I used to believe there was a lady sitting in the radio, singing.

At one time, I believed that there were tiny people inside the radio that sang all the songs. When my Mom told me that the music came from a radio station, I wondered (1) how they all fit in there at once, and (2) how they got from station to station so fast!

I used to beleive that there were little people in the radio. So one night I sat up all night waiting for the little people to come out so I could can't them and put them in my doll house. My sister ask me what was I doing and I told her, she told me that there were no people in there and to go to sleep. I went to bed, still defiantly believing that there were people in there, and having a good time to.

I used to think that when you turned off the radio, the song that was playing would come back on and finish when you turned the radio back on.

I thought that if you turned off your radio when a song was on, the song would stop until you turned the radio back on. (And start where it left off) :-)

This isn`t really my belief, but my son`s. He was four years at that time, and had just got a small radio. Many times, ha asked me to open the radio, but he didn`t tell me why, until one day... Then he said: Mama, please open the radio, I want to see the little man inside it! I asked, what little man? He said: The man who is sitting inside the radio, talking and singing, I want to see him, can`t we let him out now?

We used to get a coach to school every morning and the driver used to listen to BBC Radio 2 on it. For the longest time I thought the DJ that had the breakfast show was called 'Joe Stracey' because they had this jingle that sounded like 'Radio 2 ... Joooooe Straaaaacey'. It wasn't until I was about 17 that I found out that the jingle actually said 'Radio 2 ... gooooes racing' and preceeded their tips for that days horse racing and that the DJ was actually Terry Wogan.

I remember going through an old cupboard once when I was about nine years old and finding this really old looking '60s styled radio. I ran upstairs and plugged some batteries into it because I was certain that I'd be able to listen really old radio shows - shows as old as the radio, straight from the past. I was gutted when I turned it on and heard that week's top 40 chart show.

As a child I believed that the music coming out of a car radio was the same age as the car. So if you drive a 55 chevy what comes out of the radio is that era's music. A newer car, newer music.

We had a car that had mechanical push buttons for selecting the station. I thought there were only five stations in the whole world. Then I discovered that if you pushed the button reeeaaaaalllll slow that you could get these secret "in-between" stations that no one knew about but me.

When I was little I use to believe that miniature versions of bands (like the Beatles) lived inside of the radio. I use to sit by the radio in the kitchen and stare at it, trying to figure out how they all fit in there.

I used to beleive that in order to pick up a radio station, you had to have it's bumper sticker on your car. As a DJ now, I'm glad this isn't the case.... because only a small amount of people actually display the stickers on their car! That wouldn;t work well when it comes to ratings time, would it?

top belief!

When I was in the 5th grade, I had an irrational fear that if I was humming a song, and then turned on the radio and that same song was playing, that a nuclear war or some other world-ending event would happen. Whenever I would turn on the radio, I would make sure to first start humming a song that I knew would not be playing (like She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain or something)... Goofy, I know.

When I was young, I used to believe that the songs that I heared on the radio, were realy put inside the radio, like a record or a tape.
I taught some man came around to do this, and that this happened when I was at school, because I never saw anyone doing this.

I grew up in Huntsville, AL. My dad, like almost everyone's dad in Huntsville, worked in the aerospace industry. Our house was decorated with satellite pictures from space. So when I listened to the radio, I thought that all of the remote broadcasts (from supermarket openings, car dealerships, etc.) came from the moon.
