Excerpts from To France  (Maxi) :
To France (album version) :
Kim has always had a passion for France (the language, the landscape, the red wine, the food...) and she even wore a French flag pin on her hat during a promotionnal trip to Australia for "You keep me hangin'on" in 1986 (see picture above). Last year she confessed having bought a property in the South of France during a French radio interview (Radio Sud). Kim Wilde enjoys particularly her French audience when she comes and sings at La Cigale in Paris. Every French fan is really looking forward to see Kim wilde again at La Cigale in 2012 during her "Snapshots & greatest Hits" Tour.
Maybe it's one of the reasons why she chose to cover "To France" originally released by Mike Oldfield in 1984. Anyway, here is Kim's official decision to cover  "To France" (track by track) :
Thüringen journal (Germany-Sund 20th November 2011) :
The regional MDR Thüringen German TV channel brodcasted a report about the Traumrock music festival in Erfurt. We can watch below parts of performance for "Cambodia" and an interview of Kim about being in her 50's.
Traumrock  (Germany-Sat 19th November 2011) :
Kim Wilde performed at the Traumrock music festival at the Messehalle in Erfurt (Germany). Above, see enclosed photographs by Alexander Volkman and here are a few reports about that event :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM WILDE ! (Frid 18th December 2011) :
On Friday 18th November Kim Wilde celebrated her 51st birthday. At this occasion, Kim was offered a very nice birthday cake by "The perfect fans" (see the photo Kim twittered). Here is a little video of kim celebrating her 50th birthday last year :
Kim Wilde in  Poland (Mond 14th November 2011) :
To promote "Snapshots" which was released in Poland on Monday 14th November, Kim Wilde appeared in several Polish TV programmes this weekend.
Happy 50th birthday Ricky Wilde ! (Sund 6th November 2011) :
Today is a very special day, it's Kim's brother Ricky wilde 50th birthday.
Ricky has always had a strong relationship with his sister Kim from childhood and has been writing and producing most of her hits over the years :
6858474223 f291602255 z  97751226 6858474641 ce8035edce z
Ricky Wilde released a few singles in Europe when he was a teenager. "I am an astronaut" was even covered recently by the British band "Snow Patrol" :
  rickyastronaut.jpg 2417052-ricky-wilde-teen-wave[1] 1658898[1]
He was also at the origins of Kim's carreer. In 1981, he made Mickie Most (RAK records manager) listen to a song "Tearaway" in which his sister had done backing vocals. Mickie Most was attracted by her voice and ask to meet Kim first and then asked Ricky to write a song for her. Back at home, Ricky worked hardly on ""Kids in America"and the rest is history.
Here is "Tearaway" :
Besides working with Kim Wilde on writing, recording and production, Ricky has always accompagnied his sister on TV shows or on tour. Ricky Wilde has also always been nice and available for fans for autographs, photos and chatting.
Here are some nice live snapshots  :

Ricky Wilde has also produced and worked with other artists like Worlds Apart, Fly (with sister Roxanne Wilde & David Cummins), his daughter Scarlett Wilde, Sonic Hub and even made his acting debut in a movie called "Shoot the DJ". Ricky declared on twitter recently that he had been working on a remix for "To France" which could be thus the next single from kim Wilde's new album "Snapshots".
"Cambodia" 30th Anniversary (Wed 2nd November 2011) :
No new single from "Snapshots" so no new promotion for the last album at the moment. To help you being patient, let's celebrate the 30th Anniversary for "Cambodia", my all time favourite Kim Wilde track actually, which sold more than 1 million just in France. This blog offers to you photos and a video from a French TV called "Transit" kim did in 1982 just after "Cambodia" reached the number one spot in the French charts. In France, there was a kind of Kim Wilde mania (listen to the audience reaction) :
Another great promo TV for "Cambodia" (Popcorn- Italy 1982) :
Ataxia UK Appeal (BBC Radio 4) (UK-Sund 30th October 2011) :
This is not linked with the promotion of the new album "Snapshots" but this kind action was worth being mentionned. Kim Wilde has regularly been involved in charity projects over the past years and here is the last one in collaboration with UK BBC Radio 4 :

Poppy Day(Sat 29th October 2011) :
You might have noticed that in November each year many people in the UK wear bright red paper poppies. Kim Wilde wore one during a UK TV show called "Loose women" in November 2008 (see video).What are the poppies for? And why November?
The First World War finally ended after four long and bloody years of fighting, on November 11 1918. The guns stopped on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Millions of people were killed in the war and millions more were injured. In the years since 1918, the UK has payed a tribute to those people by wearing poppies.
