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.
Remember Jean Claude Brizard? He is the former very controversial Superintendant of the Rochester City School District. After ticking off many teachers by laying them off and messing with their classrooms, he abruptly left the RCSD 17 months ago to take over the schools in Chicago. That didn't turn out to be such a wise move as JCB has been let go by the Chicago Mayor after the disasterous teachers strike this fall. Here's some ideas for the former big shot to take in if he happens to be spending his unexpected off time here this wknd.
>> VerHulst Haunted Hayrides continue on Ridge Rd. in Spencerport as it's time to pick your pumpkin this wknd. If you don't want to scare the kids too much, bring 'em out Sun. afternoon to hang with JP from noon-2 for family fun. Or take in the Fall Festival at the Garden Factory on Buffalo Rd. in Gates. The kids will dig the light show.
>> Horses take centerstage at the Genesee Valley Hunt on Lima Rd. in Geneseo starting Sat. @ 10am. The tailgate parties are nearly as awesome as the beauty of the horses.
>> If you want to check out some tough ladies on skates, take in the Roc City Roller Derby Oktoberfest at the Dome Arena in Henrietta Sat. night @ 6p. The Dome will be closing soon and maybe the ladies will tear the place up.
>> If you want more refined fun, take in Casa Larga Vineyard's Meritage wine Harvest Festival Sat. and Sun. @ 1:30 and 3:30 for wine tastings. The festival runs daily through the wknd. from 10a-6p at 2287 Turk Hill Rd. in Perinton. If you see Jean Claude, buy him a glass of wine. He's gonna need it.
