    AHH...THE CLASSIC VCR AND WHEN INTRODUCED, THEY REVOLUTIONALIZED THE WAYS IN WHICH WE BEGAN TO UTILIZE OUR TELEVISIONS, NOT JUST FOR NETWORK AND CABLE T.V. VIEWING ANY LONGER..LIVING ROOMS BECAME COMMERCIAL FREE THEATRE MOTION PICTURE VIEWING IN THE PRIVACY OF YOUR OWN HOME, NO MORE EXPENSIVE POPCORN AND FIGHTING CROWDS, IT CHANGED OUR HOME VIEWING HABITS FOREVER.
    THESE WERE NOT CHEAP WHEN FIRST PUT ON THE MARKET, SOME WERE A COUPLE OF CAR PAYMENTS IN COST.
    RECORDING FROM TELEVISION TO A BLANK TAPE BECAME A POPULAR PAST TIME, BEING ABLE TO PRE-PROGRAM TO RECORD YOUR FAVORITE SHOW, SPORTING EVENT OR WHATEVER WAS COMING ON.
    IN TODAY'S WORLD, ONE CAN JUST MERELY GO TO THE INTERNET AND WATCH WHATEVER YOUR HEARTS DESIRE, BUT BEFORE "WWW" BECAME HOUSEHOLD IN 1992, IT WAS THE VCR AND ITS COUSIN, THE DVD PLAYER, OF WHEN FIRST INTRODUCED, THEY WERE QUITE COMMONLY COMBINED WITH A VCR AS DUAL COMBO...AHH..IN THE WORDS OF THE TUNE FROM THE T.V. SHOW 'ALL IN THE FAMILY'.."THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!"

    THANK YOU,
    T.

      Oh, good heavens...if VCR's are officially "collectible" now I've gotta bunch more work to do, digging 'em all out for photos and etc...I *do* still have one or two of those old 'car payment to buy' models, besides all the newer plastic ones...I'm old enough to remember the SONY reel to reel video machines (pre 'videocassette', that is) that cost more like the entire car....?? <lol>
