Radio Worm is a concept that has been used since the start of this century. First, as a monthly show that was distributed on CD and send to several independent radio broadcasts around the world. Then, since 2005, as a producer of radio art and, at last, as an independent radio station on internet and - for a small amount of Rotterdam people - on AM from the Worm base in the center of town. They started their station in January 2021 and the idea was to have a sort of community radio station with a slight emphasis on the “art side” of things. The people involved are also doing stuff at Worm*: working at the bar, organizing, making art or anything else (baking cakes, having a barbershop…).
The idea of the Worm Merchant’s show is to implement some of this daily chaos in Radio Art Zone’s program. Indeed, all members of the crew will have their special moments that relate to the shows they make in Radio Worm. There will be a whole bunch of crossovers, some live concerts, and a Psychogeographical walk through Esch that will be followed live and commented on.
