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.
The National Toy Hall of Fame at Strong has announced the newest inductees. And the winners are....(wish I had a toy drum for the drum roll here)....... Star Wars action figures and Dominoes! Luke Skywalker must be so excited that Star Wars is a winner again. Some questions that come to mind: Will George Lucas come to town for the induction? Will Mark Hamill break out his old wardrobe for the gala ceremony? And how about the fact Dominoes (the game, not pizza) remains relevant after centuries of play? When it comes to toys, does age really ever matter? As they say on the lottery drawings on TV, play on America!
