To dream that you are listening to the radio represents one sided communication. You may be listening to someone that doesn’t listen to you. It may also reflect constant orders or instructions that you can’t discuss or debate. Situation or agenda that you have no control over. A one way flow of ideas. Hearing the radio may also symbolize the “voice in your head” that you keep listening to.
Negatively, a radio may reflect eavesdropping on other people. It may also reflect the one way nature of authoritarian control that doesn’t listen at all.
Alternatively, listening to the radio may represent your feelings about ESP, psychic, or telepathic communication you believe you are experiencing.
To dream of a radio being turned off may represent your unwillingness to listen to someone that is doing all the talking or decision-making. You may be tired of not being listened to or included.
To dream of changing the radio station represents a wish to be directed or informed differently. Preferring to be walked through a situation by someone different.
Example: A dreamer heard the radio repeatedly saying over and over “In the name of the Fuhrer, In the name of the Fuhrer.” In waking life this dream occurred to a German living in Nazi Germany during the war. The dream may have reflected the person’s growing unease about one way nature of the Nazi authority that society seemed to blindly follow and the growing use of propaganda.
