radioShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
--I was sure that the sounds coming out of our stereo speakers were made by little men who lived inside the stereo cabinet. i was really excited because I thought the Monkees lived in there. I used to talk to them through the speaker. "I love you Davey. No, I love peter. No wait, Mickey."
I didn't know about radio stations - I always thought that radios knew who was listening to them, and played what that person liked.
My mom always listened to oldies' in the car. I didn't have my own radio until I was 11. This is when I found out there was more than one radio station!
when the song the 'entertainer' came on the car radio, I believed there was a complete orchestra inside actually playing the song.
The truck we had when I was little had an old radio with knobs for the volume and tuning. I thought the volume knob was remotely connected to the people's noses and turning the knob twisted their noses, therefor making them yell louder.
When I was about 8, I used to think there was a little band inside radio speakers, and everything on the radio was live.
When I was about six or seven I used to listen to the radio a lot. Then I wondered where the music came from. I used to think that there was little people singing in the radio and every time I went in the car I would turn the radio on and off and look into the speakers. I also thought why would people want to see famous people if you can see them in the speaker? It made no sense......
This isn`t really my belief, but my son`s. He was four years at that time, and had just got a small radio. Many times, ha asked me to open the radio, but he didn`t tell me why, until one day... Then he said: Mama, please open the radio, I want to see the little man inside it! I asked, what little man? He said: The man who is sitting inside the radio, talking and singing, I want to see him, can`t we let him out now?
I used to believe there were little people and whole tiny orchestras inside the speakers of my parents' stereo. How else could the voices and music come from them??
When I was young I had a very old fashioned radio that my dad gave to me.....and I used to think that all of the music and radio dj's were being broadcast from many years ago......I didn't realise that old radios could pick up modern broadcasts?????
When I was about 5 or 6, I used to believe that when I turned the radio off, then back on again later, it would carry on playing where it left off. After all when I did it quickly it did, and if I left it a while I couldn't remember what was on before anyway...
Or maybe they just had a really short playlist back then
I used to think a little man lived inside the radio. So I would always look into the speaker box to try to find him. I had no idea that these people were actually in a studio.
That inside the car radio were a quartet of very little men in red-and-white vertical striped suits with straw hats and canes, and they were singing (in harmony) the tunes I was hearing come out of the speaker. They were dancing too, though why I don't know, since I couldn't see them. Sometimes my invisible friend Fudda was one of them.
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.
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 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
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.
When I was younger I believed when you turned on the radio people were singing live to me and only me, when my friend asked me if I had heard Down town I said yes, so did many other people I thought WOW this singer must have sung this song more then 1,000,000 tines a day
Thinking there were gazillions of singers inside the speakers, i wondered how they would cut off when you pushed a button, and how they would know how to get louder and softer and stuff like that. I also couldnt figure out how they would know which one was supposed to sing. The thing that really puzzled me though was how they knew when to do the little ajsdkgmklfdjhlx,kfdjhg(jibberish) thing when the tapes were rewound....this was about when i was 4.
When I was about five my older brother was taking apart a broken radio (he wanted the magnet in the speaker). When it was open I was shocked to not see "the little people inside that play all the music." In my imagination, I even knew what they looked like.
