How can you fix a VHS tape that is stuck at one spot and will not advance?

To fix a VHS tape that is stuck at one spot and will not advance, just press the socket at the back of the VHS tape with a pen. The small button will be released, allowing for the white reels to be turned in any of the directions. Turn the reels with a pen, fingers or scissors. When the reels turn, you will be able to find out what caused the blockage. The VHS tape can be unwinded this way. It is common for one of the reels' wheel to get stuck on the VCR's mechanisms while the tape is being played.

Is anyone selling a CD of Dick Clark 20 years of Rock and Roll?

According to many searches in the past years since 1998 this particular compilation was never released in CD format. I have the original 8Track since 1976. You can find the 8track and LP's on Ebay and Amazon. FYI almost all the songs on the 8Track are cut in order to fit the 30 tracks on the 8track. This was disappointing discovering in my later years verses and in some cases rearranging of the actual song were done.
