Daily Mirror fan Karie Bible of Film Radar reports the death of theater organist Bob Mitchell. Mitchell was a regular feature of the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats series. He was quite frail at this year’s event but it was good to see him.

 

Mitchell’s services are scheduled on Friday at 9:30 a.m. at  Christ the King Catholic Church, 624 N. Rossmore Ave. He will be buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.

 

Memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Assn. or Boys Town.

 

Here’s a field recording I made at Last Remaining Seats a few years ago of Mitchell playing “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”

 

Thanks to our friend Jon Weisman of the fabulous Dodger Thoughts blog for reminding us that Mitchell was the first organist at Dodger Stadium.
