I used to believe that when you turned the radio off the same song that was playing would continue playing when you turned the radio back on.

i thought that when a song played on the raido it was also playing on mtv. one day i was at my house listening to the radio and the paula abdule song "opposites attract" came on, (which i might add was my favorite song at the time and i loved the music video with the cartoon cat) so i ran into the living room where my mom was vacuuming and started freaking out and yelling for her to put the TV on. i was very disappointed to find out that my favorite video was not playing on mtv the same time the song was on the radio.

My mother used to believe that there were very tiny people inside radios that gave you the news, or made the music, or whatever else went on. One day, she asked how the people got inside the radio, and people laughed. I believe that was about when she found out that there were no people in the radios.

I used to listen to the radio as a kid - unfortunately I didn't know you could change from AM to FM.... the station was always on Motown and the oldies.... I actually thought that the music was modern - i rarely even heard up to date music....

I used to believe that people were inside the radio. And when I say "radio" I'm referring to the electronic equipment.
I remember wondering how so many people such as DJ's, singers, and bands could fit into such a small space. :)

In our town we have a radio station that has had an ad that runs about selling ads on that station. The ad itself says "Radiads, the sound seller". Since I was a kid, I am now 36, I always hear tha ad as "Radiads, the sound cellar". I picture a dark cellar with lots of reel to reel tape and cassettes.
Also in "Papa was a rolling stone" I always thought that they sang, "...and when he died, all he ever left us was a loan". He left them in debt.

We listened to the radio a lot in my mom's car. I thought that when you turned the radio off, the DJ stopped playing the song. I would flip through the stations trying to find the song that we left off on.

There used to be a radio station in Cleveland that called itself Jammin' 92. I first heard of it around the year 1992. After that, I was confused as to why they were still using the 92 in their name when it was 1993. The station's frequency never occured to me.

When I got my first clock radio, I believed that, if I changed the time on the clock, then the news for that time would be broadcast on the All-News channel. For example, if the clock said 10 AM and it was really 4 PM, I would hear the 10 AM news.

The people talking on my mums radio were actually tiny people inside the radio - one man and one woman it seemed, about 2 inches tall. I couldn't figure out where the music came from, or how they kept so quiet when the radio was switched off.

Up until I was about 8 I thought that there was a tiny eclectic band that was trapped in radios. I always tried to open them to feed them, but I never could.

When my mom took me somewhere, she always had the radio on. I couldn't figure out why the same song wasn't playing when we got back!

I always think that the earth end at the big wall and no one can go on the other site of the wall.

I believe that there are tiny people under the radio who talk and sings through the radio and they live there.

I once burnt my finger by poking it into the bottom of our old valve radio. I was trying to get at the little people who lived in there.

When my mom was a kid, all she had was a radio to listen to and she used to believe that there were little people living inside of it talking and playing music... She never told me this until I was much older - coincidentally, I thought the exact same thing when I was about the same age as she was.

I was born in 1960, so when I was a small child, cars had push button radios, where pushing the buttons changed the station. I explain this for those younger generations who don't know what these are. There were small gaps around the buttons where light escaped from the internal light of the radio. I remember looking inside trying to see the musicians who were making the music I was hearing on the radio. I don't recall how old I was at the time, hopefully this is a very early memory!

When I was little, I thought that little people lived inside radios, and they were the ones that made the music come out. Boy was I wrong. LOL.
