KVGM “The Last Wave” (5/31/20)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (5/31/20)

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.

Summer is approaching, the weather is heating up, the jams are already hot, but at the same time, very chill. It’s the perfect balance. My wife and I are embarking on a journey into the desert of Aqua City Island – Crimson Sands, to be exact – for a little exploration and soul connection. Social distancing, if you will…well, minus my wife. But I hope you all enjoy these jams in my absence!

It’s another killer line-up, full of the kind of music you come to expect from the Last Wave. And we’re being a little more proactive on social media and taking on the “30 Days of VGM” challenge on Twitter. Follow us @kvgmradio to check out what we’ve been picking so far. And just a friendly reminder…practice kindness.

While parts of the world are attempting to return to some form of normalcy, it’s still business as usual here at the Last Wave, as we keep pumping out the smooth jams for YOU! This week, we give a little extra love to the Nintendos 64 and DS, while giving normal love to the Nintendo Wii. Also a shout out to special guest host of KVGM’s “Pixel Vibration”, Oke, and their newest radio venture, Dream Console, a VGM-centric show on Noods Radio. Check it out!

Streets of Rage 4 came out last week, which is the first game I’ve been super excited about playing since Zelda: Breath of the Wild. My wife and I have been beatin’ thugs up and corrupt cops…and I love the fact that you can customize your food. My wife always seems to hit me with her special “on accident” and gulps down food at FULL HEALTH! Good grief…but the soundtrack has some jams that will definitely be making an appearance on the Last Wave, get ready.
