When I listened to the radio when i was little i used to think the singers had to rush to the radio station and sing there songs and then leave. i would spend a lot of time thinking about how they got there so quickly before the previous song ended and if the station played a song more than once i thought the singers must be really annoyed having to go there all the time.
When I was a small child I used to beleive that very tiny people lived in my radio and would make music, or read the news. Of course now I realize that they don't...... or do they?
I studied painting with a guy who grew up in an orphanage in Mexico City. He told me once that when he was a kid, he used to listen to the "Green Hornet" on this old vacuum tube type radio. He liked to look through the back into the weird little world of the vacuum tubes and was convinced that one day he would see the Green Hornet himself, riding around down there
When I was little, I never understood how the volume on a tv or radio worked. I just assumed that when you turned the dial up or down, it made the people on tv/radio sing or talk louder.
when i was like 6, i thought there was a little guy in the radio, and he sang every song
i thought that when a band came on the radio that they had been shrunk down in order to fit into a radio & be broadcast in homes. i remember trying to take off the face of the radio to see if i could see through it to the beatles. my little fantasy was blown when my sister was on the radio when she was asked a question at a basketball game. i was suspicious that she wouldn't let herself be shrunk so i asked her when she got home... she laughed for quite a while.
When i was younger, my step father had a very large set of speakers that were almost as big as me for his sterio system. When ever he would listen to the radio, i swore that there were little tiny people that lived in the speakers that would do all the talking, when i asked my step dad about it, he told me that it wasnt true. but all he could was laugh the day i left a sandwidge by the speaker just incase those tiny radio hosts were hungry.
i used to believe that whatever song was playing on the radio would also be playing on mtv. I'm not sure why i believed this because no matter how fast i ran inside to catch the end of 'rico suave,' it never seemed to work in my (or gerardo's) favor.
when i was about 5 i used to believe that there was little people in the radio and would talk to me and only me so i talked back, but they never seemed to answer my questions. And now i know why!
i used to believe there were little people in the radio talking and singing.
I used to believe (at about age 4) that the singers, such as kenny rogers and dolly parton, were actually inside of your radio singing.
My parents had gotten an old radio from my grandmother, which they listened to the oldie stations on. Being the young Sherlock Holmes that I was, I came to the conclusion that it only picked up old radio stations and in order to hear newer music we'd have to buy a newer radio.
When I was little, we mainly listened to classical music on the radion. It never occurred to me that the station was playing records.
I was sure that radio stations were huge, with many different studios filled with symphony orchestras. And every time a different selection was played, that meant that a conductor had cued up a different orchestra.
When I was a lad, I once saw a busted radio in the snow. There were small tracks all around. I deduced that small peanut people, like Mr. Peanut, lived in the radio and made all of the voices and music. I was saddened when I learned about bird tracks, years later...
I thought that the radio was broadcasted by only one person. They could speak several languages and sing in different styles.
My young daughter believed for several years that the people she heard on the radio were actually IN the radio! She couldn't understand how they got in or out, but she never asked us about it!
When I was a kid, I listened to the radio alot and believed that there were teeny tiny little people inside the radio singing. I especially amazed me that they know so many songs!
When i was very young in the early fifties I always associated the News with submarines. Around that period there had been some sort of submarine disaster and I must have heard my parents commenting on it.
I misheard on the radio "...and that was a submarine of the news" for "...and that was a SUMMARY of the news."
I used to think old radios would play only old music. For instance i thought my mom and dad's old radio would only play like Beatles and 60s music.
I used to believe that when you shut the car radio off, when you turned it back on the song would start from where you turned it off
