We use a generalized Lambert series identity due to the first author to present q-series proofs of recent results of Imamoğlu, Raum and Richter concerning recursive formulas for the coefficients of two 3rd order mock theta functions. Additionally, we discuss an application of this identity to other mock theta functions.
