Before Walking On The Moon: "We are gonna play some songs from our new LP, which is gonna be out in America very soon. The LP is called Reggatta de Blanc. This track is called Walking On The Moon".
"This is another new song. It's especially for the bootleggers. This is called Bring On The Night".
Sting: "This record is number one in England. I'm extremely proud of it. It's called Message In A Bottle".
During Born In The 50's: "On the guitar Andy Summers. On the drums Stewart Copeland. I would like to thank WPIX 102. I would like to thank New York band The The and the Birmingham group Fshin. Hi Dick. I would like to thank you too. Thank you. Goodnight".
This show was broadcasted by WPIX. (This station was actually located at 101.9 on the FM dial, but they called themselves "102" since it was easier to remember). The live broadcast on the program "Live at 11" started around 11pm and ran until after midnight.
