KVGM “The Last Wave” (2/27/22)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (2/27/22)


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.

This week, we hit up some old favorites, explore some new favorites, speculate on underwater levels, imagine golf games where there aren’t any, play soccer, King of Fighters, and even take a special request from Hammock’s wife. All that and more on this week’s Last Wave.

This week, we run a bit longer than usual but when you’ve got the jams, you gotta let them jam out. We’re revisiting a couple of games, exploring new and unusual territory, with some surprise appearances by composers known and unknown.

I apologize in advance for the low energy as things in Hammock’s personal life are a little heavy right now but we’ll continue to distract ourselves with both light and heavy jams, including a return to the PC-98, Good Morning Camelot, robots, mushroom baseball, cute paladin boys, and a classic Neon Genesis Evangelion tune on the N64.
