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.
When the temps are in the 90s like today, there's only one way to crank up the heat even higher: LIVE music! We've got it for you over the next couple of days. Wed. night join us at the air conditioned Lovin Cup at Park Point at RIT for the 3rd round of 10 Ugly Bands. MoChester and Violet Mary hit the stage with one band moving onto the next round, hoping to eventually hit the big stage at 10 Ugly Men in front of thousands. Please join me after 9p and help to decide which band moves on. There's no cover charge and it's always great to check out live musicians livin' their dream. On Thurs. we hope for a breeze off the river at Party in the Park with Rusted Root on stage at the Riverside Festival site. Get there early as Rusted Root always draws a big crowd downtown. Live music lives..get out and support the music.
