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.
Did you watch Lance Armstrong suck up to Oprah last night? I did not, but it was predictable. He admitted what most already knew. Yes, he lied. Yes, he cheated. He said he did so because he's so competitive. You and I are competitive, so should we start doing the same? I hope not. And I hope that Lance fades away now. I'll give him credit that he helped to raise lot$ of cash for cancer research and gave many hope. But that work is tainted, and you can tell he misses the spotlight, the ability to compete and the adulation. After round two of Oprah's interview tonight, I hope this doesn't begin a "forgiveness tour". He cheated on the Tour de France, so why believe him now? Thanks for letting so many believers down. Now, ride off into the sunset Lance.
