The eagerly anticipated presentation from Kim Wilde was both entertaining and very well attended – with many enthusiastically singing along to her performance of “Kids in America”.
Kim has just started presenting what’s been described as a “fresh, modern, trendy and outstanding” new syndicated radio show called The Kim Wilde 80s Show, now available in Australia.
Clearly excited to be at Radiodays Europe and involved in radio, Wilde spoke of her international career with obvious gratitude, referring to her performances with other greats such as Michael Jackson.
“I’ve always loved radio”, Kim said. “I’ve done a lot of radio tours and I always used to love the immediacy and spontaneity of it. There’s also no pressure to put your lipstick on, which is always a bonus”. Kim described how being “from the 80s” means that she has an insight into the era that she can offer to the listeners.
Kim talked about:
- her music career (including touring with Michael Jackson)
- Her passion for radio – as a listener, pop artist and now as a radio presenter
- Her market-leading weekend show on Magic in London
- Her new project, The Kim Wilde 80s Show, now available to radio stations around the world. It’s getting a great reaction from listeners, radio stations & sponsors.
She also talked about THAT video of her singing on the London Tube after a Magic Xmas party that has so far had well over 2 million views.
