Spaceman spotted at benefit for WBCN documentary

Former Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee had a ball at this week’s fund-raiser for the WBCN documentary “The American Revolution.” The Spaceman said he drove the 226 miles from his home in Vermont to support Bill Lichtenstein ’s film and also to see his old friend, former ’BCN DJ Charles Laquidara , who flew in from Hawaii for the show. “Me and Chuck go way back,” Lee told us. “I love that guy.” He also enjoyed the evening’s entertainment, which included performances by Al Kooper , Jonathan Edwards , Billy Squier , Willie “Loco” Alexander , James Montgomery , and former Boston members Barry Goudreau and Sib Hashian , whose medley of songs from the band’s record-breaking first LP had Lee playing some serious air guitar in the crowd. “[ Dennis Eckersley ] and I used to smoke with those guys in the runway at Fenway Park,” Lee said. (Since he was in a mood to chat, we asked if the 66-year-old lefty likes the Mike Napoli signing. In a word: No!) Aside from the many luminaries onstage, there were a few familiar faces in the crowd, including promoter Don Law, arts patron Ted Cutler, who was with girlfriend, former ’BCN DJ Carolyn Fox, WBCN founder Ray Riepen, “Here & Now” host Robin Young, WXRT’s Norm Winer, Phoenix Media’s David Bieber, venture capitalist Mitchell Kertzman, and CBS Radio marketing man Chachi Loprete and his wife, Stephanie.
