I used to believe little people sit inside the radio and sing the songs and stuff. When no one was around I used to check through the small holes so that I can talk to them.

My parents used to listen to Radio 4 whilst cooking or what have you, and I always used to try and get involved with the Seaman's Weather Forecast, which I mistook for a very long intellectual gameshow. The 'presenter' would ask 'Llandudno' whether 'South-Westerly' was 'moderate' or 'good'. I always assumed an answer never came because the contestants were busy writing them down.

When I was little, I never understood how the volume on a tv or radio worked. I just assumed that when you turned the dial up or down, it made the people on tv/radio sing or talk louder.

I used to think that when you turned off the radio, all the words and sounds would pile up in a jumble then come spilling out when you turned it back on.

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.

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 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!

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.

My friend used to think that when you turned the radio off and turned it back on it would start from the same song like a CD.

when i was 4 or 5 years old i regularly used to listen programmes which came on radio, one very funny thing about the speaker inside that instrument i believed that whoever the people are speaking on the radio they are just sitting inside the speaker and i often used to abuse them loudly when they did not respond to me for what i ordered them to speak to.

I used to believe when I was 9, that when I listened the radio, singers sang in the same time.

I used to believe that my grand-mother was always old.

I used to think there were tiny people inside the radio. I imagined a whole house decorated inside with tiny furniture. I would knock and ask them to come out. They never did.

I remember when I was little I use to think that when you were in a car listening to a song on the radio, that the next time you got in the car, the song you were listening to before, would just start where it left off.

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 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!

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...

I used to think that if you began in the morning you would easilly have enough time in one day on any given radio station to play all the records that have ever been made and that this was what music stations did, they just rearranged the order ever day

We had a car that had mechanical push buttons for selecting the station. I thought there were only five stations in the whole world. Then I discovered that if you pushed the button reeeaaaaalllll slow that you could get these secret "in-between" stations that no one knew about but me.

when i was a kid i had a small cassette player. i have to say that music was the best thing in the world at that time for me. one day my "magic box" broke. i didn't understand what happened and i thought that if i concentrate hard and ask my player to work again, it would do it for me! but it never did. I tried so hard for a long time...
