KVGM “The Last Wave” (10/25/20)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (10/25/20)

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.

Another week, another half hour of jams. Lots of unknowns but the unknowns in life make things a little more interesting, less predictable. We’ve got a Perfect Stranger spinoff theme, walking pachi balls, TOEIC training guides, and even snickerdoodle cookie cakes, yum yum yum. If you keep listenin’, we’ll keep jammin’ out the jams!

We’re on our way to episode 200 now, and the jams keep comin’, from the funkiness of the arcade to the mellow moods of the Sega Dreamcast, we’ve got jams from Ryu Umemoto and possibly THE Ken Tamura (still unconfirmed). And we’re going through a little backlog of requests so if you’ve requested something and haven’t heard it on the show yet, be patient, we’ll get there…together.

We did, folks – Episode 100! Today we celebrate a milestone with some very special guests, including Rhythm and Pixels, XVGM Radio, Pixelated Audio and the Legacy Music Hour. They brought the heat, and we provided the refreshments. Thanks to everyone who made the journey to Aqua City Island during a global pandemic. And here’s to another 100 episodes!

We’re one week away from our special 100th episode extravaganza, featuring some very special guests, but this week…it’s business as usual as we check in with some of our favorite composers, including Akira Sato, Katsuhiro Hayashi and Yumi Kinoshita. And of course, it wouldn’t be the Last Wave without a little naughty visual novel action. Good grief.
