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.
