KVGM "The Last Wave" (10/13/19)

Image
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.
We head back to the world of Final Fantasy to relax and reflect on our current life's progression, whether that's as a fashion mogul or a fisherman or even a team manager holding important...team meetings. Also, we're nearing the Last Wave's historic one year anniversary, which, to be honest, didn't quite feel like a year. The seasons are blurring together now. But regardless, yay, one year! Thanks for making it happen, listeners! Let's cross our fingers for two years!

Summer's officially over but that doesn't mean the jams have to stop. In fact, they won't stop, can't stop, unless you, the listeners, decide that they must stop because they're too smooth. But is that possible? Can a jam truly be considered too smooth? I don't think so...I'll have to ponder that one. In the meantime, we've got Takeshi Abo, unused greatness from Daytona USA, Masaki Shimono master bassing, and Jake Hunter drivin' his Mini Cooper and smoking cigarettes. So much smooth.

Welcome to the world of business and money and profit margins - it's the world we currently inhabit, and it has its fair share of problems. Fortunately, we've got smooth video game music to help soothe the pain, and when someone tells you "Game over, man!" - just remember, you can always continue. Nobuo Uematsu makes his second appearance on the show with an even smoother jam than before, and the request line continues to ring off the hook so keep 'em coming!

There are a lot of unknowns in life but especially when it comes to the composers of certain video game soundtracks. Who are these mystery composers? Listeners, I turn to you to help fill in some of this historic gaps in our collective awareness of video game composers. Do you know something the KVGM interns do not? Hit us up right here -- let us know who is who. Otherwise, enjoy the jams!

What's an Air Force situational comedy? Why is Osaka the greatest town? Is virtual scuba diving stress free? Are murder mystery games family friendly? So many questions, not a lot of answers, but a ton of straight up jams by a ton of legendary composers, including Ryu Umemoto, Yuzo Koshiro, and Yoko Kanno.

While Hammock is off somewhere along the coast celebrating his birthday, you can celebrate the music of Tsukasa Tawada and Ryuji Sasai, the relaxing vibes of fishing resorts and golf courses, the spicy nightlife of Faeria, the intensity of naval and space warfare, and the mystery of the MURDER MYSTERY RPG. A special thanks to the Legacy Music Hour for a shout out on their latest episode. And a special thanks to each and every one of our listeners. High five.

Golf? Check. Tennis? Check. Casinos? Check. Bars? Check. We hit a lot of familiar territory on this week's show but also explore caverns with therapeutic hot mineral springs, contemplate the many options of the world map, and seek to achieve the art of balance in our everyday lives. If you tap an armadillo on the top of their shell, they will pop right into the air. I'm not suggesting you go around scaring armadillos but it's a fascinating sight. Okay, thanks, enjoy the show!
