Jack B. (sober in 1947) from Shennarock NY speaking in Toronto Ontario Canada on April 1st 1973.  One of his past jobs was as a wheel-man for the mob, hes got quite a story and he tells it in a way that might make you laugh a bit. This ends abruptly as he is thanking the audience.

Marty M from NYC was the first woman in AA, her story is printed in the (2nd Ed.) Big Book under the title of, Women Suffer Too. Marty was speaking at the 16th Southeast Conference held in Louisville Ky in 1966 (great quality recording).

Marty got sober in March of 1939 and passed away in July of 1980, if you would like to learn a bit more about her - Wikipedia

She also wrote a number of books about alcoholism, most are out of print but some used copies are available (I really like her descriptive titles).

Ebby T is the man Bill W referred to as his sponsor, he is also the man that introduced Bill to the Oxford group, eventually leading to the formation of AA. Ebby had a tumultuous path in sobriety, regardless he remained a lifelong friend of Bill W. He tells some of the story about the formation of AA.

If you have any interest there is a pretty good book about him: "Ebby: The Man Who Sponsored Bill W." It is available HERE

He is followed by Icky S another early member of AA. This was recorded in Kansas City in 1960 and for an old recording its very good. I did make a couple of small edits, I pulled the volume way down on the applause because it was painfully harsh and cut the length of some it as well.

Marty M author of the chapter - Women Suffer Too, sober in 1940, she is one of the first female members of AA and was the first lesbian member of AA. This is her last talk given in 1960, she passed away in 1980.

I had to do much processing to this audio file to remove heavy background noise, as a result the voice is much cleaner, however that type of processing makes the applause sound like a jet flying overhead, there were a couple of places the applause was sustained, I shortened those applause sections.

Dick P from Cleveland OH and sober in 1940 is the speaker at this meeting held in Akron Ohio on the anniversary of an unknown meeting and time. The information I could find on him was sparse but I have the impression he was one of the folks involved in the first translation of the Big book into the Spanish language. (Please let me know if I have that wrong)

Bill W speaking in Atlanta July 1951, this is an hour and 20 min long and covers many topics, a great bit of AA history.

This is very listenable for a 1951 recording, I managed to get most of the hum out, you'll notice a few artifacts and there are a couple of sections with a weird buzz, but those only last a few seconds. (Repost from 2017)

AA Beginners Class: Mike takes a group all the way through the steps over a period of four weeks. 

Based on AA beginners classes popular in the 1940s that were conducted by different groups of AA. I was a little fascinated by this bit of AA history I knew nothing about. I did a little research and have reprinted a lengthy article about the beginner classes on the SoberCast.com website.

There are a number of questions asked during the workshop that are impossible to hear, but the answers make most of the questions fairly clear. Recorded in 2009, this workshop is 4 hrs long. Repost from 2017
