"Radio Dreams of a radio symbolize your mind's ability to transmit thoughts, ideas, and information beyond your five senses. They could be giving you a sense of the wavelength of thought, feeling, and vibration on which you've been resonating. Consider the message or music that you hear from the radio. "
