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

Geraldine D sober in 1947

Geraldine D was an early member of AA sober in 1947, she knew Bill W and the majority of the earliest members of AA. Gerry is telling her story at 42 years sober and 82 years old at the 14th Rogue Roundup held Grants Pass Oregon in 1989. She is one of my favorite early member speakers and this is a great quality recording for 1989.

This sounds a bit fuzzy for the first 4 min then it clears right up. This one is a bit of AA history and a bit of nostalgia for your podcaster since I was at this meeting. In 1995 AA held its 60th Anniversary Conference in San Diego California with 56,000 people in attendance.

The theme for the convention was A.A. Everywhere – Anywhere. It was the very first time many Eastern European countries had been able to attend an international AA event including Russia. This meeting features members speaking about their first encounter with AA and the founding of AA in multiple Eastern Europe countries and in Russia.

This audio is no longer available, it was removed  at the request of Stepping Stones.

This one is not an AA meeting per se, so if you need to hear a meeting please choose another from our list. This is for those of you that occasionally enjoy a bit of a deep dive into some AA history.  (Repost)

If you are even slightly interested in learning more about Bill and Lois and AAs creation I really recommend giving this a listen.

An excellent presentation by the executive director of Stepping Stones about Bill & Lois and the AA Way of Life, at the 1st Annual Jersey Shore Roundup, NJ. Recordings of both Bill and Lois are part of the presentation and there is about 2 min of Bill playing his violin. Stepping Stones foundation was founded by Lois as a way to pass on their home and its contents to the future, it has been a historic landmark since 2012. http://www.steppingstones.org
