Lonnie from Washington, DC, whose story appears in the June issue of Grapevine, shares with Don and Sam about growing up on the streets, landing on the skid row of his own couch and crying out for Divine help. Now he sits up front at meetings to pay attention and hear, because he must deal with sobriety every day. Caller Spencer requests hearing Bill W.’s talk from the 1950 Convention, and we play excerpts of Bill talking about the Traditions and the soon-to-be Conference.
