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.
Let's face facts: you have alot to do everyday. Whether it be at work, at home raising the kids or driving them from event to event as director of transportation for the family, we both know it would be nice to sometimes not have to whip up dinner for your family when you finally get a minute to yourself. Here's a way to get out of that chore and help another family at the same time.
There will be a benefit Tues. afternoon from 3-7p at Nolans Restaurant at 130 Lakeshore Drive on the north end of Canandaigua Lake to benefit a pre-school teacher at St. Mary's School. Michele Cleaves suffered a massive stroke on Oct. 30 and the money raised with take-out orders this afternoon will go to defray the cost of medical bills that have stacked up during her long recovery. Chicken parmesan and pasta dinners, with a very tasty sauce (great sauce, trust me) by Chef Xan Bacon will be available for take-out only. More details by emailing Kristine at firstname.lastname@example.org or just stop by Nolans Tues. afternoon.. Checks can be made out to the "Michele Cleaves Fund". Thanks for helping and God bless Michele and her family.
