Hit Pause for VCR Day

National VCR Day is June 7th, so it’s time to pull out your favorite VHS tapes and binge. (What—you don’t have any VHS tapes? Well, I know where you can get some—lots of ‘em—cheap!)

The VHS format, alas, has been pushed aside by DVD, Blu-ray and streaming formats, but we still keep a supply of them at HPB. And we found out that one of our very own, Dallas District Trainer Ben Jousan, is an avid collector. He even appears in the wonderful documentary about VHS, Rewind This!, from 2013. We recently got Ben to do a little show & tell for us, walking through some of his collection’s highlights with the Buy Guy. Check it out. (And you don’t have to rewind!)

I’ve got a pack of microwave popcorn and my clamshell-case copy of Swiss Family Robinson and am ready to celebrate!

  1. Dear HFB,

    Sorry for the constructive criticism, but your new website is not very user-refreindly for one simple reason: Your search field is in the wrong position. Place it ABOVE the heading fields and ALL WILL BE WELL.
