Peoples Temple Collection; Box 21, Virtual item 4, Q732b- Jones reads news of April 8, 1978
April 8, 1978

Jim Jones reads the news. He reads slowly, in part because he is tired – so tired, he says in the second segment of reading, that he fell asleep as he read, then awakened to find himself still holding the microphone – and in part because he is simultaneously listening to the radio behind him. The pauses between phrases and sentences are often long enough that the NBC broadcast in the background can be understood, as well as how Jones repeats (or sometimes re-interprets) what he hears.

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