KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/31/21)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/31/21)

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.

January is over but the smooth jams of 2021 are just beginning. We have not one but two tracks from Yuki Nakauama, as well as a Snake Davis guest appearance, historical military simulations, another dose of listener-requested Pokémon, and of course, an unknown composer. Wouldn’t be the Last Wave without a little bit of mystery. Thanks again to everyone who supported the show this month through the new Patreon. Next month, love is in the air…and as always, the very smoothest in video game music.

The sun is shining down on this week’s show because…well, a lot of things but because we’ve got MUSE in the house bringing the emotions, bongos, racing, volleyball, soccer…even computer hacking simulation. And of course, we keep delivering the special requests. And if you’re a member of the Patreon, the inaugural “The Last Wave” After Dark hit last Friday…so I hope you like remakes…and the number 7…and jukeboxes. And more importantly, smooth jams.

A pretty standard show this week (and by standard, I mean extra smooth as usual). AOL murder mysteries, 102 ways to murder God, the Legend of Zelda in four colors, and BASEBALL! Come celebrate with us, and be sure to check out Rhythm & Pixels this week as I join Rob and Pernell to talk about video game music that sounds like buddy cop movies. You know what I’m talking about. Some real fine cheese for sure.

This week,  Yu-Gi-Oh! is back in a big way, sudoku is back in an even bigger way, and we cover not one, not two, not three, but FIVE Nintendo consoles. And we prove that sometimes unused songs are not unused in our hearts. To everyone who became a member of Patreon, thank you so so so much for your support of the show! And to anyone who is on the fence? Well…that’s okay. The fence gives you a good vantage point.
