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.
Americans are a resilient bunch. After we get over the shock of the possible demise of Twinkies and Ho Hos, we get back to the real world and help our neighbors who are struggling. Today marks three weeks since Hurricane Sandy tore lives apart downstate and along the shore. While some are helpless in their continued grief, others here are organizing to provide assistance to those who need the help. Here's two local drives underway as we head into the Thanksgiving holiday:
>> Greece has come together to organize help for Freeport Long Island as the Greece fire agencies join the town hall staff, the YMCA, Greece Central School District and local churches to support a collection on Sat. 11/24 and Sun. 11/25 at the North Greece training facility at 1766 Latta Rd. Donations such as toys, pet food, pet supplies and non-perishable food will be accepted on a daily basis. They are asking that you refrain from dropping clothing off. Good luck to Al Camp and his fellow first responders.
>> The Livingston Co. Sheriffs Office will conduct a Relief Drive from Tues. 11/20 - 11/27 from 8a-4p at the Sheriffs Office on Main St. in Geneseo. They're hoping to build up stocks of toiletries, cleaning supplies, diapers and wipes and cases of bottled water to send downstate. God bless the good folks under the leadership of Sheriff Jack York and Undersheriff Jim Czeniak for their good efforts. Don't forget to check around our site here for details of A Concert for Sandy Relief on 12/12/12 and God bless our troops.
