i used to believe little people lived in the radio. one day i took my dad's transistor radio to apart - looking for the people. you can imagine dad's face - when i told him the 'little people had run away - after work
i used to think that if u spoke into the speakers while the radio was on that the people at the station would hear u.
I used to think that whenever a song came on the radio, the person who sang the song was singing from a phone booth somewhere into the radio. I thought the radio stations called them up whenever they wanted to hear the song.
We listened to the radio a lot in my mom's car. I thought that when you turned the radio off, the DJ stopped playing the song. I would flip through the stations trying to find the song that we left off on.
There used to be a radio station in Cleveland that called itself Jammin' 92. I first heard of it around the year 1992. After that, I was confused as to why they were still using the 92 in their name when it was 1993. The station's frequency never occured to me.
I grew up in Huntsville, AL. My dad, like almost everyone's dad in Huntsville, worked in the aerospace industry. Our house was decorated with satellite pictures from space. So when I listened to the radio, I thought that all of the remote broadcasts (from supermarket openings, car dealerships, etc.) came from the moon.
As a child I believed that the music coming out of a car radio was the same age as the car. So if you drive a 55 chevy what comes out of the radio is that era's music. A newer car, newer music.
I believed that when you turned on the radio, the sound came through long tubes extending from your radio to chambers in the sewer system (I'm from Paris), where people were singing or talking - because the sewers obviously were the only place in town with enough space to properly amplify so many voices. I imagined they could look out the grates while they worked and see cars zooming by...
When I was a child I believed that the music and voices that came from the radio were made by itsy bitsy mice stuck inside. I eventually broke a radio to pieces just to see for myself.
when my friend was little she used to believe that the people in the radio could hear her back.She believed this until she was 6
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 used to believe that if you spoke into the speakers that they would hear it at the radio station.
I used to believe that in the radio speakers, there were tiny people that lived there and a scary man would hold a gun and force the other people to sing.
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 listening to the radio as a child, I often heard the d.j. stating that to win such and such prize, you had to wait for the "q-ta-call." I was unsure what the q-ta-call was...if it was a special noise or sound that told you when to call. A couple of years ago, a d.j. who spoke more slowly than the others helped me understand what a "q-ta-call" is....its the "cue to call."
i used believe that there were two little men strapped to the bottom of our car that were really good musicans,(sp?)and they would play every song on the radio. (they must have some good vocal cords) I used to look for them, and once i brought food to them!
My mom used to tell me that if I turned a radio on and went away it would break. I guess she did it to keep me from wasting power. But I beleived her for the next few years, then I started to wonder just how does the radio know when you leave it? Now I am 14 and I still get a little nervous sometimes if I leave a radio on while I'm away.
I used to believe that when I listened to the car radio, the D.J.'s were actually INSIDE the radio. The ironic thing is that I'm now a morning D.J. and no, I'm not inside the radio!
I used to believe that you could only listen to 'AM' radio in the morning, and 'FM' radio at night, though i could never figure out why it was called FM radio when it was PM at night.
i thought that when a band came on the radio that they had been shrunk down in order to fit into a radio & be broadcast in homes. i remember trying to take off the face of the radio to see if i could see through it to the beatles. my little fantasy was blown when my sister was on the radio when she was asked a question at a basketball game. i was suspicious that she wouldn't let herself be shrunk so i asked her when she got home... she laughed for quite a while.
