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.
Two Rochester identical twins went national in a big way Mon. night on the 4th season premiere of "The Voice" on NBC. Rhian and Cara Morgan have been performing around town for years and arrived in the showcase spot as the opening performers on the show. The 28-year-olds immediately impressed holdover judge Blake Shelton along with newcomer Usher as the two judges jumped at the first chance to spin their chairs around after hearing just a couple notes of Alicia Keys hit "Fallin" from the Morgans. Judge Adam Levine of Maroon 5 then joined in and after seeing the twins in their matching red dresses, called it "a surreal moment". New judge Shakira also spun her chair to beg the girls to join her team. After being courted by the 4 superstars, the sisters chose country crooner Blake Shelton to mentor them as they advance to the next round on "The Voice". It was quite a start for the two beauties and had the judges talking. Shelton nicknamed them "the Doublemint Twins". Expect big things ahead for the Morgans.
Maybe they will make as big an impression on the music world someday as Justin Timberlake continues to do.
