to the machine. Keep feeding us those requests and we’ll keep playing them on the show!

Lots of unknowns this week but it’s the unknown that makes life interesting. It keeps us on our toes. And sometimes, the unknown creates sweet VGM jams. Takeshi Abo is back, Minesweeper is still boring, and golf games really are livin’ that Weekend at Bernie’s life.

Currently living in a snowbound landscape? Well, KVGM is under a foot and a half of snow but we’re still managing to find plenty of hot tracks to melt away the gloom. The request line is poppin’, Takeshi Abo is jammin’, Summon Night: Twin Age is resonatin’. Tons of emotion.
