KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/26/20)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/26/20)

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.

This week, we hit rock bottom…briefly…but maybe we’ll score those free buffet passes. From the sad casino to the jammin’ airport, we bounce around the world of smooth VGM with some great tracks. Dreaming in amber color has never looked so good…oh, and by the way, my best friend Kody the bottlenose dolphin is running a special all week long at Reef Daddy’s. Endless mozzarella sticks only $4.99. Tell ’em Hammock sent you!

Butlers with magic talking guns? I mean, come on, it’s such a great concept…not only are you a butler with a gun…you’re a butler with a magic gun. That speaks to you. Wow. Hollywood has seemingly run out of fresh ideas but geez, an adaptation of Bullet Butlers on the big screen is guaranteed $$$$$. Casting Gerard Butler seems obvious. Look, big-time Hollywood producers out there who listen to the show,  hit us up…kvgmradio@gmail.com…let’s make this happen and get filthy rich together!

As we sit here at the pinnacle of the Last Wave’s existence, drinking Arnold Palmtrees with none other than Craig Stadler, we look out across the console landscape, to the Saturns and Xboxes and Gamecubes…each a star in their own right, full of the kind of jams that make it all worth while. What’s next for us? Craig and Hammock, that is. Maybe we’ll just hang out in this moment and enjoy what we have and all that we’ve accomplished. But we must also look to the future, to all the waves that will continue to crash…smoothly, of course. We’re not trying to surf out here. Life is like a lazy river…just flow with it.

Welcome to the next decade, the year 2020. The Last Wave is back and better than ever…we’ve got a new microphone set-up in the studio (let us know how it sounds because I can’t tell the difference). And of course, we’ve got plenty of the smoothest jams to bring in the new year, which is the most important thing. My resolution? More smooth jams. Easy. And to increase my iron intake.
