Dr. Bob's last major talk in Detroit, MI. Dec. 1948, this had a pretty nasty hum in the background, I managed to get most of that out. Considering the year it was recorded, once the hum was removed its a pretty good recording, it ends a little abruptly.

Frank S, one of the first 100 members of AA, 44 years sober at the time of this speak. No info about where or when this was recorded. It is an older recording and I removed as much background noise as I could, it sounds a little hollow but it is listenable.

Evelyn T. speaking at the 50th Annual Buffalo Fall Convention Buffalo NY, 10/91. She is a very funny woman. I really enjoyed listening to her, she got sober in 1953 and was 71 at the time of this speak (38 years).

There is a bit of a pitched tone running through this audio I managed to dull it a bit, it is a little annoying but she was so impressive to listen to I thought I would put it up regardless.

It seems appropriate to put a couple of the earliest members of AA up as the speakers on Memorial Day weekend.

Charlie B the 6th member of AA speaking on his 92nd birthday in NY in 1982, he was sober 48 years at the time of the speak, he got sober in 1935. He also talks about yesterdays speaker Bill D.

Unfortunately this ends abruptly in the middle of a thought he is expressing.

It seems appropriate to put a couple of the earliest members of AA up as the speakers on Memorial Day weekend. (tomorrow AA #6)

Bill D the third member of AA speaking in Canton, OH in 1950. AKA: The man on the bed.

The quality of this audio is just ok, its about as good as I expect for 1950, I have cleaned it up as much as I could.

Marty M the first woman in AA sober since 1939 speaking in New York at the Greenfield Hill Group in 1980.

She was the author of the story - Women Suffer Too - in the 2nd edition of the big book.

I belonged there.

Ebby T - An early member of AA referred to as Bill W's sponsor, speaking in San Jose in 1962. Well worth a listen if you are interested in early AA.

Pretty good audio quality for the 60's
