DALLAS -

DALLAS (AP) - Fans of radio personality David "Kidd" Kraddick have mourned his sudden death with flowers and condolences written on signs left outside his Dallas-area studio.
    
The website of Kraddick's flagship station KHKS, known as KISS-FM, featured his photo Sunday and remembrances of his career.
    
A publicist says Kraddick died Saturday at a charity golf event he sponsored near New Orleans. Kraddick was 53. No cause of death was immediately released.
    
Kraddick had worked in the Dallas radio market since the mid-1980s. His "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" program was syndicated by YEA Networks.
    
Fans left online comments such as "morning drive to work in the Dallas traffic will not be the same with out your voice." Another fan wrote "he will be missed."
