The news of Kidd Kraddick's passing sent a massive shock wave of sadness around the broadcasting community. Being a radio morning personality myself, I can identify with his friends, family and listeners who feel a tremendous loss. Also the beneficiaries of the extensive charitable endeavors Kidd participated in over the years. It appears we have lost an icon at the young age of (not yet) 54 due in part to one very bad habit, smoking. If you do smoke, give it up. I think that's what Kidd would say.
