These are some of the best moments from the 2013 video posted on Jagger's blog page.
I was playing music on my iPhone Saturday night and not paying attention to my text messages.
Before going to bed I checked to see if I had missed anything and saw that my phone was blowing up and that I had missed 14 text messages.
It was only a little after 10:00 PM but word had gotten out that Kidd had died. I was shocked. It was so unexpected and it was hard to comprehend at first.
As I checked twitter I saw that FOX 4 had confirmed the tragic news.
I felt numb and overwhelmed with sadness and thought first of his family, on and off the air.
Kelly Rasberry, (my producer) Jedi Jantzen and Kidd Kraddick being a good sport.
During the 15 years that I have been doing mornings here Kidd was always the top dog.
When I arrived at The Edge in April of 1998 my mission was to be competitive and survive. Only a fool would have thought he was here to snatch the crown of morning radio from Kidd.
There have been many that have come and gone in my 15 years, some that actually thought they could be the one to succeed in finally beating Kidd Kraddick. Where are they now? Living out their fantasy elsewhere.
Kidd was one of those rare talents that gets paired with exactly the right station and something magical happens. And no matter how hard you try or how hard you work at it, you can't win. You can only hope to compete well enough to keep your own job.
And that's what I realized very early on. It was the magic of KISS and KIDD and it was many the fool that thought they could crack that inpenatrable combination.
I only worked with Kidd directly on one occasion and that was on the Saturday after 9/11 when we were both part of an on-air round table talk show that was simulcast on all of the Clear Channel stations.
Kidd and I were interviewed by Channel 8 that day so we spent some additional time together and he was courteous, professional and as pleasant as I could hope.
Over the years I would have the occasion to run into him backstage at various concerts, the last being the One Direction show at Gexa Energy Pavillion last year. We were both there working and doing interviews with the guys from 1D.
Although we were not close personal friends, I couldn't help respect what he had accomplished in this market and around the country with his show in syndication.
I've hosted 2 nationally syndicated radio shows and 1 nationally syndicated television show, but it will never equal what Kidd did here in the DFW area.
The bond he and his show created with the listeners at KISS is one that most in our business only dream of.
And being on top, Kidd was always the target of other shows that would talk poorly of him or accuse him of stealing their bits. But Kidd new it came with the territory and took it in stride.
I think we all took our shots, but I never made it personal, like some others did. I had too much respect for our profession and for Kidd to ever stoop that low.
But as you can see in the picture above, we had some fun with him and he was more than happy to play along.
Kidd found that magic combination of peronality and station and worked very hard to maintain his status as number 1.
You don't have the kind of run and the kind of success that Kidd had without a lot of hard work and a lot of great people supporting you.
Kidd leaves behind a great legacy, an enormous amount of fans and a working radio family that showed up every day to help create the enormous success of 'Kidd Kraddick in the Morning'.
May Kidd R.I.P. and may his radio family find the strength to move forward in the face of such a huge and painful loss.
