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.
While we continue to learn more about the tragedy that happened on Christmas Eve along the shoreline of Lake Ontario, let us focus on the families and their heroes from the West Webster Fire Dept. I refuse to acknowledge the killer and prefer to focus on the good people who have been impacted. Calling hours for Firefighter and Webster Police Lt. Mike Chiapperini and Firefighter Tomacz Kaczowka will be held at Webster Schroeder High School on Friday from 6p-9p and Saturday from 12p-3p and 6p-9p. Lt. Chiapperini's funeral will be on Sunday December 30 at 12 noon at the high school while FF Kaczowka's funeral will be Monday December 31 at St. Stanislaus Church. May they rest in peace while we pray for their families and the others injured in this horrific act of hate and violence. God bless them all.
