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.
Over the last 3 weeks, we've all witnessed how the fire service is a true brotherhood. Men and women volunteer their free time to help others around them, never expecting a thank you or recognition. Everyone in Rochester has come to realize how valuable these everyday folks are, and how much they sacrifice for us all. Never has that sacrifice been more in focus than after Christmas Eve 2012. The Brighton Fire Dept. will aid in supporting the West Webster volunteers and their families by hosting a Boot Drive Sat. from 9a-1p in the 12 Corners area of Brighton. If you drive through the area, you will be asked to donate anything you'd like in a firefighters boot and those proceeds will go directly to the WWFD families hit by tragedy. It's a wonderful way to say thank you to those who are there 24/7, when needed or not. God bless those in uniform and our troops.
