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.
My cousin used to believe the singers in the radio were ants....
I used to think tiny little people were inside my mothers radio singing to me.
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?????
When i was younger i thought that if i had the radio on and was listening to a song, then the video for that song MUST be on MTV right then.
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.
I used to believe when I turn the radio off, it stopped playing until I turned it back on again. And when I turned it back on it would start where it was when I turned it off.
When I was a kid I use to believe that if you turned off the radio or T.V. and then turned them back on at a later time it would pick up where it left off.
i used to believe that small small peoples are inside tht radio ,and they are fearing to come out .on those days i used to shout at radio "if you are brave ennof come out and fight with me bleady beggers"
I used to believe little people sit inside the radio and sing the songs and stuff. When no one was around I used to check through the small holes so that I can talk to them.
I could never work out how they used to change the bands over so quickly when i listened to the radio
I used to believe that the tiny little people that live in radios and record players made to music, and when you turned it off, that was when it was their dinner time
I used to belive that if I was out in the car (for example) with the radio on, that when the car was turned off when we got home, that i could turn it on when I got in the house and the song that had been on would start up from where I left off in the car.
When I was a little girl I used to think that when I was listening to the radio, if the person in the next car over saw me moving my lips that they'd think I was the one on the radio singing!
When I was young, I used to believe that the people were really singing inside the radio, and I could never figure out how they all fit inside and still managed to be able to sing (sort of crowded in there, you know...of course, radios were much bigger back then.)
I used to believe that the names of the singers were actually the names of the DJs, especially since it was usually a woman "That was so-and-so singing such-and-such song"ing a song sung by a woman and a man "That was so-and-so singing such-and-such song"ing a song sung by a man.
Of course in my head, the DJs were saying "This is so-and-so and that was such-and-such song" instead of "That was so-and-so singing such-and-such song".
Never did figure out why they never said the names of the singers but kept on telling you who *they* were.
When I was very young my mom used to listen to the Houses of Parliament broadcasts on the radio. I thought the politicians were 'army men' because they were so rowdy! (I still think there is a grain of truth in this.)
