A lot of people ask me “Hammock, why so smooth?” and I always go back to the day I had brunch with Carlos Santana in Aqua City and we discussed his 1999 hit, “Smooth” featuring Rob Thomas. And I asked Santana the same question – I said, “Carlos, why Smooth?” and he said it’s just like the ocean under the moon. And that resonated with me. And from that day forward, I vowed to only play the smoothest video game jams on the planet. Not only for Carlos and Rob…but for all the future listeners out there. So thanks for listening.

December is upon us, like a wolf at the door…but a chill wolf who just wants to be cuddled by a warm fire. We’re still cranking out the smooth summer-y jams as the holiday fever begins to sweep the nation, including, of course, mahjong, golf, NBA jams and a track made especially for the horse lover in all of us. If you’ve got a holiday jam, send it to us via the 24/7 request line and we’ll play it on the show. Otherwise, it’s business as usual here at the Last Wave.
