Peoples Temple Collection; Box 20, Virtual Item 6, Q696- Jim Jones interview on TV talk show
circa 1973

This tape consists of two conversations, one on each side of the tape, which appear to be unrelated to each other. Side B includes references to Watergate hearings, which would date it to either 1973 or 1974, but there are no such indicators for Side A.

Part 1 of the tape consists of a conversation of relatively poor quality between a young woman and an elderly black woman, both members of Peoples Temple, and takes place in the home or apartment of the elderly woman. The elderly woman’s name is either Mira or Mara or Elmira, but none of those names appear on the lists of Jonestown residents. The younger woman never identifies herself.

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