Doon Your Way was a show combining several satirical elements. While at first appearing to be a parody of the now defunct BBC Radio 4 series Down Your Way, the show always gets interrupted by pirate radio station Flush FM, fronted by motormouthed, Estuary-voiced DJ Chantal, broadcasting from a Portaloo in Peckham.

Chantal's show has a mixture of ill-informed topical views, interviews with non-celebrities, and adverts for a fetishware business run by her mother, Aphrodite. There are also contributions from an annoying Young Christian, a Brownie carrying out rather "Adult" duties, Princess Diana, and a series of interruptions from the radio of a local taxi firm.
