Dennis Lawson starred as the titular character, in this comedy series about a rather irritating radio DJ. He would constantly ignore his bosses requests, and refuse to play adverts or even the records when he was supposed to. In one episode, he was physically dragged from the studio while on air, something which almost happened for real when a certain be-wigged DJ kept moaning about his estranged wife.
You could tell that Kitt was an amalgam of many of the real radio jocks that appeared on UK airwaves at the time it was shown. Even the way he looked (big '80s glasses, loud patterned shirts with up-turned collars, and spiky hair) and his arrogant know-all behaviour would make it easy for viewers to guess that he was based on certain people...I don't think I'm brave enough to name names right now.
If memory serves me correctly, at the end of the first series he was sacked and began the second series desperately seeking ways to earn a living and get back on the air.
Although it wasn't a masterpiece of comedy, it was at times amusing to watch, much like Chance In A Million in which Simon Callow plays a similar type of character.
