Jimmy B speaking at the Into Action Fellowship speaker meeting in Suisun CA in 2011
Since we had Bill W speaking yesterday it seems appropriate to have Dr Bob the other founder of AA speak today. He is telling his story about his first 14 years in AA, this was recorded in 1949. The end if this speak (about 6 min) is a bit of Dr Bobs last talk in 1950.
There are no where near as many recordings of Dr Bob as there are of Bill W and the ones that are around are generally fairly bad, this one had a nasty hum, but it cleaned up really well and is one of the best I have heard of Dr Bob.
Bill W one of the co-founders of AA speaks about the Big Book. This consists of two seperate speaks, the first is at the 30th anniversary founders day in Acron. The second speak may be from the same event but there is no way to know, the introduction of Bill the 2nd time does mention the 30th anniversary.
