Peoples Temple Collection; Box 16, Virtual Item 25, Q575 - Interview with Jim Jones on Ukiah radio station

This tape consists of a Ukiah radio station interview of Jim Jones in 1973, about eight years after Peoples Temple migrated from Indianapolis to Ukiah. In it, Jones talks about what attracted him to the area, the relations which the church maintains with the community, and the problems which have discouraged some of its members.

The tape begins with the interview underway, as Jones describes some of the anonymous threats made against Temple members, including seniors, children — notably his own — and animals. He says the threats have arisen from a misunderstanding of what the church was about, and encourages those who disagree with him, "however hostile" they might be, to sit down and talk. The interviewer invites Jim to speak about his Indianapolis years and the decision to come to California

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