Very sad indeed. R.I.P. Mr. Dj.

I was a regular viewer of "Dish Nation" with Rick Smiley and Kidd Kraddick. Dish was always entertaining. One thing I noticed. Kidd always let his co-workers have the spotlight. This is a very unselfish act, and this shows the unselfishness of a 'CLASS ACT' Kidd was. You will be missed David "Kidd" Kraddick. R.I.P.

Every morning could not wait to turn on my radio to hear what Kidd had going. Loved listening to the gang interact. I am 51 and loved his show. My sympathy goes out to his daughter, family, cohosts, fans, and everyone that new of him. He touched a lot of lives and will be greatly missed!

I was shocked when I saw this today. Didn't know him until I started watching Dish Nation and really thought he was funny. I can't believe I he was alive when I watched Dish Nation on Friday and now he's gone. So hard to believe. My condolences to his family.

OH MY GOD! what the? how sad I was just seeing dish nation on Friday and I love the show and Kidd Kraddick is now gone from this world it just hard to hear right now why is all the good people dieing and the bad ones are still alive. It truly sad to hear he was a funny man and awesome on the show and its never going to be the same without him.

He had such an infectious personality that you felt like you knew him just by listening to the radio. Prayers, thoughts, & condolences go out to his family as well as his radio station family. My mrning ride will never be as good. :*(
