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.
Welcome to April, even though it looks and feels more like November. This weather could be a cruel April Fools Day joke. It's no joke when you have to entertain your kids and keep them occupied during school break. Here's an idea for you to ponder for them. The National Museum of Play at Strong this week is featuring a 24,000 piece puzzle which took 400 hours to construct. You read that right: 24 THOUSAND pieces put together over 400 HOURS. I'm sure if you have young kids it will only take them 10 MINUTES to destroy it. It is waiting for you all week right next door to where I am typing this right now.
If your kid is more of the type who is more drawn to the water, Splash Week is underway at Rochester area YMCAs. Obviously swimming is the focus, and with the chilly air outside, it may be a good way to keep your child interested without having to pay thousands to travel south. Or if he or she really is more into fishing, today kicks off the trout season with The Reidman Trout Derby at Powder Mills Park off route 96.
If you personally wanna rock tonight, Green Day plays the Blue Cross Arena after Billie Joe Armstrong's successful return from rehab. I saw them a couple of summers ago at Darien and it's a killer show. And that's no April Fools Day joke!
