    Depends on if one has a mess of old video tapes like he probably does…

    Is there a sign at the entrance to town saying: “Crooks and Charlatans Welcome”?

    It’s usually better to get separate machines for video tapes and DVD’s.

    Reminds of the old XT computer all in 1clone that had the pc processor board built into the monitor with a ribbon printer
    attached to the top of the monitor Great as long as nothing broke down. In the 60’s and prior there was many variations of cabinets with the TV (60’s and 50’s).Radio 30’s – 60’s), and
    Phonographs (30’s – 60’s). A few had 8 track players also
    If one piece of the equipment broke expensive to fix unless it was a tube the TV needed

    @Robert: This is just a continuation of Scancarelli’s tribute to the supporting characters on Jack Benny’s radio show. The race course tout was usually voiced by the late Sheldon Leonard. He gave advice in racing terms about everything except racing. He would be off to the side when Jack had to make a decision in a store, train station, etc, and interrupted by saying to Jack: “Come here bud.”

    More about the character from Wikipedia: In radio, Leonard played an eccentric racetrack tout on The Jack Benny Program in the late 1940s and early ’50s. His role was to salute Benny out of the blue in railroad stations, on street corners, or in department stores (“Hey Bud, come here a minute”), ask Benny what he was about to do, and then proceed to try to argue him out of his course of action by resorting to inane and irrelevant racing logic. Ironically, as “The Tout,” he never gave out information on horse racing, unless Jack demanded it. One excuse the tout gave was “Who knows about horses?”
