We watched TV a lot more often than we listened to the radio. So I thought radio had a video component that we couldn't see...when songs were playing, there was a music video. When the news was on, it was broadcast from a nice set just like the TV news. I thought that until I was 9 or 10 and actually visited a radio station.
when i was small we listened to the rugby on the wireless (radio) with our father the all blacks in south africa i coul not understand how that many people could fit inside that small radio
When I was a Kid I thought my Walkman was like a radio, and the music was live. So when I pressed play, Queen were in a studio ready to play.
When I was around 6 years old my parents had an old fashioned radio, you know the ones that are the same size as a small fridge - I used to think it would only broadcast 1940's music and news!
when i was about 3-4 i belived that the singers , dj's etc were tiny tiny people talkin to us or playing music and every so often i would talk into the speakers and say "are you ok in there?"
When I was little I used to believe that when the radio turned on in the car, that tiny people in the stereo would start to play the music I heard.
I used to believe that there was a bunch of little people that lived in the radio. I would always be afraid to turn it up too loud because i didn't want them to have to scream and get sore throats. If we were going on long trips I would insist that my parents turn off the radio every so often to give the people inside a break. I was about four or five when my mom finally figured out why i didn't like the music too loud.
I used to believe that inside the radio there were lots of real tiny people, (singers, journalists, entertainers) and thats how we could hear them.
i used to believe that when you turned the radio off, it would be at the exact same place when you turned it back on. It was kinda like the power button was a pause button. It never seemed to work though...
One of my first memories was riding in the car with my father, and seeing a little spider crawl into the tape deck. From that point on, i was convinced that it was the spider singing, talking and playing the music that came out of the radio. (my dad told me i was absolutely correct..boy did i feel stupid years later when i tried to tell somebody, convinced that i was right!)
As a kid i always used to sit in the back of the car. We always had the radio on and i used to think there was little men living in the speakers and talking and we could just hear them through that. I used to imagine them all sitting there and reading from a script. I used to try and look in and see if i could see them in there but i never could : ( I never believed this for the home radio though, only the car radio.
i used to think that people lived in the speakers of a radio. so whenever anyone was singing, i would go right up to the speaker and try to look inside. on one occassion, i though i actually saw a gospel choir inside...god knows where the hell that game from...
When i little i used to believe that whenever that inside the radio where these little people talking and singing so one time my parents where having a grown up party and they told e to put the news on the radio. So i turn it on and start talking back at what i thought were the little people inside the radio. My parents and all their friends started laughing. it was so embarassing
I used to believe that when ever a song was played on the radio in the car that the people that sang the song lived in the radio.
when the song the 'entertainer' came on the car radio, I believed there was a complete orchestra inside actually playing the song.
I always thought that the channels were set on your car radio and you couldn't change them. I'm ashamed to admit that I believed that until I was 24 years old and my husband explained it to me! Good thing this is an anonymous post because I'm a published novelist and not too proud of this!
i used to believe (because my dad told me so) that AM stood for "awful music" and FM stood for "fine music"
When I was little I used to think that the radio towers was where the people that played the songs worked. I thought that they had to climb up the radio tower since there wasn't a staircase or elevator. I remember thinking to myself that I would never ever work as a radio DJ!
I went with that theory for the longest time before my mom drove close to one. I asked her how they ever fit into the little lights and she just laughed at me and explained it.
When I was little, my dad told me that there was a one man band living in the cd player and he had a little piano as well. I could never figure out how he managed to play so many instruments and I would spend a lot of time looking through the ventilation slots for him. I also believed (stupidly) that the amplifyer was where the control man sat eating apples and twiddling the knobs. He He He
When I was kid, I honestly believed that there were little people inside the speakers of our car radio, and that's how we were able to hear the music!
