KVGM “The Last Wave” 200th Episode (10/23/22)

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.

We did it, folks – 200 episodes! It’s the end of an era and what better way to celebrate this milestone than a retrospective episode looking back at some of Hammock’s favorite tracks played on the show throughout the years.
