KVGM “The Last Wave” (4/25/21)

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.

This week, it’s all about life in the city aka city life. From unsolved crimes to fancy restaurants to street racing, even a requested track from the arranged Policenauts album. Throw in a game of soccer, and you’re set. We provide the soundtrack, all you need to do is JAM OUT!

This episode is dedicated to long-time listener and support of the Last Wave, Vin Diesel. We’ve got not one but TWO street racing tracks, and an unused Virtua Cop track (because Vin played a cop in A Man Apart). But for the non-Vin listeners, we’ve got Snoopy and friends, soccer, dating simulator action, and, of course, a very patriotic handheld quiz game.

This week, Street Fighter clones with bad dialogue, murder mysteries, sleeping beauties, even getting dressed in the morning jams…it’s the perfect way to start your week. Also be sure to check out this month’s The Last Wave, After Dark as we feature a very special guest and chat about “feels” when it comes to game music.

It’s Easter Sunday, which can only mean one thing: more smooth jams coated in a milk chocolate shell. Praise such jams as “Misty” and “Parts Shop”, and glory be to Katsuhiro Hayashi and Yoko Kanno, jam masters among us. Worship at the church of Falcom Sound Team J.D.K. – and we all know what the J.D.K. stands for. And remember, if you donate to the Patreon, you will be blessed with even more of the smootheth video game music. Amen.
