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 Bloomfield community is rallying to help the Henry family whose four daughters were injured in a horrible Ontario Co. crash Tuesday Nov. 27. Even with the support of the small Bloomfield area, the Henrys have major obstacles to overcome. 17-year-old Jessica is paralyzed from the waist down, and her twin Joelle has a broken neck. Two other sisters Megan and Morgan have been released from the hospital but the long road to recovery for the Henrys is just in the early stages. Imagine being unable to walk when you're 17. Bloomfield teachers, staff, students and parents are organizing fundraisers but the bills are just beginning to pile up. If you would like to donate to help the family of seven children, here's where to send assistance:

God bless those who help, the Henry family in their battles ahead and God bless our troops.
