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.
I hope you had a better weekend than a couple of celebs who made the news for the wrong reasons. NBC sportscaster Al Michaels was arrested in Santa Monica CA for suspicion of driving under the influence. Al became famous during the Lake Placid Olympics when announcing the famous "Miracle on Ice" victory for Team USA over Russia in the 1980 games. He's been the voice of Monday Night Football and NBC's lead announcer on Sunday Night Football for over 20 years.
Actress Reese Witherspoon's husband had his own encounter for allegedly driving drunk in Atlanta early Fri. morning. While the cops had him out of the rented car, Reese rushed to the defense of her man and was arrested for disorderly conduct. While being handcuffed, she allegedly uttered the immortal Hollywood words "don't you know who I am?" She has since apologized and feels embarrassed. Here's a view of her mugshot courtesy of the Atlanta Dept. of Corrections. Just remember, as has been proven more than a few times this wknd. the cops always win!
