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.
Graduation parties, music, and partying like an animal this weekend:
>> The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival is underway in the East End. It's some of the best people watching of the summer for the next 8 days downtown.
>> People are rallying to the defense of Greece (the town, not the economicly challenged country)! Some citizens of Greece feel their town has received a black eye across America after the way the punks treated their bus monitor this week, so they're holding a rally Fri. at 7p at Apollo Middle School. Just down the road from there, fun will take centerstage at the Barnard Carnival on Maiden Lane all weekend.
>> Use your animal instincts and rock along the river at ZooBrew at the Seneca Park Zoo Fri. from 5:30p-9.
>> It's a beautiful weekend to be at Frontier Field for Red Wings baseball, Fri. and Sat. at 7:05 with fireworks post-game, and Sun. at 5:05p.
>> The summer of Riesling kicks off at Casa Larga in Perinton Sat. and Sun. from 12p-5p.
>> And a traffic tip for anyone in Webster or Wayne Co. who uses the Bay Bridge to head into town for any of the above fun. The Bay Bridge closes Fri. at 8p for westbound travel all weekend. You'll need to get off at Bay Rd. and head to Empire Blvd. to make the western trek. Good luck with that hassle and have a great weekend.
