I used to believe that the radio was a luxury: my mother was the only one who could use it, and I was in a state of shock when I heard the people next to us listening to the exact same station. It took my mom a month to get through my head the the radio was free, and could be publicly accessed at any time.

I always wanted to be a disk jockey. I was going to be TJ the DJ. This all went fine until I learned that the DJ used records, then I lost interest. Up until that point I thought it was the actual bands playing because when I listened to the radio the DJ would all ways say, "Up next is....". I assumed they were all at the radio station waiting their turn to play.

I believed that when you heard someone singing on the radio, they were actually IN the radio singing into a microphone. I always wondered how they could change people so fast (like when the songs changed), until I asked my grandmother and she set me straight :)

As a child, I could never understand why people 'broke records' on the radio. I loved listening to records, and thought if they were just breaking them, they could send them to me instead.

I used to believe that there were actual little people that lived inside the radio to make the music come out. I remember staring at the speakers for hours wondering how they got in there and why I couldn't see them.

I used to believe there was a minature band living inside my radio and when we switched the radio on, they sang for us. When my mum turned the radio up really high once it broke and i assumed that they had all "lost there voices"

I was in prep. We had an old radio in our house which stopped working. When my dad opened it to change the batteries or something, we found a dead cockroach inside it and he made a joke that the "thing" inside the radio had just died which is why it stopped working. At that time I took that joke far too seriously and everytime we listened to a radio i used to think of how that "thing" inside it was doing it.

My dad works in radio, I didn't have a problem listening to him on air when he was at work. But the first time I heard him "on the radio" when he was at the house I got freaked out and thought that dad was a ventriloquist.

I also believed there were little people playing music in my parents radio until one day I took it apart-I thought I killed them.

I never got another one.

I used to believe that there was an actual band living in my radio when I was younger. Whenever you changed the station, then they would start playing another song. It explained why the same song played on two different stations.

I used to believe that bands and singers were actually in the radio station playing live over the radio. All day long, bands and singers rotated out of the station playing their songs.

When I was young my mother told me I could have this old radio we had for myself. I told her I didn't want an old radio because I thought it only played old songs!
