KVGM “The Last Wave” (5/30/21)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (5/30/21)

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.

Old favorites return (Takeshi Abo, MUSE, T’s Music), new favorites appear (Dr. Shrimp, +TEK), we’ve got cocktail spelling bees and Cocktail Soft productions. We’ve got games to appeal to kids and adults alike…but specifically, adult games that kids should not be exposed to and vice versa. Maybe you want to take your fake dog on a walk? You can. Maybe you want to practice English with the Peanuts gang? You can! It’s all here…waiting…for you…

Virtual pinball, cute thieves, OEKAKI LOGIC, even pizza parties in sewer hangouts…we’ve got it all on this week’s show, and of course, plenty of smooth jams to satisfy even the smoothest jammers out there. Also be sure to check out our Patreon because if you think these jams are smooth, you’re missing out on some of the very smoothest. It’s less than a Starbucks coffee a month, it helps support the show, plus you get a special show nobody else gets…unless they’re a Patreon patron. Of course.

If we’ve learned anything from horse racing simulators, it’s that they know how to jam out, especially when that simulator is simulated on a Super Famicom. Plus Yasuhiro Kawakami is back bringin’ that buddy cop funk, the PC-Engine CD is here, women’s soccer on the Nintendo DS, even Mario Kart makes an appearance (shout out to my guy, Shy Guy!). Plus much much more!
