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.
As Alanis Morissette once said: isn't it ironic....
....that students who are taught art at the School of the Arts in the city did art work on their own building Tues.? 28 arrested for graffiti and other vandalism at the beautiful building on Prince St. Those city school kids are really getting a great education.
....the Director of the Monroe Co. Crime Lab was fired Tues for NOT doing work on crime cases? She and her ace assistant were allegedly tossing cases and evidence aside because of a backlog of crime in the area. It's not a crime per se, but still ironic.
....that the New York Thruway Authority, who was supposed to abolish itself and get rid of tolls decades ago, is now looking at raising tolls on the Thruway AGAIN? How often does a governmental agency EVER abolish their own jobs? I think the answer is never.
....that Dallas is back on TV again starting tonight on TNT at 9? The once top-rated TV soap opera has been off the air for decades and didn't J.R. get shot then? But now he's back? Have the TV writers run out of story ideas, just like the movie script writers who keep resurrecting old ideas for today's movies?
....that now I've run out of things to write about that are ironic?
