Jack Killian is an ex-cop in San Francisco. He quit the police force after accidentally shooting his partner. He was approached by Devon King, the manager of a local radio station, and accepted a job as a talk-back host.

One of the earliest episodes dealt with the aftermath of AIDS, as Jack's old girlfriend (played by Kay Lenz) develops the disease, and Jack hunts down the man who infected her. The episode was eventually rewritten to show compassion for people with AIDS, and won Kay Lenz an Emmy award. See more »

or, more exactly, a special one. for the wise manner to present cases and dramas and radio station life. for the science to define an entire state of duty, passion and contact with near reality in the most precise, convincing way. the music, the acting, the story, the stories, all are great for the courage and science to give the right show about vulnerabilities, devotion, doubts and the importance of the life near you. and , in fact, this is the detail who transforms "Midnight Caller" in more than a real good series.
