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 little, we mainly listened to classical music on the radion. It never occurred to me that the station was playing records.
I was sure that radio stations were huge, with many different studios filled with symphony orchestras. And every time a different selection was played, that meant that a conductor had cued up a different orchestra.
i used to believe there were little people in the radio talking and singing.
as a child of about 5 years old i used to think when listening to the radio and you turned ot off, when you turn it on an hour later, the programmes continued from when you turned it off. i must have been about 7 or 8 before i knew different. the worst thing about this is the fact that i can still remember an arguement regarding this with my best friend. so can he.
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!
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. :)
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 when you turned the radio off the same song that was playing would continue playing when you turned the radio back on.
I used to believe that almost every song on the radio was directed to me.
When I was yougner and I used to listen to the Top 10 of the radio station, I figured that there was a group of about 10 librarians who came up with the list. I didn't know that you had to call in and everybody's requests were tallied. haha.
I used to believe that when I was in the car listening to the radio, that the singers were actually in the trunk playing and that they were tiny hahaha stupid
When I was little my mom listened to the radio and I thought that some guy had a radio and spoke into the radio and the sound would come out of the other radios. So, when I was little I spoke into the radio and thought people around the world heard me and that I was then famous.
I use to believe that there were tiny people in the radio singing the songs. I use to sit in front of the radio "telling" the people inside that the song they just sang was either good or bad.
For the longest time, I believed that the songs you hear on the radio were sung by cockroaches inside...
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 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.
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 old radios would only ever play old music
I thought that if you turned off your radio when a song was on, the song would stop until you turned the radio back on. (And start where it left off) :-)
I used to believe there was a lady sitting in the radio, singing.
