Ed L telling his story at the 51st. Arkansas State Conv. Aug. 1991. A Navy then Air Force guy with a pretty amusing way of telling his story. I was interested in what he had to say about staying sober by momentum alone at the beginning of his sobriety.  

If you lose an airplane and cant tell them what you did with it, it gets their attention.


Jim P. presenting a step four workshop out of the big book in 2013, this is a very interesting format, it is Jim working with just four people in an informal setting where questions were asked and discussion had along the way. 2.25 hrs.


Ann C. got sober in 1948 and had 28 years sobriety at the time of this speak in 1976 where she is telling her story.


Panel Meeting: Walking through pain in sobriety at WACYPAA Las Vegas 2012

Diana C: Oceanside

Sandy B. from Tampa FL. at Jekyll Island, GA presenting "The Spiritual Life is Not A Theory" workshop given in 2001


Solent Mini Convention in Southampton England 2009 the theme is "A New Beginning"

Stella - Cathy - Ronnie each telling a bit of thier story.


Ancel C. telling his story, I have no idea when this was recorded, or where, it was quoted as humor in recovery.


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.

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