History of Dicobe Media
Dicobe Media was started in 1980 by three recovering alcoholics seeking to provide quality and affordable recording services to the AA community. Dick M. was the driving force behind the company for many years, using his experience in radio and television advertising to build a company known from coast to coast for integrity and service to the recovering community. His wife Peggy M. and longtime friend Nobe D. were also notable executives within the company for many years. As is required by the traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous, Dicobe Media is not affiliated with AA or any recovery group, but respect for this community is foremost among the companies’ values.
Dicobe Media grew quickly and its employees were soon recording over 100 AA and Al-Anon Family Group conventions a year. Among these: Founders Day in Akron, Ohio, the Cornhusker Roundup in Omaha, Nebraska, and various International Conventions. Working Closely with convention committees, Dick built solid and enduring relationships with committees and speakers around the country that last to this day.
Tens of thousands of people also purchase recordings, books, and other recovery oriented merchandise via mail order, phone, and website. To this end, Dicobe Media has amassed the largest archive of AA and Al-Anon Family Group recordings in the world. Over 65,000 talks are preserved within this archive, spanning over 70 years, with recordings dating back to 1947.
In 2012, after a long career, Dick M. retired. Bill G. and his wife Carole, both long-time employees of Dicobe, In partnership with Kenny N. and his wife Liz, purchased Dicobe Media. Their commitment to quality, customer services, and adhering to the same principles that Dick founded the company on made the transition seamless.
