- Timecheck was 4 mins to 11.00 and Sian was announced as the 11.00 newsreader
- James announced that record just played was Blue Zone by Finest Thing (or the other way round, he wasn't sure - and it was the other way round as it was Lisa Stansfield's first band). He also announced again that Sian Pendlington will be the newsreader at 11.00pm shortly - he later mentioned that she was "a ginger-haired celt"!
- All The Way From Memphis by Mott the Hoople was the song after the 11pm news. James then stumbled over his own name, couldn't decide whether to go for Jim or James, settling on James. Mentioned the Timmy Mallett leaving party again
- James then announced that Mike Dean would feature in a number of the letters tonight, and a break soon followed
- Doug Ashton in Wythenshawe reckons the thing on the Mexican world cup pitch is an Aztec statue that is over the main stand. James also mentions that Tom Tyrrell is at the World Cup for Piccadilly
- James then gets excited and lines two calls up at once - Jimmy White in Crumpsall and Steve Davis in Chadderton. They both carry on the game for a bit then both confirmed that is both their real names. He then put Jimmy White off and let Steve carry on. Steve advises it is not a sound system on the pitch in Mexico, but him and his mates in a spaceship hired from Dukinfield Sputnik Hire
- Jimmy White is let back on and reads a poem out about Allan Beswick on Red Rose. Then he says that the Mexican shadow is Jimmy Hill's chin

- Tracey from Little Lever says she is from the Mike Dean Fan Club and wants people to leave him alone
- Mike Dean from Ashton-u-Lyne then called to say that he is taken so can't meet Shelley, and he wasn't happy about being cut off the other day, and that he wasn't happy about being top of the Morons Chart (fades before the call ends while he is talking about his psychiatrist)
- Resumes with the end of a Mike Dean call and he goes on to say some "get losts" and about the treatment the doctor gives him. Then Mike went on to talk about apartheid. James talks over him and fades him out
- A break then Wham - The Edge of Heaven then another break
- Gareth Bender in Didsbury confirms that is really his name and wants to talk about dog poo
- Larry Lamb in Stockport wanted to talk about Frank Sidebottom and said he only phoned up to talk to Frank Sidebottom on the switchboard and wasn't happy he wasn't on it. James said he's gone home now. James sidetracked him and then cut him off before he got round to talking about his main point - football
- Dean McDermott in Wythenshawe thinks the shadow on the World Cup pitch is definitely a sound system and not a spaceship
- After a break came Dave Carrington in Southport who thinks it is Jimmy Greaves's tupee over the pitch in Mexico

- Trina Day in Salford wanted to know if James goes to the loo during the advert breaks, and also about Jimmy Greaves
- Dennis Hargreaves in Sale thinks that the shadow on the pitch is an x-ray of Bryan Robson's shoulder and then on to talk about World Cup commentators
- Roy Acorn in Rochdale thinks it is a bit busy on the phones tonight, and thinks the shadow is a Russian magnet so they can get the ball in the net easier
- Frank Connolly in Timperley called and the call fades out before he said anything useful
- The programme returns midway through a call from Arnandez Mendoza (and not Frank Connolly in Timperley) claiming to be an Anglo-Argentinian and wanted to talk about the forthcoming England v Argentina game in the World Cup
- Simon Ashworth in Nantwich says the shape on the pitch in the World Cup in Mexico is a warning from the Inca gods. James also confirmed that the second record of the night was The Matchstick Flotilla by the Thrashing Doves
- Then there was a break and a timecheck 26 mins to 1am, and then a record Yours For A Day by Rueon (can't find any evidence of this record existing?) then another break and a timecheck 12:42am
- Paul Kelsall in Flixton wanted to say that James was only partially right when talking to the Argentinian caller earlier - James confirmed it was actually Frank Connolly. On this call you can clearly hear James opening and drinking a can of fizzy drink. The recording ends midway through this call with the time approaching 1.00am
