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.
Quick thoughts on Election Night 2012:
>> You have to give President Obama credit: people who like him come out and support him no matter what.
>> Investors don't seem to be as impressed as O's followers as stocks are tumbling in the election aftermath.
>> Speaking of tumbling, did you happen to watch Diane Sawyer on ABC's election coverage? She stumbled, mumbled and fumbled her way through the night, and her career might take a tumble as a result.
>> I was in downtown Rochester last night and it was easy to see the Dems were having much more fun than the Republicans.
>> Thank God we are done with the negative campaign TV attacks, phone calls and literature that was stuffed in our mail boxes. You'd think there would be a better way to waste million$ of buck$...
>> Now that it's all done, maybe we can focus on real people who actually care about our country. Veterans Day is a few days away. Thank a vet today and God bless our troops.
