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 know it's been raining too much lately. Here we are on July 1st and it feels like fall more than summer. Too much water lately? Apparently this woman didn't have enough water, as it drove her to drink, according to whec.com.
A 53-year-old woman faces drunken driving charges after she drove her car into the Erie Canal and climbed out the window as it sank.
Police in the Herkimer County village of Ilion tell local media outlets that Mary Ellen Dibrango of Ilion drove down a boat ramp into the canal Saturday evening. After she was helped to safety, she asked where her grandchildren were, prompting a search of the water that ended when authorities located the children safely at home. The kids are fine, and their granny is in too deep.
