Hello, this is making me going mad.
An old teacher looking at a younger one talking friendly to a school girl
says that he is envious and that maybe because that teacher is fresh from univesity graduation he can understand those type of school girls to some extent. To him, how they talk and what they think is all gibberish. He lately had his students take a survey about what music and singers they like. He doesn't know any of the names they wrote. The other young teacher (to whom the old one is talking to) is curious and takes the surveys in hand. So the old teacher says "you're from the katakana generation, right?" and the other replies "naturally".
And then there's this page.
The first four names are obvious (who doesn't know Agnes and Teresa, btw? Too famous.) but then he starts blubbering and stuttering on the more difficult names. The other ones are Dreams Come True, Stray Cats and Kids On The Block. But the first one...
The period is 80s, early 90s.
Assuming that it's only one name:
1) fo+...+hoi (he's unsure if it reads hoi) +...+ton
2) same as above but without the ... that could conceal some other characters.
3) he starts with fo...but then he wonders if it's read hoi+...+ton (or only ton).
-> Folton, fulton, horton, hurton...?
Assuming that stuff is not one but two names:
William Walton (uoruton). The "uo" could be why he first reads fo and then hoi...basically he's guessing. The problem is, Walton music. It doesn't seem to be much coherent with the other singers and bands there. The period though could be right and Nakazato's mother is a fan of Paul Mauriat Orchestra...
The first name I thought though was Michael Bolton. The period and his music would fit...the problem is that no one would stutter on "boruton". That's what made me think that maybe it's two groups names...the punctuation doesn't help at all here.

How about ...
ホイットニー・ヒューストン ： Whitney Houston
Let's keep this for now and see if there're other suggestions.
Given the difficulty of her name in katakana I could very well see
that poor teacher stuttering while trying to read her name.
Plus the time period and music style fits and I can see very well
the girl who took the survey liking her a lot.
I'd say she's her 100%, but you never know.
