The Mayor Pete Kennedy
Weekdays 9am - 3pm
Born in Canandaigua NY, Pete Kennedy grew up the youngest of 5 Irish kids. His dad "Ham" was elected as Mayor of the city of Canandaigua and served 14 years while his youngest son Pete stole the title "Mayor". Ham earned the title and Pete pilfered it.
Pete helped a bunch of his buds at St. Marys School to found an actual radio station that played music over the PA system during lunch. Many of the nuns were less than impressed by the musical selections this young mob played over WSMR. Later, "Mayor" also served as captain of his beloved Canandaigua Academy football team the Braves.
After successfully graduating from SUNY Geneseo where he spent many hours "studying" humanity while DJing and bartending at the world famous Inn Between, he headed to the bright lights of the big city of Rochester NY where he's been rockin' Rochester radio waves for 25 years, now crankin' great tunes on 100.5 the Drive.
When not heckling callers and having fun with them on air, he's actively out working' the streets at various community and charitable events. Last year alone he was involved in over 120 events and has plans for many more in 2012.
I hope you realize how much we fully, unconditionally support our troops year round here. Today is a special day in our city: ROC The Day.

This seems too unbelievable but is actually true! The national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa says a man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela's memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake." Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa's government said it is preparing a statement.
Bruno Druchen says the unidentified man seen around the world on television next to leaders like U.S. President Barack Obama "was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for."
Do you believe that? My questions: how does security allow this to happen when there are 70 world leaders with massive security teams part of the service? Who would have the guts to try to pull off such a stunt at such a monumental historical event? And how many heads will roll after this embarrassment on the world stage?
I guess now is a time to remember that Nelson Mandela believed in forgiveness....you don't need an interpreter to know that.
Apologies if you saw me in my little elf costume at the Mistletoe Show Sunday night. Sometimes you take one for the team and look like a fool in front of thousands of people! What a night though....
Join me this Saturday night at the Holiday Spectacle of Lights at Camp Eastman in Irondequoit. Plenty of lights and family fun to lift you into the Christmas spirit. Here's some houses that have already lit up the holidays. Enjoy the tour HERE....
