Stay tuned
In 1967, LSD and counter-culture advocate Timothy Leary produced an album mirroring his famous call to "turn on, tune in, drop out." Though it's unlikely to have made Billboard's top 100 list, his ideas of tuning in and dropping out sparked a worldwide movement that forever changed the culture. (The album's available on Spotify if you're curious) Though the days of "tuning in" to radio signals through the use of a tuning coil are long gone, the phrase remains a part of our collective lexicon. We "tune" our systems, "tune out" that which we don't want to hear, and "stay tuned" to what interests us. In fact, we have been tuning for millennia though that isn't what we always called it. Tune is a variant of the word tone. We tune a string to arrive at the desired frequency. We tune our system for the best tonal balance. Once adjusted we're tuned in.
