Mark Shanahan and Meredith Goldstein
Longtime Boston radio host Ron Della Chiesa signed copies of his new book at Brasserie Jo the other night. Called “Radio My Way: Celebrity Profiles From Jazz, Opera, the American Songbook, and More,’’ the book includes some of Della Chiesa’s interviews with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave McKenna, Rosemary Clooney, and Bobby Short. Well-wishers at the book-signing included J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf, Carolina Balsbaugh, WZLX’s Cha-Chi Loprete, and Bill Lichtenstein, who’s working on a documentary about WBCN.
