KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/29/20)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/29/20)

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.

Allergies kicked my butt this week but hey, spring is here, the flowers are in bloom, the weather is warming up. And sure, we may not be able to go outside and play but that doesn’t we can’t celebrate. Here at the Last Wave, we’re welcoming spring with open arms and tons of smooth jams, from your dad’s favorite sport to my sister’s favorite sport to Jimmy “The Whirlwind” White’s favorite sport. Lots of sports, loads of chill jams, come and hang out with us from a distance…even though Hammock sounds like he’s about to fall asleep.

The KVGM studio is closed in order to keep everyone safe, including the summer interns…but the jams keep coming. If you’re stuck in isolation, hopefully these tracks will help calm some of your anxiety or inspire you to throw a one person dance party. Remember, wash your hands, no high fives, and jam out! (actually, jam in…as in, indoors) The request line is still open so keep those favorites coming, and we’ll be sure to play them on the show.

This week, we’re keeping the energy up…but we’re also bringing it down when it needs to be brought back to down. Everybody needs a little extra energy these days but you don’t want to overexert yourself, especially as the planet continues to crumble all around us. But we’ve always got sultry visual novels to keep us preoccupied while the world burns. Hey, let’s come together, make some smart decisions, and try to save our future, our children’s future, our pet’s future…the future of all living organisms because, one way or another, the Earth will save itself from us. And with that, enjoy the jams!

This week, we’ve got a heavy dose of jams, which is exactly what the doctor ordered. Sure, we’re living in scary times – even Aqua City Island isn’t immune from the current state of the world. But at least, the Last Wave can provide a little bit of distraction, lulling you into the sweet and sultry embrace of the smoothest video game music on the planet. Come sail away with us!

We’ve featured a track from the game on the Last Wave but we take a deeper dive, exploring all that hot air balloon simulation has to offer. Thanks to Bryan and Gene for having me on, it was a lot of fun and the soundtrack is very chill and unique.
