Peoples Temple Collection; Box 18, Virtual Item 33, Q650 Part 2, Jack Beam gives biographical sketch of Jim Jones

In this short tape, Jack Beam relates a couple of biographical snippets of Jim Jones’ life in Indiana. The context of both the conversation and of the stories that Beam recounts is abbreviated so that it is hard to discern whether all of his remembrances are of Jones. He does, however, talk about Jones using his radio program one night to “confess to … the radio audience that I don’t have all the answers,” and inviting those who do to come and “reason together.” Beam adds that that program was the hook that brought in Archie Ijames, who never left, despite periodic difficulties with Jones.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
