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.
31-year-old Michael Makolinski of Buffalo sure is a hard working guy. So much so that he netted $14,000 for three months of work. Unfortunately for Mr. Makolinski, his job was illegal. Our motivated Buffalonian was sent to prison yesterday after being arrested for robbing 5 banks over 3 months, starting in Buffalo, heading west to Erie PA and eventually finding his way to the Fairport Savings Bank branch in Irondequoit. After getting away with $14K, he will have plenty of time to analyze if his three month tour was worth it as he was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Doing my feeble math, that means he scored just a little over $1000 per month of prison time. Who says crime doesn't pay?
