I reiterate my belief that this episode should not be considered part of the "Yamasaki Producer" series, but it is enjoyable nontheless.
I've been researching some the the music from the episode, and pleased to find all of it real.
Here's a photo comparison between an actual 45" single cover and Yamasaki's モノマネ.
This song (Uso by Nakajo Kiyoshi) is available here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvQkY6raPH0
Here's another comparison from Yamasaki's parody of the フィンガー５ (Finger5) song 恋のダイヤル６７００ which you can view here:
This song is fun but very silly, andt Yamasaki's parody is great.

Another comparison. This time, 他人の関係 by 金井克子(Tanin no Kankei by Kanai Kachiko?)
The original version of the song is here, and it's really great:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llRBoDSNAck&feature=related
And a little less impressive recreation:
The song, 赤い風船 (Red Balloon) by is available here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkA9hmwmjKY&feature=related

宮崎美子 (Miyazaki Miko) in what appears to be a Minolta commercial available Here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um1FjRFzJWQ

More, more, more:
The song 赤道小町ドキ (Akadokomachi Dokii) by 山下久美子 (Yamashita Kumiko)
The song isn't bad (a little New Wave) and is available in many places, like here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ocYV0qNSFM
But I can't find a video which matches Yamasaki's parody (with the bikini top.) The best I can do is this image comparison:

Seiko Matsuda's Daite, closing the episode is, in my opinion, Japanese popular music, Shōwa or otherwise, at its lugubrious worst:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s75gDxs62nQ
