  1. Wow, I am thrilled that Dish Nation is renewed. I just got the news about Kidd Kraddick and my heart just sunk. He was such a hilarious DJ, although I preferred him with the lighter hair color the darker color made him look like he was wearing a wig! RIP Kidd, you will be missed!!! Will Scott and Todd return? I hope so because they put a touch on Dish Nation that tickled my soul, so please let the fans of the show know if this will happened and with the death of Kidd Kraddick will the others stay on the air and on Dish Nation!
