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)

Liz B was 55 Years Sober at the time she told her story at this unknown event held in Richmond VA in 2007, she is very enthusiastic in her speak and has a ton of energy. The volume on this might feel a bit low, she has a tendency to go from quiet to very loud in an instant so I pulled the gain way down in attempt to save your ears, enjoy!

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.

Topic: Gratitude (Bill W)

I was thinking the topic of gratitude might be a good one for the day after a holiday, searching my archives for a recording with that as the main topic I ran across this one from AA founder Bill W. Bill starts with the topic of gratitude and moves on to his story and how that led to the creation of AA at an unknown event.

This is from June of 1954 and I was able to remove the nasty hum it had, the result is a pretty good recording for 1954. This runs just a little over an hour and the first 40 min the sound quality is pretty good all things considered, the last 20 min the sound isnt as clear, it gets a bit more muddy and I couldnt fix that but it is listenable and if it annoys, turn it off.
