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.
If you have a three day weekend ahead with the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jrs. birthday, here's some things to do to fill the time:
>> Amerks hockey: The boys are home Fri. night at 7:05 vs. Syracuse and for a special Monday matinee vs. Hamilton at 1:05. Monday's game is a tribute to first responders. First responders can get a free ticket for Monday's game by calling the Amerks at 454.5335. The team will wear special jerseys with a patch honoring the West Webster Fire Dept. heroes. After the game, the players will autograph the uniforms and auction them off on-line to benefit the families of the WWFD. Hockey for a great cause! More at www.amerks.com.
>> New movie action: If you haven't yet taken in Zero Dark Thirty and watched as the SEALS successfully went after Bin Laden, try out the Oscar nominee. Be ready to sit as it is a long flick, but so was the search for America's number one enemy. Also new this wknd. is Broken City, starring Mark Wahlberg (Marky Mark has come a long way from his hip hop days). Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones add drama to the flick.
>> Football or sled dogs? If you're not into watching the NFL Championship games Sunday between San Francisco and Atlanta, followed by Baltimore against New England, take the family out route 64 to the Mendon Ponds Winterfest from 11a-4p. Plenty of fun including cross country skiing, wagon rides and the famous sled dog races. The NFL games don't start til late afternoon, so take it all in.
>> Salute to Spencerport! 1st Lt. Zach Gonyea from the canal town will help to coordinate the military during the Inaugeration ceremonies Monday afternoon in Washington. Beyonce will perform the national anthem while Kelly Clarkson will sing My Country Tis of Thee. God bless Zach and all in uniform....God bless our troops.
