KVGM “The Last Wave” (12/12/21)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (12/12/21)

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.

Welcome to the new KVGM website, where you can download tracks directly from the page, listen in, still access everything cool, and while the request line contact form is no longer available, we are always still taking requests at kvgmradio@gmail.com. Send us an e-mail with a favorite track of yours and we’ll play it on the show. This week, tennis is prevalent but also horse racing, escaping jobs, kangaroo fury, and city simulation with heart and soul.

We’re all over the map with this week’s show, as we slip into spooky mode and jam out to sucking blood…but that’s really as far as the spooks go as everything else is business as usual. We’ve got the Xbox One representing as well as a return to fashion with the Nintendo 64 and the world’s oldest golf course. Plus space Friends, Korean visual novels, and apartment romances…or lack thereof.

It’s been a rough start of the month for the staff at the KVGM studio due to family issues but thankfully, we’ve got these jams to help us take our minds off the not so bueno. And we’ve got a healing friend in a fake jellyfish, along with plenty of visual novel delight, a little bit of cute soccer management, dinosaurs, and the PC-Engine CD.
