My grandpops tricked me into thinking a lil man lived in our stereo, and he had a pet bird. When I looked into the CD drawer, he'd whistle like a bird and make funny voices. I'd sit there for ages talking to the man in the radio.

I used to believe that the DJ on the radio was the same person all the time, 24/7, and that that he'd sleep during the advert breaks. I also thought that all the songs they played were performed live by the singers!

I used to think that there was a man playing guitar under my moms back seat in the car. He did all of the music that we heard on the radio. He was so talented and could sound like anyone. I always felt bad because he couldn't get out and eat, so I stuffed my McDonalds french fries into the cracks of the seat.

When I was about 3, I didn't understand the difference between listening to a tape and listening to the radio.
Sometimes, my parents would tape record me singing nursery rhymes and play it back to me.
I would often request to hear, "the little girl on the radio", but never questioned why she sounded exactly like me...

When I was about six or seven I used to listen to the radio a lot. Then I wondered where the music came from. I used to think that there was little people singing in the radio and every time I went in the car I would turn the radio on and off and look into the speakers. I also thought why would people want to see famous people if you can see them in the speaker? It made no sense......

When I was a young girl, I would lay down on the rug in front of the stereo speakers, and try to peek inside at the little tiny people in there playing that music. And wonder how in the world they could change the style and sound of the music so easliy, with out ever leting me see them. It would occupy my time for hours.

When I was little and obsessed with the New Kids On the Block, I used to sit in my bedroom listening to the cassettes, staring into the speakers, because I actually thought that they were in there singing to me. I couldn't understand how they were in there, but I new they were. OH GOD!

I lived in Boston, and there was (is still) a man who did the news call Listo Fisher. He would end the news by saying "This is Listo Fisher". But I always thought he was imparting an important citation to the news... I heard him say "This is List Official", which to me meant, that was the official news, and that proved it!

For the longest time, I believed that the songs you hear on the radio were sung by cockroaches inside...

i used to believe that inside the radio in our kitchen were all these people that sat in chairs and waited their turn to talk or sing their songs... they sat there patiently, lined up in a hallway, waiting their turn at the microphone all day...

When I was little at home all day with my mum, she listened to a radio show that had traffic news at regular intervals. At the beginning and end of the traffic news segments, there was a jingle with people singing "Drive safely!".

I thought they were singing "Christ save me!"

I used to believe the static noise you hear when you play around with the radio dial was actually messages from space. I would listen to it for hours on end trying to decipher the alien language.

When I heard the Shipping Forecast on the radio and they gave a weather report for Dogger (i.e. as in Dogger Bank), I thought that was the name of a dog. I once had some cut-out animals on a breakfast cereal packet, including a dog which I named “Dogger”, the name I had got off the Shipping Forecast! Another thing that used to puzzle me on the Shipping Forecast was when they say “Showers, good”. I thought, how can the weather be good if there are showers? Only when I was much older did I find out that “good” referred to visibility, not the weather!

Growing up in the 1970's, I had an olive green transitor radio and I thought there were tiny little people playing songs just for me! They knew my favorite songs..."Joy to the World" & "American Pie"!! they played them all the time.

When I was a very little girl - 4, 5, 6? - we had a console-style stereo. It was about 4 feet long, and 3 feet high (with six-inch spindle legs). It had radio, 8-track, and a turntable. I was convinced that a group of small people lived inside somewhere and that was how the music was made!
