I believed that when you turned on the radio, the sound came through long tubes extending from your radio to chambers in the sewer system (I'm from Paris), where people were singing or talking - because the sewers obviously were the only place in town with enough space to properly amplify so many voices. I imagined they could look out the grates while they worked and see cars zooming by...

I used to believe that people actually were inside the old radio and that you could look behind and see them. As a child my favourite music was bagpipes (still are) and whenever they were "on the air" and if I wasnt in the room, my brother would shout out,"Quick come and see them theyre marching past now", and I would run from where ever I was and just as I entered the room he would say, "Oh, youve just missed them, theyve gone now" I believed that bugger of a brother (I really loved him tho) for many many years!

I used to believe that every radio played different things. When I was about 4, we got a new radio, and I was very excited. "I wonder what we'll hear on this one," I said to my mother. I couldn't believe it when she told me that every radio played the same stuff.

when i was young I used to think that all the pop stars used to row out to the ship where Radio Caroline was being broadcast sing there song and then row back and that the reason the sound used to come and go was because the waves were really choppy and that the boat was going up and down.

When I was little, I used to believe that when you turned the radio off, if you came back awhile later and turned it back on, the same song would still be playing...

When I was little, they told me the "Amos and Andy" radio show was about "colored people." For a long time, I thought they were red because they were sponsered by Campbells Tomato Soup.

This isn't one of my child hood beliefs, but my Mum's, but when she told me, I couldn't resist but to tell the world!! When she was young, she thought that the weekly British Top 40 singles chart, was selected by HRH The Queen, depending on what records she'd been listening to that week!!!!!

My sister told me that little people lived in the radio and that's what gives us music. For a while there I was afraid that KISS were going to come out and get me.

My mum used to listen to Radio 4 a lot... I used to believe that those honoured celebrities who featured on Desert Island Discs really were sent off to be shipwrecked on a desert island with their records, luxury, Bible and book!

When I was about 5 or 6, I used to believe that when I turned the radio off, then back on again later, it would carry on playing where it left off. After all when I did it quickly it did, and if I left it a while I couldn't remember what was on before anyway...

Or maybe they just had a really short playlist back then

My parents used to listen to Radio 4 whilst cooking or what have you, and I always used to try and get involved with the Seaman's Weather Forecast, which I mistook for a very long intellectual gameshow. The 'presenter' would ask 'Llandudno' whether 'South-Westerly' was 'moderate' or 'good'. I always assumed an answer never came because the contestants were busy writing them down.

I used to believe that you could only listen to 'AM' radio in the morning, and 'FM' radio at night, though i could never figure out why it was called FM radio when it was PM at night.

When I was young I had a very old fashioned radio that my dad gave to me.....and I used to think that all of the music and radio dj's were being broadcast from many years ago......I didn't realise that old radios could pick up modern broadcasts?????

I remember when I was little I use to think that when you were in a car listening to a song on the radio, that the next time you got in the car, the song you were listening to before, would just start where it left off.
