Kit Curran is rude, objectionable, somewhat of a con-man, and shows little more than contempt towards his colleagues and listeners. A real radio rogue, his show on commercial station Radio Newtown comes under fire from the new station manager, Roland Simpson, and loses his job at the end of Series 1.

Series 2 sees Kit doing pretty much anything to make some cash - primarily in Brentford, performing house conversions and installing double-glazing as 'Curran Associates Incorporated'.
