Beatles photographer Mike Mitchell - exclusive interview airs on May Pang show

 New York – Beatles photographer Mike Mitchell gave an exclusive interview yesterday with May Pang on her internet radio show on BlogTalkRadio.com called Dinner Specials with May Pang and Cynthia Neilson. Mitchell, a magazine photographer in 1964, took  46 photos of the Beatles during their first U.S. show, the Washington D.C. concert February 11, 1964, and then at the Baltimore show in September. His photos, never before seen, sold at Christies Auction House on July 20 for over $360,000, a shocking sum that has surprised even Mitchell.The live on-air interview with Pang lasted nearly an hour and illuminated how this all came to pass. Mitchell, who said he knew he’d be a photographer since the age of 13, was present at the Washington D.C. show to take photos of the Beatles, and then again in Baltimore in September. To quote from his story on his website, he describes the challenging conditions: β€œI had no flash equipment and was therefore forced to take my cues from what the light was doing.”
