I used to believe that the music on the radio stopped when you turned it off. When you turned the radio on again it would be in that same spot of the same song. I never tested this idea (obviously) but merely assumed it to be true.

When I was about 5 or 6, I used to believe that there were actually tiny musicians inside radios playing the songs. Since our radio in the old days only had one or two stations, I thought they switched the people paying when you changed the station.

I used to believe that when I heard people on the radio (not the presenters) they had walked along a really rickety walkway and were speaking to the presenter through a small window. No idea where it came from and, frankly, I don't want to know.

I used to beleive that radio DJ's would sing all the songs... if there was a lady singing a song it was his wife or sister... hehe. I thought that for quite a long time....

I used to believe that when I listened to the car radio, the D.J.'s were actually INSIDE the radio. The ironic thing is that I'm now a morning D.J. and no, I'm not inside the radio!

I used to think that what was on the radio was unique to each radio-- so, if I didn't like what was on, say, 93.3 FM on my clock radio, I'd get my Walkman, tune it to 93.3 FM, and expect something different to be playing.

When I was a wee lad a popular radio station I listened to changed frequency. On their last day broadcasting on the old freq they played a looped recording informing listeners of the change. Due to the fact I didn't understand looped recordings I couldn't believe they found someone who was prepared to sit there for 24 hours announcing this fact over and over, and how did they manage to make it sound the same each time?

I used to believe that my Dad had his dinner every day with Roy Orbison (the albino singer). It was only in later life I discovered that he meant he had his dinner with Roy Orbison records playing on the radio.

Listening to children's favourites on the radio in the fifties I heard "home on the range" - one of the lyrics was "seldom is heard a discouragin' word." I fretted about why the cowboys wandered around muttering "seldom" in a depressed state!
