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.
Fall sports move towards their final chapters this wknd. in Section 5.
The Exceptional Senior Section V soccer games will be played Sun. with the boys playing at MCC at noon, and the girls taking the field at Cal-Mum.
In high school football, the sectional champs travel west to All City High in Buffalo for state qualifying games against the Section 6 winners. Fri. Avon takes on Randolph at 5:30 followed by Eastridge playing Sweet Home at 8:30. Sat. Hornell puts its 49 game winning streak (second longest in NYS) on the line vs. Cleveland Hills at noon. It's amazing to me that one school can continue such dominance in a sport over such a long period of time. What a dynasty they've built in Hornell. Saturday's other games include East Rochester-Gananda vs. Alden at 3p and Aquinas battling Orchard Park at 6p. Good luck to all our fine Section 5 athletes as they take it to the next level (what a corny sports term) this wknd.
