Sorry I missed these the first time;
JF: I love my voice.
I think this is: "I'm the voice" (John Farnham's nickname is "The Voice" so this makes sense). Which, to make it rhyme, means this:
JB: I’m the working class trash!
Would be: "I'm the working class choice"
I tell them je ne sais pas pour quoi!
I just listened to it again, and it looks like she doesn't put in the "pas", It's just "Je ne sais pourqoui" (pourquoi is one word). My bad, sorry about that:-(

Here it is again with the changes made.

RA: Alright, you’ve got that dial locked on 23FM.
Your one-stop non-stop shop of classic rock where
The hot hits and golden memories are cocked and
Ready to meet head-on with the best blend of old and
New good time chart-busting rock and roll. And hey, if
You’re out on the road, remember, keep left. Good one!

JF: Well, I’ve been king of pop and a Countdown host,
And I’ve sung almost everywhere. I was once kicked out
Of LRB for having too much hair. I’m just a natural guy
Who likes to close his eyes and hold every note I sing. But if
Someone starts to call me Johnny; I’ll kick their bloody teeth in!


RA: Oh yeah, don’t it sound so good? Nice one, Johnny!

JB: I’ve got a three-day growth, a leather jacket, and a freight
Train heart. I’ve been listening to my last recording and I’m
Waiting for the headache to start. I don’t know why I’m so
Over the top or why I scream on every note! I’m just a working-
Class man doing the best he can with a very sore throat.


RA: Oh, you have to be on 23FM wouldn’t you?
And don’t forget those Barnesy tour dates, we’re
Looking at the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 23rd and the
Supplementary num…hey, we’ll check them out
Later. Right now, let’s bring the mood back a step
With a good-time classic rock memory. I feel so good!

LRB: Well we use to sing in front of massive crowds, now its
cruise ships and cabaret. Our beards are long; our hair is long,
we need wheelchair ramps wherever we play. But our records
still sell, our harmonies swell, and my pension keeps us out of
debt. When we show how close to the middle of the road bad
Aussie rockers can get!


RA: OK, one for the mums there! You’re on 23FM and you know
The hottest way to look cool this summer is in any of our official
23FM station gear. We’ve got t-shirts, singlet’s, sun hats, orthopedic
Sandals in a huge range of black. All you gotta do to score one is
Spot Dangerous Dan who is out and about in the FM Super Summer
Turbo Beach Cruiser. Just look for a yellow Mazda without rego plates
And you could be a winner right here on 23FM. And speaking of
Winners, here’s a little lady making big waves overseas…

KM: People often ask me how I keep making hits, I tell them je
Ne sais pourquoi! I should be so lucky that a soapie star ever
Got to go so far. With a brand new cossie & a permanent possie
As a TV WEEK cover girl. And a dozen songs playing all day
Long in elevators ’round the world.


RA: Let me tell you that’s one hot single, rumored to be ten
Minutes in the making. You’re on 23FM, we’re gonna take a
Quick break. (Brief pause) And roll out another dose of classic
Aussie rock.

JR: Got a hammerhead, live on the coast, so indisposed. I been
Mixing with nicest people when you caught the last train home
House of Cards, Bondi tram, down-hearted and reckless. When the
Boys light up, he's just a junkyard dog who needs a speech therapist.


RA: Alright, don’t it sound so good? Can’t wait for the English-
Language version. Let’s got to the lines, hello?

W: Oh G’day its Wayne here. Why don’t you play more Australian music?

RA: Wayne, we just rolled out Five in a Row.

W: Oh, I must’ve missed them. I don’t listen to the radio.

RA: Alright Wayne, just for you, let’s hear them all one more time.

W: Do I win anything?

RA: Afraid not!

W: Sunhat?

RA: Uh-uh!

W: How about one of them ortha…orthanadonic sandals?

JF: Welll...I’m the voice.
JB: I’m the working class choice!
KM: I’m the one who really can’t mime.
LRB: We’re a bunch of easy rockers.
JR: Na-Na Yah Naw.

RA: Absolutely! 23FM – turn it on, lock it on.
We give you the non-stop blend of good time
Classic rock and golden-old chart-busting
Memories in the one bread. And I’m just
Gonna keep talking like this until I get fainter
And fainter and you can hardly hear me. Then
All of a sudden I’ll get loud again and then just
Sort of fade off into the background. But I won’t
Go away, oh no! Hey I don’t like to bring my
Political beliefs onto the radio, but does the
South African government suck or what?
"Well David, what do you think of the Andromeda Galaxy?"
"I gave it four billion stars."
"Me too."

Mixing with gnocchi people
Now that I listen to it again, I think it might actually be "nicest people" which are the original lyrics from James Reyne's song.
Instead of reposting the whole thing again though, maybe it might be easier if you just edit the last post.

The subtitles list it as "you been messing with gnocchi" in the film clip if remember properly. It's on the Bottom Draw section of the dvd. That may have just been a joke, but it sounds possible.
Now a'Tweetin'.

Here's the lyrics to Five More In A Row

Alright you are back on 23FM
Your home base of classic oz rock
Where the red hot hits
Are comin' at ya 24 hours a day
Right now we're halfway through a no repeat, double shot
Commercial free, all request, ultimate album side workforce music marathon
And let’s kick it along with this guy

I’m a skateboard rocker
My haircut's a shocker
And my clothes are op-shop rejects
I got a new sensation
Strange relationship with Jason Donovan's ex

Sometimes I think I'm Jagger
Sometimes I look like a dork
I just wish I could dance in these stupid black pants
But it's hard enough to even walk

Oh you know I think there's a message in that song for us all
Don’t mess with non prescription drugs
You got your stereo dial anchored on 23FM
This country's biggest and best music mix
And speaking of big lets do some Dragon

Ohhh! We’ve been around so many years no-one knows our age
But when we play at concerts now they reinforce the stage
Were blocking out the April sun every time we move about Ohhh!
We haven’t had a groupie since Jenny Craig. Kicked us out.

And don’t forget Marc and the boys will down in Melbourne this weekend
Playing support to the Westgate Bridge
Your on 23FM hey we just got a message here from the boys in blue
For the owner of a silver porshe rego number STUD 01
"You’re a complete wanker"
Alright let’s go way back now the former king of pop
Now king of cool. Darryl

Well I used to wear tight satin flares
And drive teenage girls insane
Now those dacks are gone
And my shirt stays on
But the mic technique is still the same

Sometimes now as the days go by
I remember with disbelief
One summer when old Sid was a boy (?)
And my fans all had their own teeth

Awwh yeah there’s a guy who wrote the book
And like a fine bottle of wine
He just keeps on getting better how’s that. 23FM Here's Kate

"Oui mi su grande"(?)
When I mentioned my love dimensions
Who could possibly resist
With these bedroom eyes and carport thighs
I'm a sexy scientologist
Sometimes I sing the blues, sometimes its disco pop
Sometimes I wonder how I squeezed into this top

Are we talking about one foxy lady or what?
Coming to you loud and live right here on your classic rock connection 23 FM

We sing of dust and blue sky mines and people forced to beg
I look like a man that’s trying to dance with 240 volts up each leg
So put down that toupee
I don’t need no hair
Just a decent hat
A seat in senate
And some chiropractic care

Okay your on 23FM cruising through another classic rock regatta
And time to check out today's weather
Fine and mild that's the call from the boys in the bureau
Speaking of calls hello
Hello am I on?
Yo
G’day its Wayne here
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the music you’re playing..
Hey thanks a lot
..not very much at all
Thanks Wayne just for you lets backtrack now with five more in a row

"Our fashion sense has failed"(?)
"We look like beached whales"
"I need to be in bed by 9:15"
"Gonna be a superstar with the right producer and a decent bra"
"Our records don't go gold they just go green"

Aint it the truth
23FM ready to rock got some traffic news here
It’s heavy downtown, moving slow in the suburbs
And the freeway's doin' what a freeway should
And you know I’ve been thinking hey call me a greenie
But aint it time this government did something about the ozone layer
and hydroflurocarbons I mean what is the correct spelling? Let’s get that sorted out.....
*MYSTIFIED SILENCE*


TL: DR "They look for a fucking can of Tuna for 310 pages"

Yes, I'd always thought that's what it was, and I actually suggested that first, but then I had another listen and realised it could be anything. Gnochhi didn't seem to make as much sense as "nicest", as the other lines reference other James Reyne or Aussie Crawl songs.

Here are the Five More in a Row lyrics:

RA: Alright, you are back on 23FM.
Your home base of classic Oz rock where the
Red-hot hits are coming at ya 24 hours a day.
Right now we’re halfway through a no-repeat,
Double-shot, commercial-free, all-request,
Ultimate album-side workforce music marathon,
And let’s kick it along with this guy.

MH: I’m a skateboard rocker, my haircut’s
A shocker and my clothes are op-shop rejects.
I got a new sensation-strange relationship
With Jason Donavon’s ex.
Sometimes I think I’m Jagger,
Sometimes I look like a dork.
I just wish I could dance in these stupid
Black pants, but it’s hard enough to even walk.


RA: Oh you know, I think there’s a message in that
Song for us all – Don’t mess with non-prescription drugs.
You got your stereo dial anchored on 23FM, this country’s biggest
And best music mix. And speaking of big, let’s do some Dragon.

D: Ohhh! We’ve been around so many years, no-one knows our
Age. But when we play at concerts now, they reinforce the stage.
We’re blocking out the April sun every time we move about! Ohhh!
We haven’t had a groupie since Jenny Craig kicked us out!


RA: And don’t forget Marc and the boys will be down in Melbourne
This weekend playing support to the West Gate Bridge. You’re
On 23FM. Hey we just got a message here from the boys in
Blue for the owner of a silver Porsche rego number STUD
01 ‘You’re a complete wanker’. Alright, let’s go way back
Now – the former king of pop, now the king of cool, Daryl.

DB: Well, I used to wear tight satin flares and drive
Teenage girls insane. Now those dacks are gone and
My shirt stays on, but the mike technique is still the same.
Sometimes now as the days go by, I remember with disbelief, one
Summer when old Sid was a boy and my fans all had their own teeth.


RA: Aww yeah, there’s the guy who wrote the
Book. And like a fine bottle of wine, he just keeps
on getting better. How’s that? 23M, Here’s Kate.

KC: “Oui mu su grande”.
When I mentioned my love dimensions,
Who could possibly resist?
With these bedroom eyes and carport
Thighs, I’m a sexy scientologist.
Sometimes I sing the blues, sometimes its disco pop. (Yeah, yeah)
Sometimes I wonder how I squeezed into this top.


RA: Are we talking about one foxy lady or
What? Coming to you loud and live, right here
On your classic rock connection – 23FM.

MO: We sing of dust and blue sky mines and people forced
To beg. I look like a man that’s trying to dance with 240 volts
Up each leg. So put down that toupee, I don’t need no hair.
Just a decent hat, a seat in the senate, and some chiropractic care.


RA: Okay you’re on 23FM cruising through another classic rock regatta.
And time to check out today’s weather – fine and mild, that’s the call
From the boys in the bureau. And speaking of calls, hello?

W: Hello am I on?

RA: Yo!

W: G’day its Wayne here. I just wanted to say
How much I enjoyed the music you’re playing…

RA: Hey thanks a lot.

W: …not very much at all.

RA: Thanks Wayne. Just for you let’s
Backtrack now with Five More in a Row.

MH: I increase record sales!
D: We look like beached whales!
DB: I have to be in bed by 9:15.
KC: Gonna be a superstar with the right producer and a decent bra!
MO: Our records don’t go gold they just go green.

RA: Ain’t it the truth? 23FM, ready to rock.
Got some traffic news here – it’s heavy downtown,
moving slow in the suburbs, and the freeway’s
doing what a freeway should. And you know, I’ve
been thinking, hey call my a greenie, but ain’t it
time this government did something about the ozone
Layer and Hydro Fluorocarbons. I mean, what is the
correct spelling? Let’s get that sorted out alright, yeah!
"Well David, what do you think of the Andromeda Galaxy?"
"I gave it four billion stars."
