My cable supplier have been out to look at the damage but are unable to arrange to fix things until after the building work is complete which at the moment is around June 8th. So there will be no new posts until after then I'm afraid. My apologies for the inconvenience!

Best Wishes,

Welcome Back!

Hi Everyone,

Kids from Fame Media returns with new posts today. Now while I was away I believe there were issues with people trying to access the site and I myself came back to a message that the site had been deleted! Also I couldn’t access my Google email account which is linked to Blogger, the facility this site is built on.

Now, I managed to get things sorted out relatively easily and to be honest I am still uncertain what the actual problem was but it has given me some cause for concern. A lot of time and effort has gone into this site and I would hate for that to just disappear as though it never existed. I have known for some time that Blogger does delete sites, without warning that breech copyright law. Now even though most of the stuff I post has never been released commercially or if it has is now out of print, so sharing it is not affecting any individual writers or artists profits, I obviously don’t own any copyright to the Fame music and videos and thus this site still breeches copyright law.

We could debate the right and wrongs of the law and how it’s unfair that companies who own the copyright lock things away so people like us can’t access it but it doesn’t change anything. I’d always hoped that this site would pretty much fall under the radar of anyone who would have an issue with copyright especially as I thought the numbers of people involved weren’t worth doing anything about. This recent problem has made me think again.

I have already looked into the possibility of transferring the site to a new host and even set up a couple of them by importing all the previous posts to those sites but those sites were not flexible enough to make them viable options so although you may come across these sites as I have left them on the web, they won’t be updated and that search for a new permanent home will continue.

In the meantime I will continue to post here for as long as I’m allowed but please either befriend me on Facebook (Kids From Fame Media has it’s own page too which you can join) or book mark the episode guide and/or the forum:



If anything did happen to this site, then Kids From Fame Media would continue in the short term on those sites, until I could find a new place to start this site again. The majority of video and written interview material is already on the episode guide and over time I will change the song and episode download links on each episode so they go directly to mediafire, where the files are stored rather than direct you to the pages on this site.

If I can work out how to do it then I may set up a mailing list that people can join so if anything did happen then at least I can contact people and let you know where to find us.

Due to the site problems I have not had a chance to set up a new Big Brother vote for this week so rather than just have a few days for a new vote, the current Jesse Vs Chris vote will continue until Friday, when a new vote will replace it and to catch up that will be a double eviction with 4 characters up for nomination.

Many Thanks for the continued messages of support,

Best Wishes,

Fame News!

Another Month begins on Kids From Fame Media! It'll be a shorter month than normal I'm afraid because I'm away on Holiday from May 13th for 10 days. Still there's some great things to come this month including some interesting Instrumental versions of some of our favourite Fame songs, which starts today with "Be Your Own Hero.

Episode of the Month is "The Ballad Of Ray Claxton" From Season 4 and posts for that start tomorrow.

Later in the month I will be posting "Passing Grade" from Season 1 which will be the next episode to get an audio commentary.

Fame Big Brother continues so don't forget to keep voting for your favourite characters to keep them in with a chance of winning! All the remaining characters are up for eviction this week and 6 people are leaving as there are only 10 slots to be filled. Who stays you decide!
