KVGM “The Last Wave” (9/29/19)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (9/29/19)

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

Welcome to the world of business and money and profit margins – it’s the world we currently inhabit, and it has its fair share of problems. Fortunately, we’ve got smooth video game music to help soothe the pain, and when someone tells you “Game over, man!” – just remember, you can always continue. Nobuo Uematsu makes his second appearance on the show with an even smoother jam than before, and the request line continues to ring off the hook so keep ’em coming!

What’s an Air Force situational comedy? Why is Osaka the greatest town? Is virtual scuba diving stress free? Are murder mystery games family friendly? So many questions, not a lot of answers, but a ton of straight up jams by a ton of legendary composers, including Ryu Umemoto, Yuzo Koshiro, and Yoko Kanno.

While Hammock is off somewhere along the coast celebrating his birthday, you can celebrate the music of Tsukasa Tawada and Ryuji Sasai, the relaxing vibes of fishing resorts and golf courses, the spicy nightlife of Faeria, the intensity of naval and space warfare, and the mystery of the MURDER MYSTERY RPG. A special thanks to the Legacy Music Hour for a shout out on their latest episode. And a special thanks to each and every one of our listeners. High five.

Golf? Check. Tennis? Check. Casinos? Check. Bars? Check. We hit a lot of familiar territory on this week’s show but also explore caverns with therapeutic hot mineral springs, contemplate the many options of the world map, and seek to achieve the art of balance in our everyday lives. If you tap an armadillo on the top of their shell, they will pop right into the air. I’m not suggesting you go around scaring armadillos but it’s a fascinating sight. Okay, thanks, enjoy the show!
