KVGM “The Last Wave” (9/4/22)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (9/4/22)

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.

It’s September…two days away from Hammock’s birthday…and we’ve got jams out the wazoo, including a bunch of Nintendo generations, a PC visual novel (duh), an unused arcade track, and a couple of PlayStation doozies…not to mention a special request from an online Final Fantasy game. Good grief. Just in case you’re wondering, yes, I love cookie cakes…chocolate chip is fine. But if they can make a snickerdoodle cookie cake, even better.

Of course, after I recorded the episode, I figured out the composer of City Bravo! Business Hen is Ken Tamura but maybe not THE Ken Tamura…but a Ken Tamura. But if it is THE Ken Tamura, that is incredible. But don’t get your hopes up. Otherwise, it’s back to the convenience store, back to the Legend of Heroes and Rockman series, and of course, it wouldn’t be the Last Wave without some gratuitous adult visual novel sleaze. ENJOY!

This week, business as usual as we feature more jams from more games composed by more composers but next week’s episode will be extra special, as the Last Wave will be participating in the cross-promotional event, the Masters of VGM. Throughout the month of June, VGM podcasts will be selecting their favorite four composers who are masters of making video game music. As for us, you know we’re looking to represent the certified JAM MASTERS. Stay tuned!

Lots of BACKGROUND MUSIC this week, with some unknown composers (no thanks to the KVGM Summer Interns). But you know, that’s okay…because the music more than makes up for the lack of information. We’ve got horse tracks, tourism tracks, picross tracks, powerful grandpa tracks, mahjong tracks, basketball beat ’em up tracks…even a little visual novel to check the boxes. If you want to help the summer interns by completing some of these “unknowns”, please reach out – kvgmradio@gmail.com. Help us help you.

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.

What’s it like to fly for fun? I don’t know – ask a bird! But seriously, we venture from 18 holes to the ultimate sandtrap of the Sahara desert, pondering what high school would be like in a world full of monsters, and the emotions you get from High Scores and Staff Rolls. And of course, the Last Wave wouldn’t be complete without at least ONE naughty game soundtrack. Bonus content: we reveal Hammock’s dad’s top three video games of ALL TIME. Check it out.
