KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/28/21)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (3/28/21)

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 in sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch…the Last Wave.

What else can I say that hasn’t already been said before? Smooth jams, ahoy! We’ve got vaporwave interwebz, sketchy department store elevators, giant hotels, spooky discotheques, and even Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon Super. Plus another special request from the magic of the PC-Engine CD. OH BOY!

I mean, opening with a Yuzo Koshiro track sets the stage for this week’s episode. We’ve got girls only RPGs, a possible Square Enix cookbook RPG, Scrabble, and some epic pause music, plus we revisit a classic and play a very special request that’s sure to set the mood…for smashing…tennis…balls. Enjoy!

The energy level is pretty high this week, and that’s okay…it’s always nice to have a pick me up to kick off your week. Pocket monsters, dragon balls, soccer balls, world’s greatest thieves…these are automatic pick me ups. Throw in a banger by Jake Kaufman and a little romance from a PC visual novel, and the stage is set for another Last Wave. Thanks for listening!
