This week on the #BlackShoePodcast, Adam, Cari, and Bill are in the virtual studio in Brooklyn bantering about the takeaways from the game against UCF, Cari's Ireland experience, and what to expect this weekend against Terry Bowden's squad.

My son Ken and I are preparing a class titled "Bill W., Dr. Bob, and the Cure of Alcoholism: The Rest of the Story." And the "rest of the story" may surprise you when you see how much information has simply not reached AAs or the general public about Alcoholics Anonymous, its roots, its succession of programs, the content of those programs, the reason for their successes, and changes in A.A. itself.
The current three radio shows are about A.A.'s first historical epoch--the period when the first three AAs got sober before there were any 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, Big Books, war stories, or meetings like those today. We will show you the similarity of actions taken by the first three AAs and the useful picture they provide as to how the original, simple, effective A.A. ideas can be applied in recovery today. Our three presentations are of how AA #1, Bill W., got sober (something we have already presented); how AA #2, Dr. Bob, got sober (also presented); and how AA #3, Akron attorney Bill D., got sober. Tonight, we discuss Bill D.'s story.
AA # 3's story is important for at least two major reasons. First, because Bill D.'s release from an Akron hospital on July 4, 1935, "a free man" represented the first success of the original program Bill W. and Dr. Bob began developing that summer. Second, because it marked the founding of the first A.A. group in the world, Akron #1.
After presenting Bill D.'s story, I will review the techniques the three pioneers used, and show how they rested primarily on admission that they were licked, determination to quit and do whatever it took to accomplish that, a firm decision to entrust their lives to the care and direction of their Creator, taking their basic ideas from the Bible, and then reaching out wherever needed to those still suffering from alcoholism. Here we go!
Patterned after the typical format of an open meeting in a 12-step group, the show will be a speaker meeting. Guests will be from AA, NA or AlAnon and will share their perspective on what they were like, what happened and what they are like now.
Tonight's program includes another reason for your attending "The First International Alcoholics Anonymous History Conference," Sept. 6-7, 2013, in Portland, Maine. A strong request has been made that we provide on video a history of early Akron A.A. This will be produced in three stages: (1) tonight's sketch of the history; (2) a presentation at the Portland, Maine, A.A. history conference; and (3) a package of one or more videos that will feature my son Ken and me explaining the history and showing you some of the books and other materials that can be and have been used to document the history. And now, for tonight's summary.

Born on January 7th, 1990 in Akron, Ohio, Ricco Beard aka (L Dro) has been creating rhymes since he was a child and is destined for greatness. Raised by Sandra and Ricky Beard, L Dro is the youngest within his immediate family. Being raised in the troubled area of East Akron, influences and circumstances forced him to the streets.
The streets have always been and will always be a learning ground, a resourceful place of refuge from safety and trust. An oxymoron of sorts, the streets intentions are clear: to create ambition, goals and dreams whether positively so or more often than not, negatively so. Under this premise is where L – Dro found his voice.
Following course and armed with the ambition to win, his art form finally became his reality by signing with Major Hustle Entertainment in 2004. Since then, he has worked with such notable producers as Firestorm Entertainment, The Olympiks, Statik Selektah,
DarkChild Entertainment and Nottz with plenty others lined up. He also has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artist such as Young Jeezy, The Dip- lomats, and Fat Joe among others. He is currently on the Big Heff Industry Tour which will be stopping in fifteen major markets including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and Detroit among others. He is also doing his first mixtape called DroOhio hosted by world famous DJ Cannon with another mixtape from DJ Self shortly thereafter.
