07 Jun: Take a Moment to Rewind on National VCR Day

Rewinding spools, chewed up tape, hoping your favorite television show recorded. If you’re feeling a little nostalgic, that’s A-OK because June 7 is National VCR Day.

The video cassette recorder (VCR) was a fixture in many American homes in the 1980s and ‘90s.

It made its debut at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in 1970 and would eventually give previous home-viewing technology a run for its money.

In 1983, the year Sound of Music became Best Buy, we started selling the tech that transformed the in-home entertainment industry.
