Kim Wilde to DJ on Virgin Radio

Kim Wilde is to take a turn on Virgin Radio as a DJ over the Easter weekend.

Wilde, who shot to fame in 1981 with the single Kids in America, will host an evening slot on Good Friday, March 21, and Easter Saturday, March 22.

She will present Virgin Radio Party Classics between 6pm and 10pm, replacing regular host Tony Hadley, the former Spandau Ballet singer.

“Kim is an absolute 80s icon and a sex kitten to boot,” said Mark Bingham, the programme manager at Virgin Radio.
