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 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief is upon us, and what a lineup of talent tonight! The Rolling Stones join the show after 7 tonight at Madison Square Garden along with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Who, Sir Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Roger Waters and plenty more to raise ca$h for the victims of Hurricane Sandy over a month ago. I can't remember such a stellar lineup of superstars in one venue. We may have to think all the way back to Live Aid back in 1985 in London to try to match the level of talent. Make sure you don't miss it Wed. after 7p on mydrivefm.com and on 95.5 the Brew, It will be a hell of a way to lend support to our neighbors downstate. Enjoy the music and support the Robin Hood Relief Fund.
