Joe McQ. & Charlie P. met in 1973 when Joe introduced Charlie as the AA speaker at an Al-Anon Convention. Joe had wondered if Charlie might be the country-western singer Charlie Pride. “He wasn’t even the right color,” Joe laments. They instantly discovered their mutual fascination with AA’s basic text the ‘Big Book’. What interested them most was that the ‘Big Book’ was written in a particular sequence to convey certain ideas. They would frequently meet to discuss the book, often driving 225 miles to meet in each other’s homes. The result was an understanding that has benefitted generations of members since that time.

Soon they were planning meetings in hotel rooms at AA conventions in Oklahoma and Arkansas, and within a few years, the meetings grew in popularity. In 1977, some members met in a Tulsa, OK hotel room for a discussion of the Big Book. One asked Joe & Charlie to come to his home group to present a program on the book. An AA taper made a four tape set of their presentation and called it “The Big Book Study”. The recordings were gradually circulated throughout the fellowship and invitations were received for Joe & Charlie to present the study at AA conventions, roundups and special events. By 1980, there had been about eight studies offered.

Studies have been held in forty-eight of the United States and most Canadian provinces. Additionally, Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands have all hosted the Big Book Study seminars with Joe & Charlie.

The Joe and Charlie tapes are public domain and so are offered here free of charge.
