KVGM “The Last Wave” (4/17/22)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (4/17/22)

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.

More jams, more jams, more jams. More mahjong, more visual novel smut, more picross late night action, more Nobuo Uematsu. Hopefully you find something you enjoy in here…hopefully you enjoy it all. If you don’t enjoy any of it, maybe you should be listening to our sister show, KVGM “Afteryachts”, featuring some of the best dad yacht rock in video games.

If you like the Last Wave, and you haven’t already, please consider rating and reviewing the show on Apple Music to help get the word out there that KVGM brings only the smoothest video game music week in and week out. You can also rate the show on Spotify but not sure that really does anything…but it doesn’t hurt. Other than that…well…yeah…enjoy the jams this week, from bowling to soccer lifestyles of the rich and famous…to New Jack baseball swing…even a little horror survival for the real creeps out there.

More jams for cool kids in the house looking to jam out with the cool kids in their life. Even if you’re not cool, that’s okay, these jams don’t discriminate. They gesticulate. We’ve got scared drunk mechs, pensive detectives, messenger girl jams, CHARMSTONES!, apartment ooh la las, magic cards (not Magic cards), soccer, even a little GoldenEye action for children of the 90s. All that and much much more.
