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.
A new Pew survey out says that you may not be alone if you are suffering from facebook fatigue. The survey of 1,006 adults was conducted in December. Again, this was a Pew survey of adults, so we know teens and kids will react differently. The survey found 67% of Americans who are on the internet have tried facebook. 20% of this total have stayed while the others have drifted away. Of those remaining and tied into facebook, 61% of users say they have experienced fatigue and take 2-3 weeks off from their page and account. They complain that "there's too much drama", there is a "lack of privacy" and they "have spent way too much time on facebook". Do you suffer with them? I have friends who are completely addicted and feel that others need to know what they are doing at all times and what they're feeling. I personally shy away from too many details about my life and rarely post pictures while out. After all, who really is that interested in what I do or where I am? And how many pictures of cute animals do we need to have shared? What do you think? Which % of Americans do you fit into?
