KVGM “The Last Wave” (12/4/22)

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.

Mas jams, mas good vibrations, mas pachinko, billiards and horse racing…you already know how we do it here on the Last Wave. Throw in some Atsuyoshi Isemura, a couple of dirty bird games, maybe some more crossword puzzle action, and maybe even a special request straight from the VIP KVGM Discord server.
