Before digital radio, it was necessary to turn the dial/knob on the radio to find a station. This was called tuning in.
Before an advertisement (which is also called a commercial), the radio announcer would say something like, “Stay tuned for more great programming after these commercials.”
It was a friendly way of saying, “Don’t change to another radio station during the advertisements.”
The word tune has become a part of many conversational expressions.
In Blog 2, we use this expression as an informal, friendly way of saying, “Stay with us; we have more coming.”
See BLOG 002 example: Stay tuned, and in the next blog, I’ll talk about 3 ways to avoid being left behind – not in skiing, but in life.
