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.
Poor Brad Pitt. The guy has egg on his face that is adored by millions of women. Mr. Piit's new movie (I have to address him as Mr. when a man is supposedly perfect)...anyway, his new mob movie appears to be a flop. Here's the rundown on this past weekend's movie action at US theaters:
1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2> $17.4 million ($254.6 mil so far)
2. Skyfall> 17 mil ($246 mil since Nov. 9 in the US, the biggest Bond movie ever)
3. Lincoln> $13.5 mil (and he wasn't nearly as good looking as Pitt)
4. Rise of the Guardians> $13 mil
5. Life of Pi> $12 mil
You have to go all the way down to #7 to find Pitt's crime story titled Killing Them Softly which pulled in a meager $7 million in it's debut weekend, far short of the $13 mil that was projected by experts. And since Brad Pitt normally commands a salary of $15-20 mil per movie, factor in the marketing and production costs and the pretty boy that was discovered in Thelma & Louise has a bomb on his hands this time. There's no doubt he will bounce back and continue to be one of the biggest stars on the planet, but the flop still has to sting a bit. I'm sure Angalina Jolie will help her man get over it. And I'm equally sure there are plenty of volunteers who would assist in that mission. As I stated at the beginning, poor Brad Pitt!
