KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/15/23)

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.

Hey, it’s another Last Wave…and you haven’t already, please go check out Dedeco’s latest mix on YouTube, curated by yours truly. It’s a bit out of the Last Wave comfort zone without straying too far away from the smoothness of Aqua City. And if you’re new to the show via that mix, welcome! Enjoy!
