The Taxi Driver drove a black cab which Ken Barlow took from Piccadilly Station to Coronation Street when he returned from a walking holiday in the Pennines in August 1991.

The driver chatted to his passenger en route and found out that Ken used to enjoy going to the countryside for the peace and quiet but that it had been overcrowded on this occasion, leading him to return home a day early. As the cab approached its destination, the radio picked up 'Just Can't Wait' Radio, a pirate station run by Steve and Andy McDonald which was broadcasting its adventure series: "Captain Kenny the Android Warrior of Weatherfield with his Mechanical Sheep, Baaa-low". Ken wasn't offended by the jibe and in fact laughed along with it, especially when Tracy Barlow joined in. Unaware that his passenger was the one being mocked, the driver complained about kids interfering with his radio.
