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 Powerball mania is spreading as Wednesday's jackpot will be at least $500 million, a total that continues to grow as more people scoop up tickets. No matter how many tickets are sold, the odds statistically stay the same that you will win:
1 in 175 million!
You have better odds of being hit by lightning in your lifetime: 1 in 5,000. But it's only $2 so why not dream? Here's what you can buy when your dream comes true Wed.:
870,103 iPads....or....11 private jets (each top-of-the-line toy priced at $45 mil)....or.... 251 11.25 carat diamond cut Tiffany rings at 1.8 million per finger.......or.....the town of Henry River Mill Village North Carolina for a cool million......or...how about Bill Gates 66,000 square foot estate in the state of Washington for $147 million? Too far away? You can spend a measly $3.9 million of your winnings to buy a house on Creek Street here as a small starter home. Wanna check the place out before you buy? Check the photo lineup on my next blog posting. And please remember your loyal DJ here when you hit it big. I'm cheap and will clean up after myself. Good luck!
