Why “Wormtown”?

May 23, 2022

WBDC-PODCAST
Ever wonder how the Wormtown nickname came about?
L.B. Worm, the Mayor of Wormtown, and Brian Goslow take Hank and Amy back to the 70’s and the punk scene in Worcester.  Learn how a local fanzine Wormtown Punk Punk Press helped form a community through music.  When bands like Pere Ubu and The Human Switchboard band would journey from Cleavland to play the clubs and sleep on the couches of their fans.  How radio stations like WCUW and WICN helped spread the word and the music.  And, how Wormtown survives today through places like Ralph’s.  Be Hoppy all you like but if you think Wormtown started with the brewery think again.
