So, when Video Sanctum main-brain Benny Junko approached us with the intention of using our channel as a platform to share the hidden yet impossibly complete history of Audio/Video Plus, we were all aboard, dude. But first, a bit of information and contextualization is in order, just to get everyone up to VHSpeed.     The AVP Storefront, now vacant, after many years of video excellence.
