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.
Congrats to the Webster Schroeder boys soccer team who will play in the state tourney this wknd. in Middletown NY. Schroeder continued a nice roll with a win in Hamburg NY this past Sat. and now faces Brentwood from downstate, a soccer dynasty.
Speaking of dynasties, how about the Hornell Red Raiders football program? They won their 50th straight game in a row and now have another shot at a state title this coming wknd. at Sahlens Stadium. Hornell has a new coach this season but the same results as the last 5 years. Good luck to both Schroeder and Hornell in their quest for a state championship this week!
