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.
Here we go again.....another example of parents being great role models for the kids. Greece cops report a fight broke out at a soccer game Tues. afternoon at Greece Arcadia HS. No, this fight wasn't on the field between the teams, it was on the sidelines with parents! GPD charged 54-year-old Paul Siclare and 42-year-old Sherrie Siclare of Hilton with harassment after Sherrie allegedly grabbbed a woman and pushed her down. Paul has been accused of jumping into action by tackling a man on the sidelines. Wonder what the kids on the field thought. I remember when I was in 7th grade when my dad was "asked to leave" a Seneca Falls gym after yelling at the refs (who deserved it) when I was playing CYO basketball. Even though the refs were doing a horrible job, it still wasn't the proudest moment I shared with my dad in my childhood. I can still remember the embarrassment I felt as my pop was being escorted out of the gym. At least he didn't resort to violence. Can't imagine what the scene was like at Arcadia yesterday but I'm sure the players were equally proud. The battling Siclare family of Hilton will now have to deal with the public embarrassment of appearing in Greece court while dodging TV cameras outside.
