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.
You don't find a sinkhole very often around here, but our chums at 13WHAM News did in Greece. If I had paid closer attention in Geology class at Geneseo St., I could explain this. Here's the scoop:
It's a sinkhole, at least 4-and-a-half feet wide.
When the Coons family first noticed it on their Latona Road property last
week, it was 2 feet wide.
The Coons believe that an old tank or pipe had given away after all the
moisture from the recent rain had seeped through the ground. For the last week,
they have not allowed their three children and dog to play in the backyard
The sinkhole measures about 6 feet deep.
There is rain in the forecast soon, and the Coons hope that the sinkhole does
not get bigger.
